ISLAMABAD - Opposition and government will once again lock horns today in National Assembly’s proceedings over the departure of former military dictator Pervez Musharraf from the country.

Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan, as per his promise which he committed in the joint session, is likely to share details in the National Assembly about the government’s decision of allowing Musharraf to leave the country.

“The interior minister will try to give response to a privilege motion against him for making misrepresentation statement on behalf of the government about the former president,” parliamentary sources told The Nation yesterday.

Opposition parties especially PPP are set to give tough time to the interior minister for his recent statement that Musharraf has been allowed by Supreme Court to leave the country.

Sources said that other opposition parties including PTI and MQM will also support PPP for taking the interior minister to task.

Nisar in the joint sitting of parliament had reiterated that the name of former military dictator was removed from the ECL only in the light of the Supreme Court judgment.

He also made commitment to involve Interpol to bring back Musharraf if he attempts to adopt defying course. “Why PPP avoided to become party, if it had any objection over the Supreme Court order,” said Nisar, which ostensibly made major opposition party (PPP) to submit a privilege motion.

Nisar had also not spared the then PPP government for failing to take any action against the former president as his name was also in the murder of Benazir Bhutto.

Talking to The Nation, opposition lawmakers said that opposition will show unity to grill Nisar on plethora of matters. “PTI and MQM will also play its part to once again give tough time to the interior minister,” they said.
