Shiekh Rasheed said that the government had neither bargained nor surrendered over the money laundering bill in the parliament. "Nawaz Sharif was still looking for an NRO. He has no courage to serve his punishment in jail," he added. He predicted that the opposition parties’ APC will fail. He further claimed that ‘S-league’ will soon leave Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). The railways minister said an Indian plot to foment Shia-Sunni sectarian violence in Rawalpindi has been foiled as the suspects have been busted.
