Big tragedy may happen in Peshawar, Quetta rallies: Sheikh Rasheed
LAHORE: Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed on Saturday expressed fear that a big tragedy may happen in Peshawar and Quetta rallies.
Talking about the banned Tehreek e Taliban (TTP), while addressing a press conference in Lahore, the federal minister said the TTP had Indian money and it had become active again. However, he said, it was the government’s responsibility to stop it.
“I pray for the public gatherings of Quetta and Peshawar, but a big tragedy may take place anywhere in the country. Miscreants have entered Pakistan for carrying out terror activities,” he said.
Reshuffling may take place in Pakistan’s politics and between December 31 and February 20 dust would settle on the political scenario, he said.
Sheikh Rasheed said PM Imran Khan was ready for consultation but he would not talk on NRO.
“Those criticizing Pak army were acting upon the enemy’s agenda. 90 percent of the population loves Pakistan Army and rest of the 10 percent people were frustrated. Children of defeated people hold foreign citizenships and they themselves hold Iqamas,” he said.
He said Imran will try his best to bring Nawaz Sharif back. He said Imran was not going anywhere.
“If sit-in protests could topple a government, then the PTI had held 126-day long protest but the government could not be toppled,” he said.
