ISLAMABAD: Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique said on Sunday that politicians were being unjustly targeted. “Can a chief justice or the army chief never be wrong?” Rafique asked people while addressing a ceremony held to launch a book written by Javed Hashmi.

“Why is it that it is always the PM who is at fault?” Rafique asked, adding that the country would get weaker if its political parties were weak.

The minister said that the “army should stay away from politics and controversies” and that there was a huge difference between the army’s professional and political roles. “There will be no compromise on the supremacy of Constitution,” he added.

“We do not want for a truck to arrive and take away everyone including Imran Khan,” he said, adding that “democracy was yet to become fully functional in the country”.

“After the lawyer’s movement, we thought that the courts will be free, but the doctrine of necessity is still alive. We will not accept if only a few people keep deciding the fate of this country,” he said.

Rafique said that engineered political parties, like Mustafa Kamal-led Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP), had no future in the country. “People from MQM should have been allowed to take their own decisions.”
