Exacerbating the situation will weaken democracy, says Sheikh Rasheed

“Matters [relating to the political struggle between the government and the opposition] should not be pushed further,” said Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed.

Rasheed’s remark comes as the country’s political temperature increases ahead of a vote on the Opposition’s no-confidence motion to unseat Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Rasheed told journalists that the Opposition will “lose against the government in the ongoing political struggle” on March 21.
