Since the JIT report is made public, one personality within the ranks of PML-N is absent from the Government’s Parliamentary meetings and that is no other than Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan. The outspoken interior minister’s absence from party meetings in these tough times is raising a lot questions as the ever widening gap between him and the party is alarming.
Some experts are of the view that even in the past Ch Nisar opposed Nawaz Sharif decisions and three times he had rendered his resignation from the party and thrice Shehbaz Sharif brought him round. The interior minister has fairly good relations with Shehbaz Sharif and it is unlikely that Ch Nisar will support Nawaz Shrif since JIT report has declared him the culprit.
Furthermore the Interior Minister said on record in a press conference that if Nawaz Sharif is found guilty, he will be the first person to oppose him. There are some speculations that other enraged members of PML-N are in touch with Chaudhary Nisar and that he may form another faction of the party that would deal a heavy blow to Nawaz Sharif.
