Awami Muslim League Chief Sheikh Rasheed condemned the action of the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) and vowed to move the court against the sealing of his residence. He also claimed that he, ll break the seal of Lal Haveli with his hands.
Earlier on 26th January 2023, it was reported that the Evacuee Trust Properties Board (ETPB) made a plan to vacate Lal Haveli, the residence of Sheikh Rasheed, within 24 hours.
Now latest reports are that Sheikh Rashid moves LHC against Lal Haveli sealing by the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB).
Remember that Lal Haveli which is situated in Raja Bazar Rawalpindi belonged to a Hindu woman prior to partition and was converted into Sheikh Rasheed’s political office in 1980 after he entered parliamentary politics.
