Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has said that the Senate elections are being held on March 3. The media has given importance to the Senate elections.
“Those who get their seats sold are destroyed by the same ill practice,” Rashid said, while commenting on the planned March 3 elections.
He added, “no hell will break loose if a party loses one or two votes [in the polls].” He noted that there has been much media hype regarding the Senate elections in March.
The veteran politician advised the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) to review its decisions. “It isn’t easy to stage a sit-in,” he said, adding that, “we hold the experience of staging a sit-in for 126 days.
Sheikh Rashid said that he had talked about feeding sweets to Maulana Fazlur Rehman but now the weather has changed so I will take it back. PDM should also think about its own issues.
The sit-in is very difficult, we have 126 days of sit-in experience,
There is no problem if the long march comes within the ambit of law. Asif Zardari and Bilawal understand my point. The opposition has to accept the word of the PPP in the end.
“There are four political parties at present who want to destabilize the country. Those creating unrest were also against the creation of the country,” the interior minister maintained
