Nisar said he is no fear of ministry, adding first he is a Muslim and did not scare from anyone. He said whatever is right he will do for the country whether it annoys someone or make happy someone.
He said if Hakimullah Mehsood would have not been killed then there would have been great progress in the talks with Taliban. He said the US is lying on the matter.
He said if there was problem in thumb verification in several constituencies of Karachi then why the cases were not registered against the responsible.
He said that the hide and seek play should be ended and reality should be informed to the masses regarding the magnetic ink used in the general elections.

To a question, he said that he had never claimed credit for Karachi situation.
Referring to Government’s initiative of dialogue with Taliban‚ he said there will be much progress in this regard if there was no drone attack.

The Minister said he took decisions in the interest of the State. He said‚ he cancelled over two thousand official passports which were being misused. He said that the people of all parties were included in those whom official passports were cancels. He said the passports were canceled on the directions of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
