ISLAMABAD: Former Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan responded to the recent remarks by Pakistan Muslim League(Nawaz) President Shehbaz Sharif, who termed the former as a ‘child’ who needs to be dealt like it.
On Thursday, Nisar expressed wonder over Punjab’s Chief Minister, saying that he is really surprised to see the latter can’t differentiate between a mature and childish act.
Furthermore, he stated the PML(N) leadership is exhibiting childish attitude in their conduct.
Nisar who has seemingly parted way with PML(N) supreme leader Nawaz Sharif, has requested his younger brother Shehbaz for not revealing things happened 30 years ago.
Shehbaz sharif has somehow managed to secure Nisar in the PML(N) ranks amid reports that the latter is considering to lead a defection from PML(N) in a bid to join other party.
Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday said disgruntled Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Chaudhry Nisar was former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s friend and not his.
“Nisar was Mian Sahab’s friend and my foe,” the PML-N president said while speaking to media after an inaugural ceremony at District Headquarters Hospital in Rajanpur.
“I am talking about 1988,” he clarified.
Further speaking about his and Nisar’s relationship back in the day, Shehbaz said, “He used to constantly complain about me to Mian Sb.”
If I have ever been scolded by Mian Sb, it is because of Nisar, he added.
The Punjab chief minister further said, “Our relationship was bitter for some time and then eventually we became friends.”
Stating that Nisar is ‘immature’, Shehbaz shared, “He needs to be dealt with like a child and we keep trying to pacify him and resolve any issues.”
When asked if he will succeed in convincing Nisar to put his differences aside this time around, the Punjab chief minister answered, “God willingly.”
