Chaudhry Nisar to hold key press conference today
ISLAMABAD: Disgruntled former interior minister and Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) stalwart Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan is to hold an important press conference today (Sunday) at Punjab House here, ARY News reported.
The senior PML-N politician, in his presser at 5:00 pm on Sunday, is expected to make a response over former information minister Pervaiz Rasheed’s recent statement.
Earlier, Nisar’s spokesperson reacted upon fellow party leader Pervaiz Rasheed’s statement about ‘Dawn Leaks Scandal’ as he implied decisions coming against the ruling party in its own term due to an impotent ‘Interior Minister’.
Nisar’s spokesman, in a statement, said that if Pervaiz Rasheed was innocent then he should have asked his government to make the Dawn Leaks inquiry report public.
In an interview to a private TV channel, former information minister Pervaiz Rasheed, who was deposed over the Dawn Leaks scandal, had said that some of the major decisions during PML-N’s term in power came against the party despite having its own interior ministry, while enumerating Dawn Leaks Scandal, WhatsApp messages scandal with regard to formation of Panamagate JIT.
Nisar, who was interior minister during all these developments, said that his fellow party leader should come clear on what sort of help he needed from his ministry, adding that only one member out of the whole Dawn Leaks inquiry committee was under the interior ministry.
It merits to mention here that the senior PML-N leader has recently developed differences with party’s supremo and ex-PM Nawaz Sharif over Panama probe.
