Lahore, Feb. 5 (ANI): The Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) has set several conditions for a possible alliance with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in Punjab, a private TV channel has claimed.
The channel quoted a close aide of PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain as saying that the party had set certain terms for a possible power-sharing deal with the PPP, including dissolution of the Punjab Government.
PML-Q Punjab President Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi said his party would decide whether to support the PPP or the PML-N on the basis of the Supreme Courts verdict in the eligibility case of PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.
Elahi confirmed talks between the PPP and the PML-Q, and termed PML-Ns recent behaviour as arrogant.
Separately, Shujaat denied reports of his meeting with Nawaz Sharif in London, while adding that he would not approach anyone for the unification of the PML.
Meanwhile, PML-N Information Secretary Ahsan Iqbal claimed that his party had the numerical strength to prevent any misadventure against the Punjab government. He said his party enjoyed a majority in the Punjab Assembly even without the PPP. (ANI)
