PML-Q making alliances with other parties to ensure PML-N’s defeat: Elahi


Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leader and Deputy Prime Minister Parvez Elahi on Friday said his party was making alliances with other political and religious parties to ensure defeat of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) in Punjab.
Talking to journalists outside Punjab Assembly, where the Assembly’s former speaker Salman Mohal left PML-N and joined PML-Q, he said that Mohal would contest in provincial assembly elections from PP-280 Bahawalnagar on PML-Q’s ticket.
Pervez Elahi further said that this new addition to the party had strengthened PML-Q’s ties with Southern Punjab.
On the occasion, Mian Salman Mohal said that elders of the Mohal family from Bahawalnagar had unanimously allowed him to contest the elections. He said he was associated with PML-N which claimed to be the party of the people but Shahbaz Sharif was not aware about sorrows and pains of the people. He said that he felt that he was a victim of dictatorship of PML-N and had hence quit the party and joined PML-Q.
