LAHORE: Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Saturday recommended the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) members to not bring their individual problems out in the open by discussing them on public platforms.
Resolving an interview at the Railways Head Office here, Rasheed stated: “I can only request since I am in no position to restrict them to not to wash their dirty laundry in public.”
The minister stated it was the duty of individuals in federal government to project the prime minister and his federal government in a favorable way however most definitely they did not prosper in doing so. “You don’t even need the opposition’s criticism if you behave in such a demeaning manner.”
When inquired about the “minus-one formula” which the PML-N and PPP have actually been promoting for a long time now, Rasheed stated it was never ever going to occur.
“Imran Khan isn’t going anywhere. There will be no such thing as minus-one. If such a thing ever takes places, it will be minus-three,” he stated without more elaborating.
While discussing his experience after contracting the coronavirus, Rsheed stated that he would not want it “even on his enemies”.
“This is a very serious and fearsome disease. There have been four attempts on my life and five of my colleagues were killed, I was never fearful. But I would not wish this virus even on my enemies. I pray for Shehbaz Sharif to recover as well.”
Criticising the opposition for the “condition of the healthcare system”, Rasheed stated that in spite of handling 14 ministries throughout his political profession, he had actually been not able to get an injection that he required for his treatment.
“I could not get that injection even for Rs500,000. Thankfully, NDMA Chairperson Lt Gen Mohammad Afzal was able to get it for me,” he stated.
