Opposition divided on issue of resignations: Sheikh Rashid

Islamabad, December 27, 2020 (PPI-OT): Minister for Interior Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has said that the incumbent government will complete its five years constitutional tenure due to timely decisions and positive political approach of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Talking to a private news channel, he said the opposition parties are divided on the issue of resignations, but they are pretending as united in order to pressurize the government. Sheikh Rashid said opposition wants to destabilize the country for protecting its personal interests, but the state would never allow them to do so at any cost.

The Interior Minister expressed his optimism that the opposition would take part in the Senate elections and would not tender resignations. He said the opposition alliance is using the resignations issue as a political stunt. Replying to a question, he said the politics of JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman is based on personal vendetta.
