Maryam's sharp tongue pushing PML-N into a corner: Nisar

Islamabad (Staff Report): Former Interior Minister and disgruntled PML-N leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Thursday said that Maryam Nawaz's sharp tongue was pushing the party into a corner.

While reacting to an earlier statement by PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz, Nisar said Maryam’s "sharp tongue" was forcing the party into a narrow alley.

"I have been forced to give a response to the terms used and poetry recited by Mian Nawaz Sharif yesterday and his daughter's statement," Nisar said in a statement, adding that he had exercised a lot of patience and tolerance in the situations and circumstances that had arisen in the past year.

"Mian sb man can do no favours for mankind, only God can."

Earlier, Nisar had announced to contest 2018 general elections from NA 59 on Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) ticket.

He recalled his political beginning and said that he set on this journey in 1985 from NA-140 constituency and that the constituency was maintained from then till 2002. It was divided into two constituencies in 2002 as a conspiracy to keep him from winning, Nisar claimed.
