ISLAMABAD: Chairperson of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (G) Ayesha Gulalai has filed a petition in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) seeking disqualification of Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid

In her petition, she has maintained Rashid in a recent statement has tried to promote chaos and hatred in the country thus the ECP should declare him ineligible for holding his seat in the National Assembly.

Gulalai further maintained the railways minister’s statement is a clear violation of the Constitution.

“Neither Islam nor the Constitution of Pakistan allows any citizen to attack any religion or faith,” the PTI-G leader has said in her statement adding such remarks by a national leader jeopardise peace.

While talking to media outside the ECP, Gulalai said the federal minister has given a contentious statement against the Hindu community of the country and ECP could declare him ineligible from holding public office in light of Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution.

“Ministers and advisers of Imran Khan are billionaires and they should stop collecting salaries,” Gulalai maintained, adding the prime minister of New Zealand exhibited great leadership while victims of the Sahiwal tragedy still await justice.
