ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah on Friday said that he has filed a reference to disqualify Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid from keeping any public office.

The former Punjab law minister, in a video message on social media, hit out at the Awami Muslim League (AML) chief, saying he was nothing but a fraud, who had damaged the Kashmir cause. “He is a fraud, who has kept himself under wraps … his true identity will be revealed in a medical examination,” he remarked.

Sanaullah said he was sending the disqualification reference against Rashid to the National Assembly speaker so that he can forward it to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). He claimed the railways minister had established a ‘fake’ training camp in the name of Kashmir cause. “In reality, he himself is the real owner of the benami (anonymous) property,” he added.

The PML-N stalwart said that his three-point application highlights Rashid’s alleged betrayal of Kashmiris and their cause, running gambling dens, extorting the masses and illegally establishing properties in the name of his nephews and nieces.

Demanding his disqualification as an MNA, Sanaullah said Sheikh Rashid was a liar and a dishonest person, whose presence undermined sanctity of the parliament.
