Nisar slams Fazl for 'misquoting facts'
30 September, 2012
ISLAMABAD: Reacting to the statement of Fazlur Rehman, leader of the opposition in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Saturday said that either Rehman is totally ignorant of law and constitution or deliberately misquoting facts for obvious reasons.
According to a statement, Nisar said, "To confuse and misrepresent the consultation between the leader of house and leader of the opposition which is both constitutional and legal in the nature to the informal interaction which the leader of the opposition is having with all opposition parties amounts to a total distortion and fabrication of the situation on the ground."
Fazl should be careful in using word "blackmail" because the people were fully aware of those leaders whose politics revolved around self-interest and blackmailing.
"It is strange that Fazlur Rehman's party occupies the opposition benches but constantly supports the government and criticises the opposition. At least he should have the moral courage to clarify whether he is with the government or the opposition," the statement also read.
"Unfortunately, Maulana sahib's entire political career has been replete with political opportunism, summersault, U-turn and wheeling and dealing. His latest statement seems to be an exercise in the same direction," Nisar added.
