Islamabad- Chief of Awami Muslim League (AML), Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, claimed today that only army would take a final decision about Pakistan’s role in Saudi-led coalition, against Yemen rebels.

“Anyone who thinks this Assembly can decide about Pakistan’s role in Yemen crisis is a fool. Today’s session is nothing but a formality, a photo session and government’s publicity campaign,” Sheikh Rasheed said while speaking to reporters outside the Parliament House.

He claimed that only army is the decision-maker in the current situation. “The government has no powers, this decision is to be taken by army chief General Raheel Sharif and his corps commanders.”

The AML chief, however, said that any breach of Saudi sovereignty would bring a strong response from Pakistan. “Each and every person from Pakistan will rise to safeguard Saudi Arab.” He criticized PML-N government for its ‘failure’ to curb power crisis. “All power projects of this ineligible government have failed. They have not added a single mega watt to national grid,” he said.

Replying to a question about Imran Khan’s rejoining of assemblies, Sheikh Rashid said he had already advised the PTI Chairman not to boycott or resign from assemblies. “It will be an unwise decision to sacrifice 35 seats of Parliament just for 7 seats,” he said.
