LAHORE: Former interior minister and senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Monday said the ruling party should focus on the threats facing Pakistan, ARY News reported.
“It is the time that the PML-N should come out of the state of indecisiveness now. We should rise above the personal interests and focus on the national interests and party, otherwise the party would also be affected along the individuals,” he said talking to mediapersons here in Punjab House.
He said he had suggested not to make speech on Panama Leaks issue because we ourselves had suggested to move court on this issue and if we had any issue from court verdict, we could approach another bench of the court.
We needed to mull over collective issues and if we kept concentrating on personal matters, we would be doomed, he said adding that the PML-N had become a party based on personal interests.
“We ought not to have written letter to the Supreme Court for commission,” he said.
The ex-interior minister said the prime minister should not have talked about a technocrat government setup either.
He said the general elections 2018 should not be postponed, or else this would inflict severe damage.
“I can foresee worse circumstances for Pakistan than in 1970. Pakistan is currently facing threats from several countries, some of them are pretty known while the others are lying in wait for the right time.
“We were not let fathom the incident of 1970. Work is not being done on dealing with threats and everybody is busy in performing routine tasks,” he warned.
Nisar said for the first time a statement was given on US President Donald Trump’s policy which made the national front in which institutions, parliament and masses stood united.
