PML-Q is still an ally of the PTI but a separate party: Pervaiz Elahi
LAHORE ( Web News )
Following a hard-hitting interview, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam Punjab President and Speaker Punjab Assembly Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi has said that his party has not quitted the ruling coalition nor has it joined the Opposition.
“Prime Minister Imran Khan is honest and his intentions are also good,” Elahi said on Wednesday in a statement.
Chaudhry Pervez Elahi, in an interview with a private TV channel on Tuesday, had said that all allies of the government have a 100% tilt towards the Opposition.
Responding to a question, Elahi had seconded PPP Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari’s claim of having more than 172 lawmakers’ support on the Opposition’s side besides “plenty of surprises in store”.
Pervaiz Elahi had also held the government responsible for its trouble, terming it devoid of wisdom.
However, on Wednesday, Elahi said that PML-Q is still an ally of the PTI but a separate party. “We are allies and a separate party. There are different views in a party but decisions are taken through consultations.”
“They are part of the government and have supported the government in every difficult time,” Pervaiz Elahi added. The PML-Q leader said that they have been pointing out public issues since day one and advised the government to consult allies for its own good.
