If Nawaz Sharif wants to return, I will grant visa within 24 hours, pay for ticket: Sheikh Rasheed

KARACHI: Minister for Interior Sheikh Rasheed on Sunday said that if PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif wants to return to Pakistan, he will issue a “visa” to him within 24 hours and will also “pay for his air ticket”.

After the rumors began to spread, Rashid announced that Nawaz might return to Pakistan before the next general election.

The Minister of the Interior said at a press conference in Karachi that Nawaz had left the country for medical reasons but had “never seen a doctor” after arriving in the UK.

Answering a question related to the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif, Rasheed said: “Your threats will not affect us in any way; you should look at your own conduct. No one else has been as corrupt as you, so you cannot hold us accountable for anything.”

Rasheed went on to say that both, the Sharif and Zardari families, are “corrupt”, so Prime Minister Imran Khan will continue to fight against their corruption “till his last breath”. 

The interior minister was also questioned about the founder of MQM Altaf Hussain, and in response, he said that he has known him since his days as a student.

“We cannot talk to him (Altaf) anymore because he has too many murder cases registered against his name,” the minister said. “On the other hand, we have had a good relationship with MQM-Pakistan and will continue to do so.”

He reiterated that although the opposition party launched a radical campaign to overthrow the government led by PTI, Prime Minister Imran Khan will not go anywhere. He added that the government has a good relationship with the establishment.
