Sources have stated that the interior minister was present in Punjab House throughout Tuesday where he looked after routine official matters.

Nisar, known for his verbal outbursts, has kept his lips sealed on the latest happenings in Panama Papers Case and has not issued a single statement in favour of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) or in denial of JIT’s findings. Similarly, he hasn’t met any active leader of the ruling party.

Lax behaviour of interior minister has stirred discomfort in PML-N’s camp with party’s workers and federal ministers waiting for statement as Nisar was the one who drove PM to judicial academy during his appearance before Panamagate JIT.

It should be recalled that head of Panamagate JIT Wajid Zia, being additional director of Federal Investigation Agency, is Chaudhry Nisar’s subordinate officer.
