Pak Minister counter questions PPP on meeting leaders of proscribed organisations

ANI  |  Islamabad [Pakistan] 

Launching a scathing attack on the People's Party for criticising his meetings with leaders of proscribed organisations, Interior Minister Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Saturday questioned if PPP leaders during their tenure did not meet these leaders.

"Everyone knows the issues the PPP has with me," the Express Tribune quoted Nisar, as saying.

He, however, admitted that there are photographs of him meeting leaders of those organisations.

Nisar had defended his meetings with leaders of proscribed organisations on Tuesday saying that banned sectarian organisations could not be equated with the banned terrorist groups.

The Interior Minister asserted that outlawed sectarian organisations should not be equated with terrorist outfits.
