PML Q blackmailing Govt: Sheikh, "You forgot our money", Monis

Manan Mandokhail :

Cracks appeared within the ruling coalition on Saturday when Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed accused the Pakistan Muslim League (Q) of blackmailing the government after voting of no confidence. “With seats, they are blackmailing the government to gain CM ship”, he told reporters in Quetta.

When asked about blackmailing, the Minister clarified that he was referring to the politics of Punjab, not Balochistan. This prompted the Federal Water Resources Minister, Monis Elahi to criticize Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed. “You forgot our money”, Monis Elahi said. As a student, Sheikh Sab was taking money from our elders, he claimed.

The Interior Minister arrived in Quetta and inaugurated the mega center of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) on Saturday. Deputy Speaker National Assembly, Qasim Suri, and others were also present on the occasion.

Ghafoor Hydri deliberately took photos with me

“This morning Maulana Ghafoor Hyderi deliberately took a photo with me at the airport”, he said. Sheikh Rasheed stated, “I always keep contact with number one not number two”,

The Minister lashed out at the opposition parties and accused them of deceiving the masses under what he called the cover of a vote of no confidence. “They are selling their conscience not votes”, he said. “I will stand by Prime Minister Imran Khan and he will complete five years”, he said.

Over 300 people stormed inside the parliament lodges

He said over 300 people stormed inside the parliament lodges, which created security at risk. When asked about the arrest of two members of the national assembly, he said that the two members deliberately handed themselves over to police to gain publicity. “We provided them good food and sent them back”, he said.

He said no militia would be allowed to take the law into their hands. The government has the constitutional authority to convene the military under article 245 of the constitution but currently, there was no need, he said.
