Sheikh Rashid suggests Maryam fix issues with husband before politicking

Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmad on Saturday took an aim at PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz when he advised her to fix issues with her husband, retired Capt Safdar, before engaging in political activities.

The former interior minister apparently referred to a reported tension between Mr Safdar and his wife, which came on the scene when the former slammed the PML-N leadership for voting for the extension of ex-Chief of Army Staff (COAS) retired Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa and regretted his comments against PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

Speaking to a private news channel, he also shared his two cents on turncoats, stating that the lawmakers should not change their loyalties for personal benefits. Mr Safdar also commented that he was not seeing Maryam Nawaz as prime minister in near future.

Following his statements, reports claimed that Maryam Nawaz had barred her husband from issuing policy statements.

Sheikh Rashid, in a series of tweets, said: “Maryam should take her husband onboard before addressing workers”. He said the PML-N did not need enemies as it was being damaged by insiders. 

The AML chief said the friendship with China could not be put at stake at the behest of imperialist powers, adding: “Pakistan-China friendship is higher than Himalayas”.

Lashing out at the government for increasing power tariff, he said burden of line losses worth Rs380 billion had been put on poor consumers. “The 88-member cabinet is answerable to whom,” he asked. Mr Ahmad said only President Arif Alvi and the Supreme Court could save Pakistan from the ongoing crises.

PTI founder, Bushra Bibi indicted in 190m pound case

 An accountability court indicted the PTI founder and his wife Bushra Bibi in the ill-famous 190 million pound case – also previously known as Al-Qadir Trust case – as the judge, Nasir Javed Rana, held hearing at the Adiala jail.

All the cases involving the former PTI chairman are being heard at the jail premises – where he is imprisoned – because of the security threats, for which Bushra Bibi was shifted from her Bani Gala residence where she is serving her sentences in two cases – Toshakhana and illegal/un-Islamic marriage.

Meanwhile, her husband has so far been convicted in three cases – cipher, Toshakhana and illegal/un-Islamic marriage.

During the proceedings, the two accused pleaded not guilty, as the judge adjourned proceedings till March 6 while also summoning five witnesses to record their statements on next hearing.

However, the accountability court accepted two pleas filed by the PTI founder, requesting permission for an appointment with his dentist and general physician.

Previously, the indictment had been postponed on several occasions due to the absence of Mohammad Bashir – the accountability court judge who is set to retire on March 14 and has applied for leave preparatory to retirement (LPR).

However, the law ministry last week appointed District and Sessions Judge Rana as an Accountability Court No 1 Islamabad judge to replace Bashir who went on leave on deputation for a period of three years.
