The Federal Minister for Pakistan Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Tuesday said that the robbers and thieves in the country have been brought to book.
Speaking after paying his respect at the mausoleum of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, on his 142nd birthday, he lamented unfortunately, thieves became watchmen in Pakistan.
“Thieves, robbers and plunderers have been brought to book,” Sheikh Rasheed said, adding that those who stole money from the pockets of the people of Pakistan were being billed gentry.
He apprehended that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari may bear the brunt of his father Asif Ali Zardari’s politics.
Referring to Nawaz Sharif’s conviction in Al-Azizia reference, Mr Rasheed said he was jailed for seven years in a weapons case, but Sharif was handed mere seven years in jail despite what he said looting the entire world’s wealth.
Sheikh Rasheed also predicted that the “remaining thieves” will go to jail before March 30, adding that Pakistan People’s Party leader and former opposition leader Khursheed Shah’s turn to be held to account will also come.
