Interior Minister optimistic about support of allied parties on electoral reforms

ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad Monday looked optimistic, saying that the allied parties of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) would support the government on the issue of electoral reforms.

Addressing a ceremony in Police Lines Headquarters in Islamabad, Sheikh Rasheed said the government would tackle the situation effectively when Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) will march towards Islamabad.

We would handle the situation politely if the PDM’s workers do not take the law into their own hands and do not create the law and order situation in the federal capital, he added.

Criticising the PDM, the interior minister urged the Opposition alliance not to lose patience.

Underscoring the need for recruiting educated youths in the police force, he said that the crime rate was increasing in the country due to the worsening economic situation. He said the country was facing internal threats.

It is pertinent to mention that a joint sitting of the parliament was postponed last week after PTI coalition partners expressed reservations on the bills to be tabled in the session.
