ISLAMABAD - Owing to a major political twist in country's political scenario, the embattled PML-Q has become the focal political entity, as both PPP and PML-N are luring it for strengthening their grip on the corridors of power. The PPP's Chief Whip in the National Assembly, Syed Khurshid Shah has been assigned to woo PML-Q lawmakers in the Lower House. "Syed Khurshid Shah contacted Q-League's Chief Whip in the National Assembly, Mian Riaz Hussain Pirzada and asked for his party's help in the presidential election. Responding to the request, Pirzada asked Shah to contact PML-Q's central command and also warned him that Q-League was annoyed over the moves of PPP leadership for wooing its lawmakers while bypassing the Chaudhry brothers", the well informed sources within PML-Q told The Nation. The sources further said that on the request of Pirzada, Opposition Leader in the National Assembly, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi had a meeting with Syed Khurshid Shah during the NA session but with no commitment for supporting PPP's presidential candidate or cooperating with PPP in the provincial assembly of the Punjab. On the other hand, PML-N leadership has started luring PML-Q to avert any possible move by PPP to topple Punjab Government that is not practical without Q-League's assistance. PML-N legislator, Tehmina Daultana and Sheikh Rohail Asghar were also seen negotiating with PML-Q lawmakers in the Parliament. Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, talking to this correspondent at the party's joint parliamentary meeting at Shujaat's residence, said that PML-N's Zulfiqar Khosa and Ishaq Dar had contacted him for the cooperation. Meanwhile, PML-Q President, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has also said that his party would resist any attempt to overthrow N-League's government in Punjab. "The issuance of statement by Shujaat was very well calculated and meant to send a friendly signal toward PML-N", said a PML-Q lawmaker who himself had advised him to do so. " The dubious activities of Governor Punjab, Salman Taseer and Manzoor Ahmad Wattoo in Punjab are also pushing angry PML-N toward us thus paving the two parties' imminent alliance", he further said. The sources in PML-Q told this scribe that the majority of party leaders were more inclined to form an alliance with PML-N at center as well as in Punjab than to going into a coalition with PPP. Some other Q-League parliamentarians still claim that their party would withdraw PML-Q's presidential candidate in favour of PML-N's in the coming days.
