RAWALPINDI - Federal Minister for Pakistan Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Wednesday said that government had not faced defeat regarding the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) issue but it was the opposition which had been exposed.

Talking to media persons after inaugurating new building of the women’s college in Rawalpindi, he said reality of the opposition was that even Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) President Fazlur Rehman did not have trust in it.

“Fazlur Rehman asked some pinching questions from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif and expressed lack of confidence in him during yesterday’s meeting. The only demand of the opposition is to dissolve the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

“I am standing with the cabinet’s decision of extradition of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif but I do not think he will return as there is no such contract between Pakistan and England. Prime Minister Imran Khan achieves everything which he attempts.”
