How Zardari joked Nawaz out of making arch nemesis Aitzaz Punjab Guv!September 12th, 2008 - 3:39 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Sept 12 (ANI): Newly sworn in Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari declined PML-N leader and former premier Nawaz Sharifs call of installing Supreme Court Bar Association President Aitzaz Ahsan as the next Punjab Governor, saying in a lighter vein that by doing so the Governor House would become a centre of anti-PPP rallies.
When, earlier this week, Zardari asked who the new governor should be, Nawaz named Ahsan, but the former refused saying light-heartedly that the Governors House would become a hub of anti-PPP rallies if Aitzaz was made the governor, reported the Daily Times.
According to the paper, the demand was made at a meeting between a PML-N delegation led by Nawaz Sharif and Zardari after his election as president on September 8.
Nawaz had asked Zardari to change the Punjab governor, said sources privy to the meeting. (ANI)
