Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed inaugurated the Quaid-e-Azam’s rehabilitated portrait at Islamabad Expressway on Monday, which collapsed due to rain last year.
Addressing a news conference he said PPP and PML-N had remained arch political rivals in the past but made the alliance under the PDM’s banner only to oust Prime Minister Imran Khan.
He claimed that their political moves posed no threat to the government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, which had already completed its three years successfully.
The minister said the government had nothing to do with the infighting of the PDM’s component parties, rather it happened due to their own incompetency. “It led to the visible cracks deep inside the opposition alliance.”
He urged the opposition parties to support the government in the Parliament for major reforms including political, legal, electoral, and municipal reforms for the development of the country.
Rashid regarded Prime Minister Imran Khan as ‘the skipper of politics’ and expressed his resolve for supporting him through all the thick and thins.
The minister said the prime focus of the government was to address the basic issues of the masses such as inflation, adding, “Imran Khan sticks to his stance against corruption as the people of the country wanted full recovery of the looted money.”
