Politics- Chaudhry Nisar sets one condition for reconciliation with Nawaz Sharif
ISLAMABAD: Following his meeting with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shahbaz Sharif, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has given a conditional nod to put aside his reservations and differences with the ruling party, sources said.
Shahbaz reached through a special plane from Lahore to Islamabad on Thursday, where he held a two-hour-long meeting with the disgruntled party leader at the Punjab House.
This was the fifth meeting between Nisar and Shahbaz in over the past a couple of weeks. The last meeting of the two took place on Sunday where, according to sources, the two discussed various party issues, including a strategy for the upcoming general elections and ways to strengthen the party.
Sources privy to the entire development told Geo News that Nisar had been awaiting the Punjab chief minister, a friend. The leaders held a discussion for two hours, after which Shahbaz immediately returned to Lahore.
Nisar has been ready to forget his differences and reservations with the party, sources said, but he has put forth a condition that the PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif should also come and meet him along with Shahbaz Sharif.
Nisar reportedly told Shahbaz that if Nawaz comes to meet him, he would be ready to move forth with the party and they could also decide the way forward. The rift between Nisar, a veteran party leader from Rawalpindi, and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif has been brewing since July last year following Nawaz's disqualification and subsequent public offensive against his ouster.
