ISLAMABAD: Chief of Awami Muslim League (AML) Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Monday said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) would fulfil all promises made with the masses and would come up to their expectations.

Talking to media here at the Parliament House after taking the oath, he said the people reposed confidence in the leadership of PTI in the general elections and they have more expectation from the new government.

Sheikh Rashid said the government would take the opposition on board and the process of democracy would be carried forward. All the state institutions would be strengthened and improvement would be brought in the institutions.

He said that he had predicted the PTI would win over 100 seats in the general elections but some politicians made it fun. “My prediction has proved and now the PTI is going to form the government with the support of allied parties,” he added.

Sheikh Rashid said he was very much grateful to the people of Rawalpindi for voting him. He assured that he would become voice of the voiceless people of Pindi and would continue his struggle for their welfare and betterment.

To a query, he said the Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz could not go side by side as they have different ideologies.

People have rejected the politics of Maulana Fazalur Rehman and he (Maulana) always used Islam for his own benefits, I will present Independence Day greetings to Maulana Fazal although such people had opposed the creation of Pakistan, he stated.

A grand celebration programme, followed by dinner has been chalked out to celebrate the Independence Day at Lal Haveli at night, Sheikh Rasheed told.

Sheikh Rashid said he would do whatsoever duty assigned to him by Imran Khan.
