Some political jokers are misleading people: Kh Saad Rafique


Railways Minister, Khawaja Saad Rafique, Monday said some political and non-political “jokers” were misleading the people by telling lies about their opponents.

“Those so-called politicians are living in fool’s paradise who wanted to harm the present government through illegal and unnatural way,” he added while addressing a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) convention in Haripur.

He said Supreme Court cleared the PML-N in the case of alleged rigging in election 2013, and now in Panama Papers case, Imran Khan—who was fighting the case without having any solid evidence—would also face a humiliating defeat.

Saad Rafique said the people of the country had completely rejected the politics of sit-ins and they believed only in the power of the vote.

“Imran Khan’s politics is alive only due to the PML-N government, as we allowed PTI to constitute government in KP despite the fact the party did not have enough seats to make the government,” he said.

He suggested the PTI work for people of KP instead of levelling baseless allegation against its opponents.

Senator Pervez Rasheed said Shehbaz Sharif was a hardworking chiefmMinister who was working day and night for the development of the province, whereas the KP chief minister was doing nothing for the province.
