ISLAMABAD – Federal Minister for Interior and Narcotics Control Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan was not ‘dracula’ that he should be afraid of him.

Responding to a journalist’s question during an informal talk with media in Islamabad, Mr. Khan wondered whether Aitzaz Ahsan was a ‘dracula’ that made him fearful.

He did not care for such people who were in fact tools of “property and gas tycoons”, he added.

“If anyone had a misunderstanding or overconfidence about his [Aitzaz Ahsan’s] role or status then one could only express regrets on it,” Nisar said.

The statement came after Aitzaz Ahsan’s remarks on the Interior Minister that who he suggested had had bad dreams about him day and night.
