Current system can’t be labeled as democracy: Sheikh Rasheed
On Sunday, Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad said that the current system cannot be labeled as democracy because such ‘disabled’ (so called) democracy can be turned into tragedy any time.
Speaking to the journalists, the railways minister termed that in the current system the people get interim bail till nine months. “If people are being awarded bails on official holidays then that system can’t be labeled democracy,” he added.
Commenting on the PPP and the PML-N leadership Sheikh Rasheed opined that both the juggernauts of their respective parties are done for and can’t make a comeback to the political arena.
He further said that the N League party is occupied by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, however, Shehbaz Sharif was here to put on a show for the media and his return in essence is hollow.
“Shehbaz is here to play a little with the media and will skedaddle back to London post the budget session,” he said. “Shehbaz is acting up, no one is out to arrest him,” he claimed.
He re-iterated the fact that he does not see any political future for the like of former president Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif. The railways minister announced to replace the stairs with lift and escalators at Lahore Railways Station.
