The Interior Ministry has issued a rebuttal, saying media reports of Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan's resignation is baseless.

“Circulation of such news without revealing sources is incorrect,” an interior ministry spokesperson said in a statement on Friday evening. He requested media organisations not to circulate rumours regarding the resignation.

Nisar rebuts fellow minister’s remarks

According to Express News, Chaudhry Nisar will hold a press conference on Sunday at 5pm at Punjab House in which he will clear his position in the wake of current political crisis emerged after the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), probing alleged overseas assets owned by the Sharif family, submitted its report to the Supreme Court.

However, the spokesperson went on to say that the subject of interior minster’s upcoming press conference will be revealed on Sunday.

The interior minister expressed annoyance with the media for running ‘incorrect’ news stories that he had exchanged harsh words with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif during July 13 cabinet meeting.

Parvez Gondal MD | 3 years ago | Reply | Recommend When I was in high school, I saw how people in Pakistan got rid of Ayoob Khan and people need to do the same to Sharif Family. I cannot believe that the entire family is like a Mafia sucking up poor people's blood. And they dont even feel embarrassed. Amazing. How can Nawaz go to pilgrim and act like a good Muslim ? He should look in the mirror and ask himself how he feels by cheating the poorest people on this earth and how he would answer to GOD after he passes away. SHAME SHAME SHAME
