TAXILA: Former Pakistan Muslim League(Nawaz) stalwart, interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan today claimed that he always wanted to rescue his ex leader Nawaz Sharif from the tribulations the latter went through on Friday.
He was referring to the Avenfield refernce verdict by the Accountability court, which convicted supreme leader of PML(N) Nawaz and sentenced him to 10 years imprisonment for possessing assets beyond known source of income.
Addressing at the political rally in Taxila, Nisar further claimed that he had never sought PML(N) ticket, as Nawaz has committed betrayal against him.
The former minister is contesting elections from NA-63 Taxila, NA-59 Rawalpindi, PP-12 and PP-10 as an independent candidate.
He was allotted the jeep symbol by Election Commission of Pakistan.
