ISLAMABAD— In an important development, Pervaiz Elahi led PMLQ group has decided to join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) following Shujaat Hussain, the chief of the party, decided to continue support of the current coalition government.
Earlier previous week, reports of split between famous Chaudhry brothers of Gujrat have emerged following the Muslim League Quaid (PMLQ)- led by the famous Chaudhry brothers of Gujrat- President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain’s younger brother Chaudhry Wajahat’s son Hussain Elahi announced to leave the party.
Differences had already emerged in PML-Q since the no-confidence motion against ex-PM Imran Khan increased day by day. They tried to reconcile but Chaudhry Hussain Elahi’s latest statement that they would decide to join PTI in consultation with his family was seemingly a major blow to PML-Q.
The sources said, Chaudhry Shujaat unsuccessfully tried to convince Pervaiz Elahi to join the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). When they couldn’t agree, the two leaders decided to part away.
Responding to a question asked by the journalist, he said that Imran Khan will come back with the majority because people have decided to support him, adding that he would decide to join PTI in consultation with his family.
Chaudhry Hussain Elahi, a young MNA of the Chaudhry family, is supporting Pervaiz Elahi led PMLQ group while Chaudhry Salik, Tariq Bashir Cheema and Begum Farrukh Khan are with Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain.
Salik Hussain has also decided to join PML-N.
