ISLAMABAD - Despite huge opposition from within party ranks, PML-Q leader Ch Pervaiz Elahi is likely to honour his deal clinched a few weeks earlier with President Asif Ali Zardari for forming a PPP-PML-Q coalition government in the province. Sources within PML-Q told The Nation that irrespective of the fact that the majority of Q-Leaders wanted to go with PML-N, party's president of Punjab chapter, Ch Pervaiz Elahi had opted to honour the deal, he had done with President Asif Ali Zardari a few weeks earlier during his secret dinner with him at Aiwan-e-Sadr. "In the said dinner, in which Pervaiz Elahi was accompanied by his son Moonis Elahi and cousin Wajahat Hussain, Ch Pervaiz had asked the President that PML-Q would not take the first step against PML-N government in the province and it was up to the PPP to take the initiative. Ch Pervaiz Elahi had further suggested to the President to play his role in the disqualification of Sharif brothers thus making the task of forming PPP-PML-Q coalition government in the province easy", said the reliable sources within PML-Q. The sources said that Ch Pervaiz Elahi had no option but to honour the deal he had clinched with PPP top brass including Governor Punjab, Salman Taseer. "The script for new government in Punjab is already written and Chaudhrys have to follow it in its letter and spirit", said the sources. As per previous deal between PPP and PML-Q, Chief Minister of Punjab would be from Peoples Party while Ch Moonis Elahi would have the slot of Senior Minister. A PML-Q leader seeking not to be attributed said that in case of defiance on behalf of Ch Pervaiz Elahi, the PPP top command could reopen Benazir Bhutto's assassination FIR against Elahi. It is to be mentioned here that PPP Sindh Government had lodged a fresh FIR of Karsaz blast on the first anniversary of the carnage on October 18, 2008 in which the letter written by Benazir Bhutto had also been cited wherein the former Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, the former DG FBI Ejaz Hussain Shah and the former ISI chief Hamid Gul had been named. The Government of Sindh had got registered the FIR under No. 213/2008. The sections, added in the new FIR, included 302/324/427/120-B/34-PPC/Explosive Act 7-ATA 34 and 109. Experts had said that the addition of section 109 in the FIR was a major breakthrough that defined that the conspirator, who had hatched the conspiracy, was also involved in the heinous crime. The reliable sources within PML-Q further told this correspondent that PML-Q had its doors open towards embattled PML-N for forging an alliance in Punjab if the latter offered CM slot to Q-League in political bargain. The sources within party also revealed that there was great opposition within the party over forging an alliance with PPP in the backdrop of disqualification of Sharif brothers by the apex court. "These leaders claim that the proposed coalition government of PPP and PML-Q in Punjab would not last long. They argue that it would be imprudent to rule an unstable government at the cost of mammoth public disgust", said the sources, adding that the dissidents of Ch brothers were asking them to do popular politics in the long-term interest of the party. But the same leaders of PML-Q while talking to The Nation at Ch Shujaat's residence on Thursday said that PML-Q elders who were opposing PML-Q-PPP power sharing deal in Punjab could not stop Elahi of toeing his line of action as they had no control over the party MPAs in the Province. "Ijazul Haq, Senator Salim Saifullah, Senator Muhammad Ali Durrani, Humayon Akhtar Khan, Gohar Ayub and such other leaders have no influence over party MPAs in the Punjab Assembly, thus their opposition to Ch Pervaiz Elahi's plan makes no difference", said the sources. Some sources within 'Q' said that party's central command had been approached by PML-N while Chaudhrys had said in response that they would answer after deliberations and consultations within the party. "PML-Q would ask the N-League for CM slot in exchange of its cooperation in the Province", said the sources, adding that PML-Q would go with that party which would offer 'maximum' in the power-sharing deal. A PML-Q central leader talking to this scribe said that if Ch brothers opted to stand by PPP at this time when PML-N command had already extended its hand of cooperation towards Q-League, the party would fizzle out in no time leaving behind Chaudhrys of Gujrat alone. He said that the PPP would treat Q-League in the same manner as it had treated with PML-N. "If the alliance of PML-N with PPP was unnatural the possible coalition of PML-Q with Peoples Party would also be unstable", he added. Senator Salim Saifullah said that the decision of Supreme Court would further aggravate crises in the country. On the issue of PML-Q's future strategy regarding Punjab, he said that no doubt there were talks underway between PPP and PML-Q provincial chapter over forming a coalition government in the Province but the party's Central Executive Committee would take the decision in this regard in a day or two. He said that some PML-Q leaders were in favour of forging an alliance with PPP while an overwhelming majority of 'Q' leaders was in favour of PML unification. In the meantime, President PML-Q Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain here on Thursday ruled out any contact between PML-N and PML-Q and said that it was the right of all to play a positive role in improving law and order situation in the country. He was talking to journalists along with Governor Balochistan, Nawab Zulfiqar Magsi who visited Chaudhrys' residence to condole the death of Mrs Zahoor Elahi. Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi said that the disqualification of both the Sharif brothers would result into a "political vacuum". Talking to the journalists at his residence after offering Dua for the departed soul of his mother-in-law, Pervaiz Elahi said he was "dejected" over the court verdict. To a query, he said that the PML-Q Central Executive Committee (CEC) would take any decision regarding entering into an alliance with any political party for the formation of government in Punjab. Brushing aside the media reports of a high level meeting on Wednesday night, Elahi said that the government had made no contact with the PML-Q for formation of government in Punjab. "President Asif Ali Zardari had phoned PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain on the sad demise of his mother. However, no political discussion took place," he added.
