Disheartened Sheikh Rashid vows to stand by Imran Khan


RAWALPINDI (INP): Veteran politician, former interior minister and Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid against whom the PTI unexpectedly fielded a candidate from a Rawalpindi constituency on Saturday said he was a man of principles and would remain loyal to PTI founding chairman Imran Khan.

In a video statement, Sheikh Rashid categorically said that he would prefer death to dumping Imran.

He further said that never ever in his life had he endured the hardships he was made to go through during the last seven months. “I remained in hiding so that I don’t have to record my statement against one person and his family under section 164,” he said, adding, “My residence was vandalized, each and every member of my family was victimized. But I did not budge from my principled position even by an inch, and I still have the same stance.” “Let me make it clear to the nation that I stand vindicated,” Rasheed said, adding, “I have not surrendered.’

He went on to say he was hopeful that he would win the election from NA-56, Rawalpindi on February 8.

AML chief grumbled that the PTI gave tickets to those who came from overseas in the dead of night. “But I appeal to my electorate to support me in the election,” he concluded.
