Ch Shujaat rejects Ch Wajahat’s allegations


Convenes party’s crucial meeting to mend fences among family
Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) Chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain on Saturday said that the allegations made by Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain are absurd and he will answer all the questions in front of the people in Gujrat. Responding to Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain’s speech in a statement on Twitter, the PML-Q Chief said that Wajahat Hussain has made ridiculous statements while addressing people in their house in Gujrat. “Allegations were made related to Asif Ali Zardari and my sons have been accused of asking for dollars,” he said.
He further said that the unanimous candidate of the opposition, Shehbaz Sharif, was voted at his behest, adding that they did not ask for any ministry from anyone. Asif Ali Zardari himself came and congratulated them. Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain explained that he has told his sons to currently remain silent on the matter. I have instructed them to always keep the promise, he said. The former prime minister added that his brother Wajahat Hussain said he would form a new party. “Hundreds of parties have already been formed in Pakistan. What difference will it make with another,” he added.
The PML-Q leader further stated that the statement made about Tariq Bashir Cheema was immoral and based on lies. “I will visit Gujrat in sometime and will tell Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain that which constituency belongs to whom,” said Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain. In a last-ditch effort to mend fences among family, PML-Q chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has summoned a meeting of members of his family including Chaudhry Parvez Elahi to decide on supporting PTI or PML-N.
According to sources, at least five meetings have been held to end differences among the family after Parvez Elahi announced support for the PTI and Chaudhry Shujaat extended his backing to PML-N-led federal government. “During the meeting, Parvez Elahi and Chaudhry Wajahat asked Salik Hussain to leave the coalition government so that the party remains intact and pursue the same line,” they said, adding that during the first three meetings, Salik Hussain sought time to leave the government.
In two later meetings, they said that Salik suggested that both the groups should go ahead with separate narratives. “You continue to support Imran Khan while we will support Shehbaz Sharif,” the sons of Shujaat suggested however, Moonis Elahi and Parvez Elahi rejected the idea. Soon after the meetings, Asif Zardari also called on Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and his sons. The sources said that Chaudhry Shujaat has now summoned a meeting to make last-ditch efforts to mend fences among the family and has also directed all of them against commenting on a recent statement from Chaudhry Wajahat. “A crucial meeting is likely to take place in the next two days,” they said.
