The Nation  |  Aug 02, 2021

Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid on Monday has announced to observe two years of scrapping special status of Occupied Kashmir on August 5 as ‘Youm-e-Istehsal’ across Pakistan.

Talking to media, the minister said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is fighting the war of reconciliation and resistance. All the narratives of PML-N have gone wasted, he added.

Sheikh Rashid said that the power-hungry opposition leaders are not getting desired appreciation from the nation. PML-N is getting affected due to its own ineffective policies, he stated. 

Earlier, Sheikh Rashid said complete lockdown in Sindh will be damaging. Provincial government should emulate Prime Minister Imran Khan’s policy of smart lockdown which has also got worldwide recognition, he added.

The Interior Minister said some forces are involved in conspiracies to undermine the CPEC and Pakistan-China relations.

He, however, said these elements will not succeed in their evil designs as Pak-China relationship is higher than the Himalayas.
