‘Govt not to hinder long march’ All parties should decide about Senate election votes: Rasheed


Observer Report


Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Sunday said that, “All political parties should sit together and make decisions about the Senate election votes. The process of buying and selling votes can then be avoided.”
He was speaking during a ceremony in Rawalpindi during which he accused PML-N leader Shahbaz Sharif of paying $750,000 to the NAB. “I had already predicted that they [the Opposition leaders] will not submit their resignations, and that is exactly what happened,” he said. Sending a message to Pakistan Democratic Movement’s chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Sheikh Rasheed said that the government is “ready to participate along with Fazl in the Kashmir solidarity rally.”
He added that the Opposition should announce the date of the long march because the government would “not cause any impediments for them and would welcome them instead.” Speaking about the Opposition’s stance on the Senate elections, Sheikh Rasheed said that “Bilawal Bhutto can bring about the no-confidence motion in the Senate a hundred times,” but he should remember that when the PPP had “66 members in the Senate, then 11 of them had gone missing.”
