Sheikh Rasheed’s inconspicuous presence at Imran’s oath-taking

ISLAMABAD:  Awami Muslim League (AML) Chairman Shiekh Rasheed Ahmad kept a low profile in the oath-taking ceremony of Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday.

According to reports, he arrived late to the ceremony.

The firebrand politicians supported the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman during its protests against the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N)  government.

Earlier, it was reported that he has skipped the oath taking of the prime minister.

Regarded as one of the confidantes of Imran Khan, analysts said he was not expected to miss an event that saw his friend took the reins of the nuclear-armed nation.

The analysts wondered whether he has developed differences with the prime minister. It was earlier speculated that Sheikh Rasheed would be given the portfolio of railways minister.

Media reports also suggested that Sheikh of Lal Haweli wanted Khan to give him the interior ministry.
