ISLAMABAD: Responding to recent comment made by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said “childish behaviour is what his party leader [Shehbaz Sharif] is showing.”
Responding through a statement on Thursday he expressed his surprise that ‘Shehbaz does not know the difference between childish and mature behaviour.’
He also advised the PML-N president to avoid discussing incidents that happened 30 years ago.
Nisar has to be treated like a child: Shehbaz
Nisar further stressed that Shehbaz’s inability to do anything regarding the behaviour of his party’s leadership could be termed non-serious behaviour.
“Shehbaz should spend his energies to get out of the difficult situation,” Nisar advised.
PML-N senior leader was reacting to an earlier statement made by Shehbaz who said Nisar was ‘immature’. “He needs to be dealt like a child and we keep trying to pacify him and resolve issues,” the Punjab chief minister had said.
Shehbaz, Nisar discuss SC’s ruling
This is the first time that Nisar and Shehbaz have locked horns after trading serious accusations against each other.
It is alleged that Nisar has been ignored in the Parliamentary Board of Punjab and Centre, which is the cause of frustration for the senior PML-N leader who was later criticised by Shehbaz.
Nisar has been associated with the ruling party for over three decades. Besides that he has publicly spoken about his differences with the party following Nawaz’s ouster last July and subsequent public mobilisation campaign.
