Anyone switching political allegiance will have nowhere to go, says Saad Rafique


LAHORE: Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique on Sunday warned that there is no room for anyone who switches political allegiance.

Rafique emphasised the importance of the delimitation of constituencies, highlighting that it will strengthen the democratic system but would not benefit any of the political parties individually.

Speaking to Geo News, the minister while attending the wedding of Minister of Foreign Affairs Khawaja Muhammad Asif’s daughter stated that consensus had been drawn on the new delimitation bill by all parties following a discussion.

Also, present on the occasion were Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Punjab Governor Rafique Rajwana, Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb, State Minister for Interior Talal Chaudhry, Speaker of the National Assembly (NA) Ayaz Sadiq and Minister for Commerce and Textiles Mohammad Pervaiz Malik.

Meanwhile, the state interior minister stated that the PML-N has had to give up nine seats in Punjab after the recent census results.

With regards to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan, Chaudhry claimed that he delivers irresponsible statements and therefore, they should not be given much importance.
