ISLAMABAD (APP) - PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain Monday turned down the offer by former President General (r) Pervez Musharraf for playing role to unify all factions of PML. In an exclusive talk with this news agency, a senior official of the party confirmed that Musharraf had made the offer during a meeting with son of Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, Moonis Elahi, during the latters visit to Musharrafs residence at London. However, Shujaat politely turned down the offer, saying that Musharraf had already put his weight behind one faction of the PML, led by Hamid Nasir Chattha, by felicitating Chattha on being elected as PML Chairman. While he did not do so when Shujaat was elected President PML on July 20, the official said. He added that the recent visit of Secretary General of the same faction Humayun Akhtar Khan at Musharrafs residence is another proof of the fact that the blessings of former President were with the rebel group. Yes, we have had an informal interaction with the former President from time to time, however, there is no political role for him though he is backing the rebel group, he added. Musharraf had made an offer through a subtle message to PML President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain at a meeting with Moonis Elahi at London, saying that he was ready to play his role in unifying PML factions if Ch Shujaat Hussain steps down from partys top slot, making way for him to lead the party. Moonis had conveyed the message to Shujaat on Monday when he arrived in Lahore from Germany. When contacted, PML Secretary-General Mushahid Hussain said his party was clear that there was no role for the former dictator in political arena of the country. We are clear over the issue. We have embarked upon a countrywide tour to reorganise the PML. We have no intention to seek favours from anyone including the former President, he said. I think he (Musharraf) has gone and has no plans to return to the country. There is no chances for his return to political field and we wish him good luck, he added. Mushahid hinted at a public announcement over the issue in a few days, saying that soon the party leaders would meet in capital city to devise the future strategy. As Chaudhry Shujaat has returned here from Germany, while President of Sindh Chapter Ghous Bakhsh Khan Mehr and other leaders would be available on phone for consultation, he said. Mushahid added that he would leave for Karachi next week to organise party meetings at the grassroots level. Online adds: Former president Pervez Musharraf has urged unification of two factions of PML-Q, saying that he was a retired army general and would face the cases being registered against him.
