ATTOCK: Former interior minister Ch. Nisar Ali Khan has once again asked the deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif not to clash with state institutions.

“It is a part of our oath not to criticize the institutions,” Nisar maintained. He further stated that confrontations between the institutions would not be in the favor of country, democracy and for Nawaz himself.

“I would like to believe that the courts are deciding on the facts of the case presented before them,” he added.

Nisar rejected Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif’s proposal about working with US against Haqqani network. Nisar said that letting another country conduct military operations on Pak soil would be demeaning particularly when it boasts of having world’s 5th largest military.

Moreover, he emphasized PM and ministers to work for the betterment of their country rather working for their personal political motives

“If the prime minister or the ministers invest their time in putting their house in order rather than politicking it would be a win-win situation for all,” he added.
