Nawaz showing enmity, not me: Chaudhry Nisar


ISLAMABAD: Former Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar on Sunday said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader Nawaz Sharif has been showing enmity, not him.

The disgruntled PML-N leader was speaking to a local news outlet, where he alleged that PML-N gave tickets to “those who verbally abused Nawaz”.

Nisar said that PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif said to him before going to London that the party ticket issue was resolved.

He further said that now he has taken a separate path from the PML-N and there is no going back.

Nisar said that he only asked the party leadership to not go into confrontation with the judiciary and army.

“When did I speak against the party? When did I not stand with the PML-N?” said the disgruntled PML-N leader.

While addressing a rally in Chakri on Saturday, Nisar decried “disloyalty” of Nawaz. He claimed that despite having supported him for 34 years, the PML-N leader forgot him.

During a recent interview, Shehbaz also admitted his disassociation with Nisar for the first time.

The former Punjab chief minister said that he had a friendly relation with Nisar, however, regretted that the two of them have dissociated with each other.

Nisar will be contesting from constituencies NA-63, NA-59, PP-10 and PP-12 in the forthcoming polls as an independent candidate.

He has been allotted the symbol of a ‘jeep’ for the upcoming general election.
