LAHORE - The Pakistan Muslim League-Q, which has of late been on a trail to meet every politically active party or leader, discussed performance of the PPP-led government with Tehreek-e-Insaaf chairman Imran Khan on Saturday.
During the last two weeks, PML-Q leaderers have met Jamaat-i-Islami chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the MQM leadership and now Imran.
According to party insiders, there was no specific agenda for the meeting, as Imran differed with PML-Q leaders on most of the issues afflicting the national politics except for price hike and bad governance, the Dawn reported.
Speaking about the objective of the meeting, PML-Q leader Chaudhry Shujaat Husain said: “We want an alliance against all those who want to fail the state, and one that can cleanse politics. Imran Khan is a man of character and no one has questioned his integrity, including his critics.”
Imran, on his part, also found some common ground with the Chaudhrys when he said that the PML-Q was the “only party playing role of opposition in the country. The PPP and the PML-N are partners in crimes and saving each other.”
However, the leadership of both parties was quite careful to make any future commitment, and restricted their comments to the weaknesses of the government.
According to PML-Q insiders, it was a Godsend opportunity for the Chaudhrys when the Jamaat-i-Islami party quit the government and made Islamabad politically unstable. (ANI)
