ISLAMABAD: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Monday that Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan exercised limited authority during his tenure as interior minister.
Speaking in Geo News’ show, Geo Pakistan, he said that: “Chaudhry Nisar did not enjoy complete authority, and was facing same issues as voiced by Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal.”
Responding to a question related to the strong reservations expressed by Iqbal in a press conference outside court complex, after he was disallowed to enter the premises, the provincial minister said that the common man now knows what state within a state means.
“Registrar, Commissioner Islamabad has authority in the court complex, how can then Rangers take over,” he added.
He said that the entire nation knows now how the situation is going; they now know the hidden forces playing their undue role,” the Pakistan Muslim League-N leader said.
Issuing a rebuttal to Rana Sanaullah’s statement, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan’s spokesperson said: “there is no need for anyone to give statement on the authority exercised by former interior minister, and no one holds right to give their opinion on the matter; the statement added that Chaudhry Nisar had complete control of his ministry.”
