Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, Chaudhry Nisar said that whatever was said against him at the floor of the House, there is no example of it. He said that he reserves the right of responding to the criticism on him and his late brother.
Nisar said his self-respect was hurt, while he is much aggrieved over the remarks of Aitzaz Ahsan about his late brother. He added that he remained in great pain during the last 30 hours, but still decided to forgive everything for the future of democracy and country eventually.
“It was difficult for me to decide between my self-respect and the future of the country”, said the Interior Minister.
Nisar said that his party has been trying to persuade him for defusing the situation, while some of the members suggested that reserve your right of replying for some other time.
To which, he claimed to respond that it will be hypocrisy, adding, “When I have forgiven, I have done so for now and onwards”.
Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan however, urged for setting a tradition that personal conflicts should not be brought at the floor of the assembly.
He said, “I had offered my resignation and requested the PM to let me reply in personal capacity. To which the PM and other party members denied saying that you cannot be regarded apart from the PMLN and asked me to refrain, while I also received several messages from all over the country urging to be patient”.
The Interior Minister said realizing this, he decided to keep aside his personal sentiments and to act according to what was being requested by everyone.
He said, “I am the only parliamentarian who was elected eight times consecutively, who was elected as an MNA for continuously six times and was made the Leader of the Opposition in the seventh spell”.
Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said that the people bestowed him with enough respect, yet his late brother had earned respect more than him and he was aggrieved over the remarks about his brother.
Moreover, he urged for the formation of a commission to investigate the allegations against and vowed to quit politics, if a single allegation is proven.
