Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah on Wednesday termed withdrawal of Nasir Khan Khosa’s name for Punjab’s caretaker chief minister (CM) a joke.

He was exclusively talking to Dunya News.

“Decision to nominate Nasir Khan Khosa as caretaker CM of Punjab was taken after thorough consultation with Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI). There is no space to take back Khosa’s name at present”, Sanaullah asserted.

Sanaullah held that further dialogue on same issue can’t be held as per Constitution. He asserted that Khosa was a honest man.

In a video message, Shehbaz vowed to put country on the path of progress via democratic procedure. Sharif further added that Nasir Saeed Khosa is a person of good reputation.
