ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan is scheduled to address a Presser at 5pm on Sunday July 23 here.
Will Chaudhry Nisar announce his decision to leave PML (N) and abandon Sharifs (after 35 years of alliance) before the SC announces its verdict apropos Panamagate?
The glaring absence of Chaudhry Sahib from PML (N)’s meeting, with PM Sharif in the chair, yesterday (21st July, 2017) insinuates that the rats have started leaving the sinking ship.
Chaudhry Nisar is supposed to say that he had been sidelined and his counsel has not been taken seriously by the PM. Nisar has already said that he would not form a forward block so will he join PTI?
It is pertinent to mention here that Nisar was not happy over the JIT report and has not talked to the PM ever since it surfaced. It is also said he has always been willing to support the PML N but not the children of the PM.
Sources have reported that in order to ask Nisar to cancel his plan to announce end of association with PM at Sunday Presser, Saad Rafiq, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Rana Tanvir Hussain had meetings with him.
Moreover, Nisar is a good friend of Shahbaz Sharif and whenever he had tendered resignations (thrice so far) it was Shahbaz Sharif who had brought him back to the folds of the Party.
Will the rats be persuaded to stick to the sinking ship?
