ISLAMABAD - Defiant leaders of PML-Q here on Thursday in their meeting with Chaudhry brothers asked the latter to conduct party elections before due time and make it sure that no member of their family would be the candidate of some key slot. The sources said that Chaudhry brothers during their meeting with defiant members of the party resolved not to withdraw from the top slot of PML-Q and assured the dissident leaders that they would pacify disgruntled elements of the party. Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, president PML-Q along with Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi held meetings with Hamid Nasir Chattha, Gauhar Ayub, Humayon Akhtar Khan, Jam Muhmmad Yousaf, Lala Nisar and Salim Saifullah and requested them to dissolve the forward bloc. Sources told this scribe that in the meeting the like-minded group had asked the Chaudhrys to conduct party elections before due time and assure that no family member of Chaudhrys would contest in it for the slot of presidency.   Talking to media men after his meeting with Chaudhry brothers Salim Saifullah told the media that the meeting was held in cordial atmosphere and he had voiced his reservations openly and frankly. "I am not aspirant for any slot and I am striving to strengthen the party rather than prolonging the crisis like situation", he remarked. "Forward bloc was not supported by majority of members and only 12 to 14 members were included in it which could not change the party leadership", he said and added, "In the meeting Chaudhry Shujaat said us that he would retain the slot of president with him and he would decide about his future later", Saifullah indicated. Meanwhile, PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Hamid Nasir Chathha Thursday dispelled the impression of any rift on the party leadership in the party fold, saying that no change was being discussed and the media reports as such were "baseless and unfounded". Addressing a joint press conference here after a meeting of senior party leaders, along with Salim Saifullah Khan, Pervaiz Elahi and others, told the media that the press report about change in the party hierarchy was only a rumour and the matter was not even being "discussed" at any level. Ch Shujaat said the reports of a change in the party leadership were baseless and unfounded and there was no forward bloc in the party. "If we count the number of rebels as being reported in the media, the number would even exceed the total strength of the party in parliament. However, some individuals are fuelling rumours for petty personal gains. We believe these rumours would not support their cause and there is no need to pay heed to such gossips," he added. He said the next elections would be held in August and new President and Secretary General would be elected.  Shujaat said his party was the only political party in the country, which did not allow any president to be elected more than twice. "Contrary to other political parties which even allow life-time party chairmanship or make the parties a family enterprise, it is only the constitution of PML which restricts president and secretary general slots to only two terms," he added.
