Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Thursday predicted that JUI-F supremo Maulana Fazlur Rehman will be ditched by the other opposition parties and he will be the biggest political loser amid all of the PDM rallies.
He also predicted that the political parties’ foreign funding case is very important and it has the potential to become ‘Panama-II’. He said more properties of Maulana Fazlur Rehman are going to be unearthed.
“We took such a big risk which is unprecedent in the history of Pakistan on the instructions of Prime Minister Imran Khan and allowed entry into the Red Zone of the opposition’s protest rally which they staged in front of the Election Commission of Pakistan,” he said while addressing a news conference in Karachi.
Sheikh Rasheed accepted that PDM opposition parties cooperated and timely concluded the protest and if such a cooperation would be extended during their long march then the government would also do the same.
“Maulana Sahib’s affairs are going to take an ugly plunge as he will get nothing out of all this,” the federal minister said.
He also announced plans to make Karachi a safe city with an installation of security cameras that will likely be funded by the Sindh government.
Earlier in the day, the interior minister visited Rangers Headquarters where he was received by Director General Rangers Major General Iftikhar Hassan Chaudhry.
The Rangers DG briefed the minister on the operational readiness of the paramilitary force. Sheikh Rasheed appreciated the performance of the Rangers in maintaining peace in the province. He also laid floral wreath at the memorial of martyrs.
