PML-N not holding talks with govt over interim setup: Nisar

Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan denied on Wednesday that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has been holding talks with the government on interim setup.
Talking to media after the assembly session on Wednesday, Nisar said that his party would not support the commission on new provinces. Rejecting the current body by calling it “Zardari’s commission, Nisar said the government should constitute a new commission on the basis of Punjab Assembly resolution. “Asif Zardari is using the issue of new provinces for political interests,” Nisar added.
The opposition leader said that the government had not taken up the issue for the last four years. “There were constitutional amendments passed by this parliament, but the government did not take up the issue during those amendments,” he said. He questioned the credibility of the members of the commission, and he said that the presidential spokesman was the commission’s chairman. He said the PML-N supports the idea of new provinces but “it is a very sensitive issue which needs to be dealt with properly.”
Nisar further said that the PML-N would not hold talks with the government over interim setup in the country. He said the PML-N was already negotiating with other opposition parties for interim government. “If the government tries to use delaying tactics or tries to stop the general election in the country, then the PML-N will strongly resist this move,” he said. Answering a question, he repeated his previous claim that President Asif Ali Zardari had been distributing the government’s money among specific media groups in exchange for loyalty.
