Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) President Shujaat Hussain’s son Shafay Hussain has claimed that his uncle Parvez Elahi asked his father to contact Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) but later sided with Imran Khan.
Talking to a news channel on Saturday night, Shafay said that Chief Minister Elahi left for Bani Gala when his father convinced everyone to contact the PML-N.
His father reminded his uncle to keep the promises in mind when he was leaving for the former premier’s residence, he added.
“If Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was not formed, Imran Khan wouldn’t have made an offer to Parvez Elahi,” he maintained.
“A few weeks ago it seemed like Elahi was coming back but he went to Imran Khan,” the PML-Q leader said.
Speaking about the dissolution of the provincial assemblies, Shafay said he thinks that the Punjab Assembly will not be dissolved.
Talking about the politics in his family, Shafay said: “Two people of [our] family think that they have to do politics alone. We don’t have any issues in staying together but others don’t want it.”
About Kamil Ali Agha who was recently expelled from the PML-Q, Shafay called the senator a “hypocrite”.
“He [Agha] kept taking favours from Shujaat and later started opposing him,” Shafay said, adding that the words Agha said were either influenced or permitted by someone.
About the political crisis in Punjab, Shafay said that the province has had a corruption issue for several years.
“Money is being charged for transfers, postings and jobs. Corruption is done freely but there is no one to question it now,” he concluded.
