Sheikh Rashid fears 'civil disobedience' movement amid protests over electricity bills

Sheikh Rashid bashes govt over fuel hike


RAWALPINDI: Awami Muslim League Pakistan (AMLP) leader Sheikh Rashid on Thursday bashed the Shehbaz Sharif-led government over the fuel hike for the third time in last 20 days.

The former interior minister called the fuel price hike an “injection to the people”. He said the looters government has raised petrol prices by Rs 24 and diesel by Rs 60.

Rashid said that the government is trying to eliminate cases on them and making false cases of terrorism on opponents. He added that people are eyeing the Supreme Court while he said that if the decision is to be made on roads, then anything can happen in next 45 days.

He further said that to bring  Sheen  instead of  Noon  was the real master plan. “PML-N is just for TV shows,” he added.

Sheikh Rashid said he could go to the Supreme Court under the current circumstances. He added that Asif Zardari was setting a diplomatic agenda and taking control of the National Assembly with an “incompetent government”. He said the budget of the Punjab assembly was passed with the help of defected marine reserves. He said the country looks forward to making a major decision on this economic damage.
