Rasheed says govt, army on same page

Federal Minister for Interior Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad Tuesday said that the government and the army were on the same page.

According to the 24News HD TV channel, the interior minister addressed a press conference in Islamabad on Tuesday and said that the political and military leadership was on one page.

Answering different queries from the journalists, Rasheed said that he would make contact with the banned outfit Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) tomorrow (Wednesday).

The interior minister said that he would do his best to convince the leadership of the banned religious organization and hopefully, the TLP would clear the GT Road at Muredke from both sides.

“We all have to protect the honour of the Prophet”, he said adding that the government and the TLP had agreed on all but one issue of the French Embassy.

He confirmed that he had presented his report to Prime Minister Imran Khan on the TLP issue in the presence of General Qamar Javed Bajwa, ISI Director General Faiz Hameed and DG Military Intelligence (MI). 

The interior minister also accepted that the country was under pressure of inflation and rupee depreciation.
