LAHORE : Interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that he had made it clear to aides of former dictator Pervez Musharraf that he would never deceive leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Nawaz Sharif.
Nisar’s reaction came in a day after Musharraf conversed with a private TV analys.
According to report, the minister denied having been offered premiership during the dictator’s tenure. He said that he had made it clear to General Mehmood that he was not going to deceive Nawaz Sharif.
Reportedly, Nisar telephoned the anchorperson today to clear the impression that the programme could have given to the viewers yesterday that he was offered premiership. During the conversation, the minister said that he was paid a visit by General Mehmood in 1999 after Musharraf had toppled Nawaz Sharif’s government.
Before he could begin, Nisar said that he clarified him that he would not deceive Nawaz Sharif, he would not give a statement in favour of the dictator and he would not join any other political group.
Nisar said that the army official asked him if he meant that he would not deceive the toppled premier who had deceived him. However, the interior minister said that he would not be able to live with his conscience if he deceives his leader.
Earlier reports said that finance minister Ishaq Dar convened a long sitting with the federal minister in Punjab House in the federal capital and assured him that his concerns would be addressed by the top leadership at the earliest.
