Sheikh Rashid warns PDM of corona spread and terrorism

Federal Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid on Saturday warned opposition parties’ alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) about the spread of COVID-19 and terrorism in the wake of their rallies planned across the country, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a news conference at Railway Headquarters in Lahore, the minister reiterated that Prime Minister Imran Khan will not give any NRO to the Opposition. “JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman is going to play the religious card,” Sheikh Rashid claimed.

The minister said Pakistan Armed Forces have a vital role in maintaining the country’s sovereignty.

Before the press talk, Sheikh Rashid presided over the weekly meeting at Railway Headquarters in Lahore, which discussed outsourcing of trains, the tender procedure for coaches and wagons rolling stock, railway yard security and other issues.

The meeting was attended by Chairman Railway Board Habib-ur-Rehman Gilani, IG Railway Police Arif Nawaz, CEO Pakistan Railways Nisar Ahmad Memon and other concerned officers.

He said there is an ongoing conspiracy against the Army and foreign powers want to destabilize Pakistan. “Pakistan’s Army is the country's democracy, economy and stability,” Sheikh Rashid added.

He said it’s been a year that Nawaz Sharif has gone to London but he fooled the whole nation and the world because he did not go to the hospital for treatment.

Without naming the opposition parties, he said, “Those who are stepping out against the Pakistan Army are actually fulfilling the agenda of enemies.”
