ISLAMABAD: The interior ministry spokesman on Wednesday said that Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has sought an explanation for being excluded from the consultative meetings of the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N).
The spokesman denied media reports that Nisar was displeased with the party leadership and efforts are being made to convince him.
The statement came hours after Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif met him at the Punjab House to prevent him from holding a press conference to address party matters.
The spokesman said the truth is that the interior minister had adopted a contrary position on some important matters in the party’s internal meetings, after which he was excluded from the consultative process.
Therefore, the spokesperson said the interior minister is seeking an explanation about the attitude by the party, and whether he was excluded due to his stance or some other reason.
He said that unless a clarification is provided, it will be difficult to resolve problems in a positive manner.
