‘We don’t want revenge on cheap people’: Sheikh Rasheed
Former interior minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed has said that the PTI and its allies don’t want to take revenge on “cheap people” after the party has claimed the majority in the Punjab by-election. Instead, they ought to steer clear of arrogance and stay humble, he said.
Taking to Twitter, Rasheed said that they should be grateful towards Allah for giving such a great victory and honour to Imran Khan. He also praised the institutions for laying the “foundation” of free and fair elections.
The politician also announced that he will hold a press conference at his residence at 1pm.
“We should thank Allah who gave Imran Khan so much honour and success. The institutions laid the foundation for an impartial, clean and transparent election. We don’t want revenge on cheap people but steer clear of arrogance and pride and stay humble. I will hold a press conference at my residence at 1 pm,” Rasheed wrote.
According to the unofficial final count received by Election Commission of Pakistan from Sunday’s polls, the PTI won 15 seats, while the PML-N managed to clinch victory in only four, and an independent candidate grabbed one.
