Islamabad, Dec 5 (ANI): Pakistans former Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad has said that former premiers Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif were engaged in dodging politics.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz was under pressure to contest elections, as they have a vote bank, but the leadership was not deciding, Rashid told Geo News.
He said that it gets difficult for the candidates to remain sitting at home, when the election bugle sounds off, The News reported.
Regarding Jamaat-e-Islami, Rashid said that it didnt have vote bank as much, but it was a strong organisation, however they could not win the election under only one umbrella.
He further said that he didnt consider any existence of the APDM, which has only three major parties, while the rest were Tanga (carriage) parties. (ANI)
