Awami Muslim League (AML) chief and former federal minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed claimed Monday that the general elections will be held in October, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a press conference in Lahore, he said that the next 45 days are important and general will be held in October.
He claimed that the Sharif family is not on the same page, whereas, former president and Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Asif Zardari has damaged the politics of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).
He said the incapable government has made the masses suffer with ballooning inflation as the prices of gas, petrol, electricity and other commodities have reached a record high.
He claimed that soon the masses will suffer more as the government is going to increase gas prices phenomenally.
He urged the Lahoriites to play their due role to bring a change in the country by rejecting the rulers who came through a conspiracy.
Sheikh Rasheed said that transparent elections will have to be conducted so that the people could understand where politics is heading, otherwise, the country will become Sri Lanka.
“July 17 by-elections will witness a fierce battle in the history of politics,” he said and added the Sharif family is not on one page, whereas, Nawaz Sharif has asked for 72 hours for his decision.
Sh Rasheed said the current coalition and the USA have made Imran Khan and his party PTI a hero as the NSC declaration regarding interference have convinced the masses regarding the conspiracy against PTI's government.
The former minister while warning of rigging in by-elections said that Lahore’s population is more than that of Sri Lanka and the situation shouldn’t be made like Sri Lanka.
