LAHORE: Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said on Saturday that he advised Prime Minister Imran Khan to let corrupt politicians leave Pakistan, but he did not agree.
“The opposition can end in one hour if Imran Khan lets them leave the country. I have told Imran Khan to let them go but he said no,” Ahmed said during a news conference.
The minister added that all corrupt politicians were getting together to protest against the government.
The minister’s comments come as former president and PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari met with JUI-F Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Friday to discuss a joint strategy against the government. The two leaders had a consensus on uniting opposition parties and continue reaching out to other political parties.
