Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique has on Monday said while talking to Dunya News that there is no need for Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal to resign.
Railways minister remarked that some people are trying to engage us, but we will not indulge in any dispute and solve the matter peacefully. It is shameful that the interior minister was not allowed to enter the accountability court, he maintained.
Let it be known that Ahsan Iqbal was earlier barred from entering the court by Rangers, and he expressed his resentment while talking to media afterward and said he cannot be a puppet minister. Iqbal also threatened to resign if he is not allowed to exercise his official powers.
All of this happened when former prime minister Nawaz Sharif appeared before the accountability court for the second time today in connection with three references filed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against the Sharif family.
