PTI to win majority in Senate elections due in March: Sh Rashid

Federal Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid while asking 30 questions from Maryam Nawaz has warned her against launching personal attacks against him otherwise he will reveal such information that will bring a ‘political storm’ in the country,  reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a news conference in Lahore on Saturday, Sheikh Rashid said, “Maryam Nawaz has the advantage of being a woman.”

He said Prime Minister Imran khan has assigned him a responsibility to answer the questions of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) and predicted that next four months are very important and after that everything will be wrapped up.

He said, “Nawaz Sharif has taken over the command of the party as he does not trust anyone except his daughter.”

The minister reiterated that the Sheen League will come out from Noon League. He said when the nation was fighting against sectarianism and terrorism Nawaz Sharif was speaking against the Army.

Sh Rashid said, “Today, Nawaz Sharif hates courts. Maryam Nawaz should tell what happened to her uncle and she should tell why her father, who is very ill, has not gone to any hospital yet.”

“Why Maryam Nawaz was silent for a year, I swear they were bargaining,” he alleged. 

Sheikh Rashid advised JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman to be very careful from PML-N as PML-N had ditched him twice before.

He said, “You will be ashamed when Imran Khan will take the majority in the Senate in March elections.”

The minister once again dared the opposition to go for mass resignations so the government can conduct the elections subsequently. He claimed that the Pakistan People’s Party will not resign.

Earlier, the Railways Minister chaired a meeting at Railways Headquarters in which it was decided that 24 more trains will be privatized while six goods trains are also going to be privatized. Sheikh Rashid announced to operate Lahore-Mianwali train from 20th October.
