ISLAMABAD: The federal cabinet is divided over the issue of an FIR registered against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif blaming him for criminal conspiracy over his recent “provocative speeches” that were made from London.
According to sources, during a meeting of the federal cabinet on Tuesday, two federal ministers and a special assistant suggested that the FIR registered against Nawaz “should reach its logical conclusion”.
However, Prime Minister Imran Khan and other members of the cabinet remained adamant that the government was not in favour of exacting political revenge on the opposition.
“The government is not involved with this FIR,” PM Imran Khan was quoted as saying during the meeting.
The other ministers, according to sources, were of the opinion that the FIR against Nawaz should be dismissed.
