Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) had been pursuing a policy of “Muk Muka” (collusion).
Referring to Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan’s Thursday statement, Khan tweeted: “Truth is finally out on PMLN-PPP Muk Muka which PTI pointed out repeatedly.”
The PTI chairman also questioned the price (favours) paid by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to the friendly opposition – PPP.
Addressing a press conference on Thursday, Interior Minister Nisar had “confirmed” the stance of PTI that the PPP had an underhand deal with the PML-N government.
“I confirm that PPP leader Syed Khursheed Shah as Leader of the Opposition had been getting benefits from the present government,” he said, assuring media persons that he would reveal the details later.
NISAR’S COMMENTS SHAH-SPECIFIC:
Meanwhile, an Interior Ministry spokesperson on Friday rejected the impression created by some news reports appearing in a section of media regarding Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan confirming ‘some kind of deal between the government and the opposition’ during his press conference on Thursday.
The spokesman said that nowhere in his press conference had the interior minister referred to collusion between the government and opposition. Terming this perception as inaccurate and totally out of context, the spokesman said that Nisar had criticized National Assembly Opposition Leader Khurshid Shah for making illogical allegations against the government even though he was getting favours from it.
The spokesman said that the minister’s remarks were made in response to a specific question wherein he was asked to comment over the baseless accusations that are being leveled against him by the opposition leader. He said that the interior minister was very specific in his remarks and only referred to the person against whom the comments were being solicited.
