Rawalpindi (June 18, 2018): Former Interior Minister and estranged PML-N leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said that he neither took any opportunity nor set up any industry after coming into power.
While addressing a public meeting in Chakri, Chaudhry Nisar said that he wanted to bring to the fore the role of former prime minister and party Quaid Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz, but now was not the time due to Begum Kulsoom’s critical illness.

Nisar said he has carried the burden of Nawaz for the past 34 years. “Nawaz and his family are indebted to me. I do not owe [them] anything,” he said.
The former interior minister recalled that at the time the PML-N was formed, there were only 15 or 20 members. “Nawaz was not [very] senior or eligible,” he said, adding that one of the members had to be made the leader and it was decided that Nawaz would lead the party.“None of those [15, 20 members] is part of PML-N now. Nawaz either ousted them, or they left the party.”
Nisar said it was possible that he may part ways with Nawaz. He added that he has never compromised on his principles, nor has he ever sold his conscience.
“I am answerable to Allah, the public and Nawaz,” he said. “My opponents should know that I am not alone.”
