Chaudhry Shujaat Extended An Olive Branch To His Cousin
The Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) President Chaudhry Shujaat on Monday extended an olive branch to his cousin Chaudhry Parvez Elahi, pleading with him to put an end to the schism between the Chaudhrys of Gujrat.
At a news conference in Islamabad, Mr. Shujaat, joined by PML-Q leader Tariq Bashir Cheema, warned the media that “false narratives” about the party’s division were being circulated.
Pervaiz Elahi Made False Claims
He continued by saying that those close to Mr. Elahi, who won PTI backing to become Punjab’s chief minister, made “false” claims.
The PML-Q leader went into great depth about the issues that caused him and Mr. Elahi to disagree. He also urged the party’s reconciliation after a fight over the choice of the Punjab chief minister.

Election Commission of Pakistan
Despite a letter from the president claiming otherwise, the party also didn’t seem eager to take the matter before the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for the disqualification of the MPAs who supported Mr. Elahi.
Mr. Cheema answered the majority of the media’s queries because Mr. Shujaat is having health issues, and his voice was challenging to understand. On behalf of the party president, Mr. Cheema answered a question on the disqualification of the PML-Q MPAs in Punjab by saying that the legal team would decide once the Supreme Court’s entire judgement was available.
PML-Q President Discussed The Nation’s Economy
The PML-Q president discussed the nation’s economy during the news conference and claimed that the army chief’s intervention set a “bad precedent.”
He continued, “We all have to comprehend why the army chief had to ask the Americans to help Pakistan in these trying times,” adding that controlling the economy could become challenging if the situation was not under control.
