LAHORE - Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has said Imran Khan’s Raiwind protest will fail as no one on the Opposition side is ready to go with him.

Talking to the media here yesterday, the minister said they would not stop Imran Khan from marching to Raiwind yet the protest on Khan’s part sounds a futile exercise as his party in only in the field and no other in the Opposition, including his cousin (reference to Dr Tahirul Qadri) supported his protest mission.

Answering a question, he said: “Imran Khan this year announced proceeding to Saudi Arabia for Haj which he could not do, perhaps for the reason his visit was not divinely approved or he did some mukmakka with the Satan.”

On Sheikh Rashid of Pakistani Awami League, he said, on the occasion of every Eid this man from Pindi predicts about sacrifice of the government or the ministers but this time round, this person has ended up with purchasing a camel for sacrifice.

The minister said it was fourth year when the PML-N government had completed arrangements.
