Sheikh Rasheed Refutes Speculations of Deal with Nawaz

RAWALPINDI: Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed on Sunday refuted speculations on the social media that deal was made between the government and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for providing relief to former premier Nawaz Sharif.

Talking to media on the occasion of the Steam Engine safari tourism train inauguration, the minister said: “Timings are very important in any war or politics, better time is ahead for politics in Pakistan.

“The Lahore High Court (LHC) has allowed Nawaz Sharif to travel abroad, and no one else has any role to play in this matter,” he added.

“Next two to three months are important […] the situation will improve thereafter,” he said, adding: “Neither deal was struck nor relief was provided […] respect of both the government and Nawaz Sharif was saved.”

Rasheed said that the High Court’s ruling in Nawaz Sharif’s petition for the removal of his name from the Exit Control List (ECL) without any condition “is a win for the Law”.

Pakistan Railways Vista Tourism wing today will launch an Attock bound Steam Engine safari tourism train from Rawalpindi.

The objective of the safari train is to project the culture, civilisation, heritage and worth seeing beautiful places of Pakistan before the world.

The tourists and photographers of Japan, Australia, USA, Italy and Germany will travel in the safari train.
