Bilawal yet to learn about politics: Ch Nisar


KALLAR SYEDAN: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Saturday hit back at Bilawal Bhutto Zardari saying the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairperson is yet to learn politics.


Responding to Bilawal’s comment that he “failed in his attempt to become PM” during Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s absence, Nisar said, “Bilawal might have grown up, but he has still not learnt anything about politics.”

The cabinet is working efficiently while Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is away for his treatment, Nisar said while addressing the media in Kallar Syedan.

Nisar gave examples of parliamentary systems in Britain, as well as India, stating that, “Nowhere in the world can someone replace the prime minister or take over in his absence.”

On Thursday, Bilawal said Nisar has failed in his plan to become prime minister of the country. “Chaudhry Nisar’s campaign to become PM is not going as well as planned and he is getting frustrated,” Bilawal said in a message posted on micro-blogging website Twitter.

The PPP chairman further said it was inappropriate to take advantage of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s illness in such a way. “Poor form taking advantage of PM’s illness like this.”

Bilawal’s remarks coincided with PM Nawaz’s successful open heart surgery in London where he is likely to remain hospitalised for a whole week after the procedure. The premier has travelled to London for medical treatment several times over the past year and was accompanied on this trip by his brother, Shahbaz Sharif, who is chief minister of Punjab, and several other family members.
