ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan has been accused by Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar of being the spokesman for the largest land mafia group in Pakistan.
While talking to the media Nisar said, “I know why Aitzaz is saying this, such statements are expected from the supporter and spokesman of the largest land mafia group.”
The interior minister’s remarks were in response to Aitzaz Ahsan’s speech during the joint session of Parliament on Wednesday in which he was critical of the government but expressed his support for democracy and the constitution.
Nisar added that he had no respect for an individual who treated politics like a business.
Meanwhile, Aitzaz Ahsan said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had telephoned him and apologized for Nisar’s statements. Ahsan added that he would respond to Nisar during the joint session of Parliament on Friday.
The interior ministry was neither confirming nor denying Nisar’s statements, Aitzaz added.
