LAHORE - The PML-N, after the judges restoration, has got another fairly of luck for making its government in Punjab, as the PML-Q forward bloc has obtained 51 per cent strength required to enjoy the status of a parliamentary party that will pave the way to vote for the PML-N avoiding the lurking sword of defection clause. According to sources privy to the development, since the forward bloc has bagged more than half of the total strength of PML-Q parliamentary party, it has come into position to declare its own parliamentary leader. Now it is not under threat of being hit by defection clause if vote for the PML-N, the sources added. PML-N leaders opined that the new development had strengthened the position of PML-N in the Punjab assembly as with this arrangement it could form its government in the province without any hurdle. This will also end the politics of breaking and shaking that remained at its peak during the last few weeks, they maintained. The sources said that Laila Muqadas who formed forward bloc in PML-N and announced to have more than 30 MPAs had approached PML-N leadership to offer them olive branch. Most of the party stalwarts were of the view that as Laila Muqadas was trapped technically, so she deserved for pardon. However, no decision had been taken so far to welcome her back, the sources maintained. PML-Q forward block head Atta Makina told The Nation on Friday that the unification bloc had achieved the target of 51 per cent strength which is likely to expand further. He said, "We have finalised the plan to show our strength in a press conference likely to be held on March 30 (Monday). "Every member of the unification bloc would ensure his physical presence in the press conference so that actual number could be proved," he added. He said that there was no plan on the anvil to make joint press conference with the PML-N. We will hold the meeting and decide the new parliamentary leader after marathon consultation with the party members, he said. He further said we believed in unity of Pakistan Muslim League, so it was obvious that we would support PML-N considering it genuine a Muslim League. He said that all the member who had gone back to Chaudhrys had returned nut Allaudin. Hopefully he would also merge into unification bloc, he maintained. In another development, PML-Q forward bloc member Jalaludin Dhakoki called on PML-N president and former chief minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif at the latter's residence in Defense on Friday. During the meeting that lasted for more than two hours, they talked about the efforts stretched out to help the bloc to get the support of 44 numbers. Dhakoki said that the unification bloc would call party parliamentary meeting in next week. It may be recalled that PML-N Punjab President Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khosa, Khawaja Hassan and Capt (r) Safdar had played a vital role in supporting the forward bloc to increase its strength.
