Sheikh Rashid lambasts govt for not addressing issues of poor people
Says attempts to arrest Imran Khan would cost the government heavily
RAWALPINDI (Dunya News) – Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmad hit out at the government for giving priority to its interests over issues being faced by poor segment of society.
In a series of tweets, the former interior minister said the government was unable to strike a deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for revival of the loan programme, adding: “Pakistan has been turned into a death zone for poor”.
He said the ruling coalition did not consider unemployment, inflation and economic disaster major issues as its sole purpose was to arrest PTI Chairman Imran Khan. Mr Ahmad said attempts to arrest the former premier would cost the government heavily.

The AML chief said PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari considered the economic default as a “normal thing” because his wealth had been transferred abroad through man in the street. He said, “If the government does not accept the decisions of the Supreme Court regarding the elections, then where will the nation go?”
He expected that a decision would be taken soon about holding elections in the country at the same time.
