“I don’t think Pervez Musharraf was a traitor rather he was a patriot,” said Sheikh Rasheed, adding that “ Para 66 in the judgement is unconstitutional and unlawful, and so the judgement,” said the federal minister.

His focus was more on the political stunting rather than sharing his personal work as a federal minister.

He said judiciary and army both are important pillars of the state and there is no chance of clash between both institutions.

“Shehbaz Sharif is playing double game and he did not utter a single word against Musharraf and took his brother Nawaz Sharif to London,” he further said. “A good new is expected soon for Shehbaz Sharif and he is enjoying there in London,”.

“Khursheed Shah got 126 bank accounts opened but he was granted bail,” said Sheikh Rasheed. PPP wanted to get all cases shifted to Sindh and Bilawal was also involved in corruption with his father Asif Ali Zardari.

There transaction of Rs 1. 5 billion also carried signature of Bilawal Zardari. “Bilawal’s fate will be like that of Maryam’s if he did not come to plea bargain,” warned Rasheed—who is considered very close to “power corridors”.

“There is space for PPP in Punjab,” he added.
