Awami Muslim League chief Shiekh Rashid predicted on Sunday that former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar will win the next elections as an independent candidate.
Speaking to the media in Rawalpindi, Rashid said his party was contesting elections against a group of accused illegally occupying land and dealing drugs.
“No one can bribe the people of Rawalpindi. I will be visiting NA-60 and NA-62 as part of the election campaign,” he told reporters.
He added that the nation should head toward elections irrespective of the situation at hand.
“We were the first to protest against the dictators. We are also responsible for sending Nawaz Sharif packing,” the AML chief boasted, in an apparent reference to his aggressive pursuit of the Panama case in superior courts.
Talking about his alliance with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf for the elections, Rasheed was of the opinion that the bottle of ink and the bat— election symbols for the two parties— would come out on top after the ballot.
