ISLAMABAD: Awami Muslim League leader Sheikh Rashid Tuesday ruled out the possibility of election alliance between Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan People’s Party.

Speaking to Shahzad Iqbal in Samaa talk-show ‘Awaaz’, the Rawalpindi-based politician said Imran Khan would never form an electoral alliance with Asif Ali Zardari.

Commenting on Shehbaz Sharif’s election as PML-N President, the AML chief said CM Punjab was playing on both sides of the wicket, and that his election would make no difference in the national politics.

Likening Nawaz Sharif to Muttahida Qaumi Movement founder Altaf Hussain, Sheikh Rashid said a ban should also be imposed on the coverage of former PM Nawaz Sharif’s televised speeches.

The veteran politician took a dig at former finance minister Ishaq Dar, who has been reelected as Senator, saying that he did not even come to Pakistan to take oath, ‘which shows how bravery he is’.
