ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Senator Saeed Ghani on Wednesday said his party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari's tweet about interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan's 'campaign to become prime minister is 'his viewpoint'.

"It is his viewpoint, he might have felt that Nisar wants to become the prime minister. The PPP never said it, but PTI and Iftikhar Chaudhry have demanded that someone else should become prime minister during Nawaz's absence due to illness," Ghani said while speaking in Geo News show 'Capital Talk'.

When asked if he too doubts Nisar's intentions, he said "it's possible that Nisar holds this desire in his heart and for this purpose he might create difficulties for Nawaz to get premiership back".

Earlier in the day, PPP chairman Bilawal had tweeted that Chaudhry Nisar's campaign to become prime minister is not going well as planned and he is getting frustrated.

"Ch. Nisar's campaign 2 become PM isnt going as well as planned &hes getting frustrated. Poor form taking advantage of PMs illness like this," Bilawal had tweeted.

Just a day ago, Bilawal also mocked the former chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry by saying he would have made himself prime minister if he were still Pakistan's chief justice.

Former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry on Saturday had demanded that the National Assembly should elect an interim PM in Nawaz Sharif's absence to save the country from 'constitutional crisis', while PTI chief Imran Khan had said that the PM’s health issues had created another crisis in the country and suggested that Mr Sharif should have resigned as the leader of the house to avoid such a situation.

It is pertinent to note here that premier's daughter Maryam Nawaz told DawnNews on Wednesday that the PM's surgery is successful and is expected to return to Pakistan before the end of Ramazan.
