Pir Pagara, chief of the Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) said all generals of the Pak Army are patriots, adding the Army would not force into the scene at anyone’s behest; instead, it would come on time.
Talking to media at Kingri House here along with Sheikh Rashid after meeting with him, Pir Pagara, while commenting on Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain’s statement regarding martial law, said Altaf Hussain harbours evil intentions in his mind.
Feudal lords and jagirdar are lying in their graves; now, thought should be given to their children, he said adding Altaf Hussain would ‘go up’ if returned home.
Commenting on former President Gen. (rtd) Pervez Musharraf’s homecoming, the PML-F chief said no Pakistani president, who went abroad, ever traced his steps back home.
All Muslim Leagues are going to be merged in one entity to be led by a chief given thumbs-up by the council, Pir Pagara informed.
The future of Sheikh Rashid and Shahbaz Sharif is bright; while, the Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan have dark future, Pir Pagara remarked adding Nawaz did not receive two-third majority; instead, it was a forced incident.
According to Daily Times:
PML-Q and PML-F merge
KARACHI: Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) chief Pir Sahab Pagaro on Saturday announced the merger of his party with the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q), saying the development would pave the way for the formation of the All-Pakistan Muslim League (APML).
Talking to reporters along with PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Secretary General Mushahid Hussain at Kingri House, Pagaro said, “It is not unification, but assimilation of the Muslim League.”
“Efforts are being made for the unification of the Pakistan Muslim League and I am in contact with other leaders to bring all on one platform,” he added. “We have settled all of our differences (the PML-Q) through talks and meetings,” he said, adding that his doors were open for anyone who was willing to contact him.
To a question, Pagaro said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif and former president Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf had not contacted him so far. “We will welcome Nawaz Sharif in case he contacts us for forming the APML,” he added.
Pagaro also invited other political parties to merge with the APML, so that “we can make efforts to save the country and serve the nation”. “PTI chief Imran Khan will be left alone if he decides not to join us,” he claimed.
Responding to a question about the role of Ejazul Haq in the APML, Pagaro said Haq’s role would be no different from “what one can expect from the son of a dictator”. Chaudhry Shujaat said he had asked Pir Pagaro to assume the role of his patron. “The country is heading towards a crucial situation and if patriotic people do not come out to take the lead, then God knows what will happen,” Shujaat said. staff report
