  • Sheikh Rasheed says PM Imran Khan will complete the remaining one year of his tenure by “hook or by crook”.
  • The minister says he is not aware of provincial politics as he doesn’t do politics there.
  • “Please don’t push the country towards anarchy as the consequences will be irreversible,” Rasheed says.

LAHORE: Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad on Tuesday said that “the umpire stands with Pakistan and those who care for Pakistan are convincing them to resolve the matters through understanding.”

“They are the supporters of democracy and they are thinking about Pakistan. They stand with no one but Pakistan,” Rasheed said while addressing a press conference in Lahore.

He said the Opposition created confusion in the last four years and now it’s just one year left in the next general elections.

Opposition ka upar wala khana khali hai (Opposition lacks wisdom) […] but all these imperialist maggots would meet their end after reaching D-Chowk,” he said.

The minister went on to say that the government will try to control the situation at D-Chowk and if it couldn’t, then it is up to the Opposition. However, he warned that the Opposition would face a loss if any incident takes place at the D-Chowk.

“Imran Khan’s rule is not going anywhere. Four years of his tenure [as the prime minister] have been completed and he will complete the remaining one year by hook or by crook,” Rasheed said.

Commenting on the political situation in Punjab, the minister said that he is not aware of provincial politics as he doesn’t do politics there.

Moreover, Rasheed said that the last week of March would be important for the country. 

“Maulana Fazlur Rehman should understand that the politics of Maula Jatt won’t work, therefore, he should come to Islamabad on March 23 and the government will provide him complete security,” he said, adding that he himself would be responsible if anyone is stopped from proceeding to the D-Chowk.

He said that the Opposition doesn’t have enough numbers and bids are being made in the market, adding that “sell-outs” only face humiliation, as they can never succeed.

Urging the Opposition to rethink their moves he said: “Please don’t push the country towards anarchy and the consequences will be irreversible,” Rasheed said.

The weather on Thursday morning was nice due to rain and a cool breeze that covered the province of Punjab, including the capital city Lahore and its surrounding districts.

Residents of these cities were relieved of the oppressive heatwave that had been predicted by the precipitation as the temperature dropped.

The monsoon rainfall system is expected to begin today and last until July 21, according to the Meteorological Department.

Transportation is becoming more difficult for the general public as a result of the flooding of low-lying parts of Punjabi cities including Jhelum, Hafizabad, Gujrat, and Rawalpindi.

For Gilgit Baltistan, KP, and Islamabad, the Meteorological Department has also predicted the amount of rain.

The NDMA reported that rainfall totaling over 50 mm is expected in the following areas: Sialkot, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Chakwal, Jhelum, and Gujranwala. In Murree, Galyat, Kashmir, and KP, there is also a chance of land slides.

While condemned the death of security personnel in recent terror attacks in Pakistan, the United States on Wednesday praised Pakistan’s ongoing efforts to combat terrorism.

US State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller told reporters at a White House news briefing that the US would keep cooperating with Pakistan to maintain regional security and urged the Afghan Taliban not to use Afghan territory as a base for terror strikes in Pakistan.

Additionally, he emphasised that eliminating terrorism was in the best interests of both Pakistan and the United States and that the people of Pakistan had made many sacrifices in the fight against terrorism. The US will continue to assist Pakistan in its economic aspirations, he said, adding that the two countries were cooperating on a number of fronts.
