Nisar had criticized Ahsan on Thursday, alleging the senator was member of land mafia group in the country, an allegation that was widely condemned by the Pakistan People’s Party and Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah.
Zardari, who is also co-chairman of the PPP, condemned the remarks of Nisar and demanded him to apologize.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif also apologized in the joint session of the parliament today on remarks of Nisar. He said it was unfortunate that such remarks were made and hurt the opposition side.
The PM also urged the opposition leader and Aitzaz to shun the differences and move forward to focus on the core issue – protests in Islamabad.
