ISLAMABAD, Mar 18 (APP): Minister for Interior Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Thursday said Abdul Hafeez Sheikh would continue his work as a finance minister.
Talking to a private news channel, he said money had played an important role in defeating Abdul Hafeez Sheikh in the recent Senate elections against Yousaf Raza Gillani. The minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan and his government would complete its five years tenure, adding the prime minister was never afraid of the opposition.
Replying to a question, he said the Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz were never united earlier and would never stay united in future and both the parties were together to topple the present government but they would not succeed in their objectives. He said the co-chairman of PPP Asif Ali Zardari was playing his cards carefully. He said doors are never closed in politics and personally he is in favour of holding dialogue with all political parties.
He said those who hurled eggs on Shahbaz Gill and Captain (R) Safdar were low-minded people. To another query, he said Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar is not going to be changed as he had full confidence of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
