Law of jungle prevails in country: Sheikh Rashid

RAWALPINDI Former interior minister and Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid says the law of jungle prevails in the country.

Taking to social media platform X, the veteran politician said all the allies of government would disperse on Aug 10.

“This government would always be remembered in black words,” Rashid said. He added that the government had left behind a sordid history of terrorism and barbarism.

The senior politician said police conducted raids on his and close aides’ residences and took away precious watches, vehicles, mobile phones and cash with them.

“Our children and women are disappeared by police but courts are just silent spectators,” the AML chief said. Our workers are re-arrested in another case moments after getting bail in the previous one, he added.

According to Rashid, police raided the residence of his close friend last night and took away his servant.

“I’ll make a request to the chief of army staff to assign the task to any agency to investigate that how much damage Ishfaq Warraich, Shafqat Faiz and CCPO Rawalpindi have caused to the reputation of state’s institutions,” the former interior minister said.

He was of the view that the election commission could not extend the polls date on its own as per the directions given by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

“The caretaker prime minister would be brought by the powers that be,” Rashid said.
