RAWALPINDI: Federal Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique said on Wednesday that he does not take ‘political joker’ Sheikh Rasheed seriously.
Addressing a press conference, Rafique said in response to a question that conspiracies by political and non-political forces, wherein an elected prime minister is removed in such a controversial way, creates an uncertain political situation which has a negative effect on the economy.
He remarked that those blinded in their quest for political victimisation are responsible for halting the country’s economic progress.
“We weren’t allowed to work thanks to the dharna [sit-in] and other conspiracies,” said Rafique, adding that if this continues investments will be taken out of Pakistan.
Earlier, the minister informed that the Khyber Mail will be upgraded in around March next year.
He also shared that 11 new railway stations are being established in the country, adding that the Pakistan Railways has witnessed a 10 per cent increase in its profits.
