LAHORE: Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid on Saturday said the prime minister removed a minister he could not imagine being asked to go.
Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Rashid said, "Only one minister was kicked out, Asad Umar resigned from his post. I will speak to Asad Umar and ask him to remain a part of the cabinet."
Backing the parliamentary system in the country, the railways minister said we need to take the constitution forward.
He added, after working with so many prime ministers over the years he can safely say that Imran Khan is working hard. “The reason why everything is taking so long is that a captain takes time to set his team,” he said.
“I can see Imran Khan completing his five years in office,” Rashid add
He added that he saw no political future for Pakistan Mulsim League-Nawaz Leaders Nawaz Sharif, Shehbaz Sharif and Pakistan Peoples Party Asif Ali Zardari.
The federal minister further said, railways and China–Pakistan Economic Corridor is the backbone of Pakistan.
“The Main Line One project will provide around one hundred and fifty thousand job opportunities,” he said, adding “After the completion of ML-1 project the travel duration from Lahore to Karachi will be reduced to eight hours.”
