Shehbaz is more shady than Nawaz: Interior Minister

By Uzma Zafar
ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed while citing some documents claimed that PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif was “more corrupt” than his elder brother and former premier Nawaz Sharif.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Friday, Rashid took a swipe at the Sharif family, saying that they no longer have any role in country’s politics while asking them to “stop waiting for any good opportunity”.
Rashid said that the country’s political arena would not be affected whether Nawaz, who has been living in London since 2019, return to Pakistan or not.
“All four Sharifs are minus from country’s politics,” he added.
He said that the PTI-led government would complete its tenure and expressed the confidence that it will form the next government too.
The minister said that opposition parties were disappointed since the present government was successfully running the state affairs against their wishes.
He said that the government had already completed its three and half-year tenure while the opposition still needed its “warm-up time” ahead of next general elections in 2023.
“The opposition has been saying since last year that PTI is going to lose power, but it should clear any misunderstanding about the government. Prime Minister Imran Khan is so lucky to have got such incompetent and ineffective opposition,” he remarked.
He said the opposition had no vision to understand the prevailing situation and they had selected the wrong time for holding the protest. “They have already missed their chance and now they will get nothing but waste time.”
“We will welcome them and won’t try to stop them or take any action against their protests,” he added.
