ISLAMABAD  -  Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said on Friday that he neither made any effort to meet incarcerated former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in Adiala jail nor tried to approach him through Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif.

Nisar’s spokesman said that all such news were baseless and unfounded as he (Nisar) had made no attempt to meet Sharif in jail nor he had made any contacts with PML-N chief Shehbaz Sharif in recent days.

Meanwhile, Nisar visited both his constituencies NA-59 and NA-63 from where he lost both the seats in July 25 elections and thanked the people for extending support to him and giving him a sizeable number of votes.

Nisar has won the PP-10 seat for which he expressed gratitude to the people of the area for reposing confidence in his candidature.

During interaction with the people, he said that he believed in politics of service and would stand by his constituents and fight for their rights in his personal capacity as he was indebted to the people of the area who had voted him to power since 1985.

Sources close to Nisar said that he was not interested in going to the Punjab Assembly and would prefer to contest by-elections on a National Assembly seat to be vacated by PTI leader Sarwar Khan who had defeated Nisar from both the NA constituencies.

As Sarwar has to vacate one of these seats, Nisar would most likely contest the vacated seat to become part of the Parliament for record 8th time.
