LAHORE - Senior PML-Q leaders from southern Punjab are worried about their political share after the proposed alliance of various Muslim Leagues takes a final shape, The Nation has learnt. Sources in PML-Q privy to the fears of senior party leaders hailing from southern Punjab regarding their political share in the stated part of the province when an alliance comprising various factions of Muslim Leagues takes a final shape told this scribe on Friday that the aforementioned PML-Qs political elite from southern Punjab had sharp differences with PML (Functional) leaders in their areas, while Pir of Pagaro, PML (Functional) chief was the team leader for creating a larger alliance consisting of various Leagues and it was highly likely that Functional leaders would make efforts to grab sizeable political share in Southern Punjab. They also disclosed that high command of PML-Q had assured party leaders from Southern Punjab that they would not only get their due share in the stated parts of the province but the PML-Q leaders would be given important responsibilities in Southern Punjab after the formation of a larger alliance comprising various factions of Leagues. However, some leaders were not satisfied with the assurances of their top leadership in this regard and weighing their options, which could take a practical shape after the formation of the alliance of the Muslim Leagues. Some leaders of PML-Q seeking anonymity told this reporter that senior party leader, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi never liked PML (Functional) president Punjab, Makhdom Ahmed Mehmood and mentioned his dislike for Mehmood in several party meetings, however, the current development of Chaudhrys joining hands with Pagaro was managed by some powerful quarters of the establishment to whom 'Chaudhrys could not say no. They said that party leaders hailing from Southern Punjab were uneasy with alliance between the PML-Q and PML-F and wanted not only early assurances in restricting the role of PML-F in the backdrop of the recent development but also wanted their edge over the PML-F leaders in Southern Punjab without going into the details of future of the alliance in the making comprising various factions of Muslim Leagues. When contacted, Riaz Hussain Pirzada a veteran politician and PML-Q member Parliament from Bahawalpur, had not only seconded the fears of party leaders hailing from Southern Punjab regarding their political share after the proposed alliance of Leagues takes a practical shape but also predicted that PML-F could make efforts for overstepping the influence of PML-Q in southern parts of the province. Pirzada was of the view that the issue of political share in Southern Punjab could become a serious issue between the PML-Q and PML-F after the efforts for forging an alliance among the factions of Muslim Leagues.
