Hang the corrupt to save democracy: Sheikh Rashid


LAHORE Dec 9 (TNS): Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief Sheikh Rashid on Saturday said that country’s political situation is getting worse day-by-day and that the democracy can only be saved by hanging corrupt people.

Addressing All Parties Conference (APC) at Lahore High Court (LHC), Sheikh Rashid said that we all have to protect the constitution for the development of Pakistan. He said no ministry is properly working in Islamabad.

Those who robbed democracy were made its champions, he added. Talking about the Panama Leaks case against Sharif family, the leader stated that Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) had saved the country by disqualifying ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

He said that in Pakistan, people are getting gas in summers and electricity in winters and that 60 percent of the youth is struggling for employment.

Sheikh Rashid alleged that those who supported Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto are now ministers in ex-president Pervez Musharraf’s party, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). Loans worth billions of dollars have been taken in four years, he revealed.
