KARACHI: Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Saturday said that Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz was taking the politics into a blind alley.
Talking to media in Karachi, Sheikh Rasheed said that Prime Minister Imran Khan could discuss anything but NRO. While, he said, Imran Khan would complete his five-year tenure.
He said Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari adopted a responsible attitude in his interview with a foreign media by saying that the opposition parties did not agree on naming military leaders in public gatherings.
The railways minister said that all the political parties in Gilgit-Baltistan were participating in the elections but it remained to be seen whether the losers would accept defeat or not.
On Karachi’s railway project, he said the government was working on restoration of the Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) to resolve the issue of travelling in the mega city.
“We want to remove all encroachments on the track of KCR in minimum time,” he said.
The minister said the government also desired to lay railway track from Peshawar to Jalalabad to improve connectivity between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Sheikh Rasheed said there was a plan to handover some passenger trains to private sector.
He said the democratic process in the country would continue to strengthen and the incumbent government would complete its constitutional term.
