RAWALPINDI: Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad has said the government should not resort to Supreme Court (SC) against Nawaz Sharif’s decision. “Government should not approach SC against Lahore High Court (LHC) decision on allowing Nawaz Sharif to go abroad. A man is sick. Allow him to go abroad and no politics should be played on it. Lest film should run reverse,” he said this while addressing a ceremony here Monday.

Responding to a question about reshuffling in cabinet and removal of the governor from his post, he refused to have any information on this matter.

“I admit there is inflation and unemployment in the country and it lacks good governance. Prime Minister Imran Khan is working to rein in them. If he works, he will earn respect,” he remarked.

He said that 38 kilometres out of 43 kilometer track of Karachi Circular Railway has been got vacated. Over 10,000 homes have been constructed on the remaining five kilometres. The Sindh government should work for it and we are ready to provide this project to Sindh government. About accidents, he said there are negligence and lapses of railway staff behind these accidents. This eliminated my achievements.

About Asif Zardari’s departure to foreign country, he said this is case of five persons. “I say with full responsibility all except Khursheed Shah are on plea bargain.”

Earlier addressing the ceremony he said Rawalpindi would be the first city of Pakistan which would have four universities. A mother and child health care state-of-the-art hospital with 14 operation theatres will be constructed in 200 kanal area at Khayaban-e-Sir Syed Chowk Rawalpindi, he indicated.

The railway university is being built with the assistance of China and China will provide funds for it, he said adding land will be provided by railway department and Chinese language will be given importance in this university.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad was shifted to the Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology after suffering from chest pain.
