ISLAMABAD: Former interior minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Friday said he would explain in next few days as to why didn’t he take any post in the current federal cabinet.
Addressing a rally in Rawat, the former interior minister said he felt himself blessed seeing so many people to his back. “Neither did I send a vehicle, nor invited them, yet a large number of people showed up at the rally.”
He reiterated his support for former prime minister saying that Nawaz Sharif could be removed as premier, but his place as a leader cannot be taken away.
“These days politics in Pakistan has become really difficult. There’s mud-slinging, no differentiation in right and wrong,” Nisar said.
“People should decide whenever PML-N comes in power; new roads and motorways are built in the country. New paths were opened for development in the entire country over the past four years.”
Nisar had declined to take any post in the new federal cabinet, which was sworn in on Friday following disqualification of Nawaz Sharif by the Supreme Court and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s election as the new premier.
