LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat quoted a close aide of the Prime Minister as saying that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government could not deliver on its duties till now. Unless you get rid of the 'flattery and hypocrisy' that surrounds you.
It is to be noted that only a week before this statement came to the announcement that the differences with the government's allies had been settled.
This is the second time that the PML-Q, a key ally of the PTI in the federal and provincial provinces, has raised a finger on close associates of the prime minister and blamed them for the failure of the PTI in running the government. The message seems clear.
On his return from Saudi Arabia after paying Umrah, Chaudhry Shujaat said that "Imran Khan's intentions are good but he (like others) has not learned the political stake, I want to give him an advice that will be a welcomed one around him. And stay away from the hypocrites and don't let them be around you. '
He further said that in the past, I had warned Nawaz Sharif about self-immolation, but he did not pay attention. Interestingly, some of the flattery with Nawaz Sharif is still in power.
The president of the PML-Q said he had also advised General Pervez Musharraf not to associate the madrassas with the Taliban, "for six months, Musharraf followed my advice and used the word extremists instead. After that, he started calling the seminary students as Taliban. ”
Earlier, the PML-Q had said that there were some 'simple iron characters' in the PM's team who could not give them proper advice.
In this regard, PML-Q sources told that Chaudhry of Gujarat is not happy with the elements in the PTI government who have made great efforts to bridge the gap between the PM and the PML-Q leadership.
Sources say that the PML-Q believes that such elements reduce the trust between them (the Prime Minister and the Chaudhry) by giving false information about the leadership of their party to the Prime Minister.
