ISLAMABAD -UNS – Following a new debate on the usage of word ‘selected’ in the National Assembly (NA) for the premier, Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed has termed it “inappropriate” to call elected prime minister “a selected one.”
“Shehbaz Sharif’s and my mother party is the same…We have never changed our party,” he said, adding that there two parties in the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).
“The one is Shehbaz League, and the other is Nawaz League…They don’t have the guts to hold a sit-in for 126 days,” he went on to say.
The railways minister said that PPP leader Khurshid Shah has said to make Jamiat Ulema-e Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman understand that an elected representative should not be called ‘selected’.
Furthermore, regarding the government’s reforms in the state institutions, Rasheed said the government was determined to improve all institutions, and an attempt has been made to reduce the deficit by Rs3 to 4 billion.
He said the rates of tickets were increased following a spike in prices of crude oil. “1.7 million liter of oil has been saved and 34 trains were made functional.”
