A meeting, currently in progress, between Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali and the premiere Nawaz Sharif is taking place in at the premiere’s Raiwind residence.
This meeting is also being attended by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif. The country’s political situation and the internal matters of the party would be the main agendas of today’s meeting.
The interior minister has been missing from the political scene for about a month, reportedly after developing differences with the PML-N leadership over the party’s attitude and behaviour towards his running of the internal ministry. And, according to some media soruces ,Nisar was unhappy over Finance Minister Ishaq Dar’s interference in his ministry’s affairs. Besides, government’s lack of interest in his new security policy as well as a few unelected advisers of prime minster were also considered as inviting Nisar’s displeasure.
Earlier, Shahbaz Sharif made two futile attempts in persuading Nisar to give up his anti-party’s grudges and misunderstandings.In the third one, he has managed to bring the interior minister to Lahore for meeting the Prime Minister. It was also being conjectured, previously that Nisar would resign from his cabinet minsitry and would set off to abroad.
