Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar while addressing a press conference on Sunday said he would clarify the reasons behind his exclusion from Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's cabinet and clear up other "misgivings".
Nisar said he would also offer an explanation as to what had been happening in the Interior Ministry for the last four years under his leadership.
"People who have been criticising the Interior Ministry do not appear to be aware that it does not have executive powers," Nisar said.
He claimed that he had tolerated unfair allegations with patience. "Many people own good decisions, but few take responsibility when something goes wrong."
"Publicly we [the government] must stand united," he urged. "As a nation, we have a very short memory, so I will be recalling a few things to refresh peoples' memory."
