LAHORE Senior Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi alleged on Saturday that the PML-N had tried its best to thwart the PPP-PML-Q alliance and for this purpose had offered the Federal government cooperation for the passage of the upcoming budget. Talking to party leaders who called on him to congratulate on assuming a new role in the Federal govt, Pervaiz Elahi said the alliance between various factions of the PML was made impossible by what he called the 'arrogance of PML-N Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif. He said people are trying to bring the PML factions closer felt frustrated with the attitude of Nawaz Sharif. Pervaiz Elahi, who is Punjab President of the PML-Q, asked the dissenting party leaders to return to the party fold, and assured them that they would be given due respect. He said the PML-N wanted to eliminate the PML-Q, while the PPP recognised its position. This alliance, he said, had laid the foundation of a new chapter in politics. About the benefits of the new alliance, he said it would bring political and economic stability to the country. Pervaiz said a number of new initiatives would be taken in the portfolios being held by PML-Q Ministers. Quality products would be provided to people at cheaper rates through utility stores, he added. He was critical of the Punjab governments performance. However, he said, the Federal government wanted to give the Punjab government full opportunity to set itself right. He said Daanish Schools and Aashiayana housing scheme were unwise projects. Critical of the Punjab governments treatment of doctors, he alleged that medical practitioners were leaving the country for this reason. The attitude of the previous government, he said, was far better, as a result of which those working in other countries started returning home. Answering a question, he said, PML-Q chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain had once underlined the need for a national government. He said it appeared that the country would soon have such a set up. Tahir Iqbal Chaudhry, Munawwar Manjh, Sardar Arif Nakai, Samina Khawar Hayat were among those who called on the Senior Minister.
