If they listened to me PML-N would have been in power today: Nisar

Rawalpindi: Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said on Saturday that if the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) had listened to him, it would have been in power today.

Speaking to journalists here, he said there was no political stability in the country. Without political stability, a country cannot progress, he said. The government needed to understand that without the opposition, the political system cannot function, he added.

He criticised the accountability process and said no one has any issues with accountability but the government must take the opposition into confidence regarding the process.

Khan said the government should address the opposition’s issues with the accountability process as well. Accountability can be unbiased when it keeps its credibility, he explained.

“The type of accountability being done with the opposition should be done with the government too,” he said.

He added: “I am telling the people of this constituency that your votes are here but they haven’t been counted, he said. The Supreme Court put an end to the option of a recount and I don’t want to know the details of this.”

The former interior minister said he won the provincial seat by a margin of 36,000 votes. The Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) had no standing in this constituency, he argued.
