Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif met Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Wednesday and requested him not to make his party’s internal conflict public by holding a press conference, Express News reported.
The chief minister held a meeting with his fellow Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) leader at the Punjab House and urged him to resolve the issues amicably, sources said. Sharif said the ongoing rift could be taken care of internally and there was no need to make it public.
Shahbaz commended Nisar’s efforts for the party and told him that he was an important part of the PML-N.
The interior minister said that his differences were based on principles and that he was not working for his own interests but for the party and the country.
The sources said senior PML-N leaders were trying to convince Nisar not to go for a hard-hitting press conference and refrain from targeting the policies of his party’s leadership in handling the situation which had led to the mess the party was in now.
