ISLAMABAD - “I called him* yaar* (friend) and also advised him. I said, Imran, you wish to bring change with these people? people who could not stay loyal either to Benazir Bhutto, Chaudhry Brothers (of PML-Q) or General (retd) Musharraf.. these people are not even capable of staying loyal to anyone,” said Nisar while addressing an electoral rally in Chahan area of the city.
The former interior minister who is now contesting against his own party’s candidate Qamarul Islam in the constituency said that he is still ready to support PML-N’s supreme leader Mian Nawaz Sharif but not his children.
“I can support Nawaz but can’t please his children,” said Nisar.
