RAW can target prominent politicians of the country: Sheikh Rashid

Statesman Report

LAHORE: Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid on Saturday said India's Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) can attempt to target prominent politicians in the country.

The statement by the federal minister came soon after the country's foreign minister and military spokesperson presented irrefutable evidence of New Delhi's involvement in terror activities in Pakistan.

He added that India wants to weaken the country internally and does not want the Chine-Pakistan Economic Corridor to succeed and since it cannot harm the country's forces on the border, New Delhi will resort to staging terrorist activities in the country. Referring to recent statements by PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, Rashid said the statements have left Nawaz and Shehbaz 'politically paralysed'. On Maryam, he said she was using the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) platform to speak as a 'last resort'.

Rashid had claimed a day earlier that the PML-N was in 'reverse gear' as they were attempting to conduct dialogue with the 'establishment' and had changed their earlier stance.
