PML-N engaged in horse-trading in Punjab


PML-Q forward bloc to support PML-N: Maneka

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) forward bloc leader Ata Maneka claimed on Friday the support of 35 members, and said all of them would support the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz unconditionally. Addressing the media after meeting the Sharif brothers at their Raiwind farmhouse, Maneka said, “Not a single PML-Q leader, including Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain wants to support the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), with the exception of Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi – who, for certain reasons, is in favour of contacts with the ruling party.” He said, “As many as 33 members of the forward bloc have come to Raiwind to meet the Sharifs.” The Online news agency reported that 29 members met Shahbaz Sharif on Friday at his Raiwind residence. Replying to a question, he said that nobody could disqualify the forward bloc members. Maneka said Punjab was the major province of the country, and “if something goes wrong here, the entire country will suffer”. staff report
