Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leader and former federal minister Moonis Elahi has said that if he remains in the assemblies, he will serve the people and if the assemblies are dissolved, he will again go to the people’s court.
“Politics is our family mission; Muslim League is the representative party of the people. Whenever we get an opportunity, we leave no stone unturned to serve the public.”
Moonis quoted experts, saying: “The country has defaulted economically and the Shehbaz government failed to fix the economy.”
The PML-Q leader said, “We were with Imran Khan yesterday, we are today, and we will be in the future.”
Earlier, the younger Elahi said, “There is no conflict between the PTI and PML-Q on the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly and we have conveyed this message to the PTI chairman loud and clear: the assembly will be dissolved in the blink of an eye, if he can ensure elections in Punjab soon afterwards.”
Moonis, the son of Punjab CM Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, said, “The decision to dissolve the Punjab Assembly should be prudent [and take into consideration] the prevailing ground realities.”
He said that this apprehension had been conveyed to Imran when CM Elahi, him and Hussain Elahi called on the former at his Zaman Park residence on Dec 1.
According to Moonis, the PML-Q “has whole-heartedly agreed to allow Imran to dissolve the assembly anytime, but he should also be mindful of the fact that the PML-N’s coalition government should not be able to delay the elections through technicalities.”
He said that could make things difficult for both parties after “they are out of power in Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa”.
