Elahi dispels impression of fissures between PTI, coalition partners
LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Q leader and Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi on Sunday dispelled the impression that his party is mulling over parting ways with the ruling coalition at the centre and Punjab.
Speaking to media, he said conspiracy theories about fissures between the ruling PTI and its coalition partners won’t succeed in accomplishing their desired objectives.
“We are a coalition partner of the government and will remain so,” he clarified, adding no one can create a misunderstanding between them.
The PML-Q leader said they always said what was right thinking through political realities.
He added their stance on former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s treatment abroad was for Prime Minister Imran Khan’s own good.
He said they played their role in deterring any sort of confrontation during the JUI-F’s Islamabad sit-in.
Their decision to contact JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman to avoid anarchy in the country stands vindicated, he said, giving the credit for maintaining law and order situation to the prime minister and the interior minister.
It is noteworthy that Elahi had held several meetings with the Maulana to end the deadlock between the government and JUI-F, the opposition party that led a protest in Islamabad.
