Lahore, Jan 13 (ANI): PML-Q president Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has said the political situation of the country would have been entirely different had PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif shown flexibility in his stance earlier over the reunification of Pakistan Muslim League (PML) factions.

Addressing a ceremony on the eve of the PML foundation day celebrations here on Monday, Shujaat said: The flexibility in Nawazs stance has come really late … it is also not meant to unite the PML, instead it is aimed at saving the Punjab government.

He said Nawaz had missed two important opportunities for an alliance of PML factions — one immediately after the February 18 elections last year and the other on the eve of the presidential elections, the Daily Times reported.

The PML-Q chief said Nawaz should prefer national interest to personal ego, and proposed talks aimed at an alliance of PML factions.

Shujaat said the PML-N had also rejected the role of a senior journalist purportedly mediating between the PML-Q and the PML-N.

Shujaat said he had put forward the following points for the formation of an alliance: The alliance should not be aimed at saving or toppling a government, the Sharif brothers should change their attitude and refrain from making insulting remarks.

He also called for an end to the alleged victimisation of PML-Q workers.

The Pervaiz Elahi regime protected the Sharif familys businesses (while they were in exile) … but the things being done by Shahbaz Sharifs Government are an open secret, he said. (ANI)
