Corruption is a serious crime and anyone involved in the practice should not be spared, the Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has said, adding that, in my opinion, none of the ministers of ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is involved in corruption.
According to media reports, the Railway Minister stated this while addressing a press conference in Lahore on Saturday. He said that if National Accountability Bureau (NAB) summons someone, it does not mean that the person should be removed from the office.
Shiekh Rashid said, “I had predicted earlier that NAB will summon politicians from both side after the Eid.”
The minister also announced that Railway will start operating 10 more trains from August 16.
Talking about ML-1, Sheikh Rashid said that the project, which has been declared a ‘strategical project’ by China, will be Asia’s first with automatic signal system.
The Federal Minister expressed his desire regarding inauguration of the ML-1 project by Chinese President and added that the project will be very beneficial for the economy.
