ISLAMABAD: Estranged Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) stalwart Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan is set to further embarrass his party leaders at a press conference today (Sunday), where he is expected to spill the beans on critical national issues and matters associated with his role as the country’s interior minister.
His spokesperson’s announcement that the former interior minister would address a presser at Islamabad’s Punjab House on Sunday came the same day newspapers reported a spat between former information minister Pervaiz Rashid and the erstwhile senior minister.
Mr Rashid had indirectly criticised Chaudhry Nisar for not supporting the party during the recent Panamagate crisis, while the latter hit back with the assertion that “some people” wanted to blame their mistakes and blunders “on the ministry of interior and the establishment”. The announcement also came hours after Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif reportedly asked party leaders to refrain from attacking state institutions in their speeches.
Though the spokesperson did not specify what issues the former minister would speak on, political observers and PML-N leaders believe that the politician from Chakri will respond to the criticism from Pervaiz Rashid.
