FAISALABAD: With the local body elections approaching fast, differences among 5 PML-N leaders surface again. Five main PML-N leaders including Khawaja Asif, Ahsan Iqbal, Ch. Nisar, Abid Sher and Rana Sanaullah locked horns and leveled serious allegations against each other.
Ahsan Iqbal and Khawaja Asif’s friction was yet to be addressed when out of nowhere Federal Minister Abid Sher Ali’s father Ch. Sher Ali in a furious press conference declared war on Rana Sanaullah and his mentor CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif.
In an open public gathering Ch. Sher asserted that CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif has reposed confidence in a wrong person who has undermined the party. He openly declared Rana Sanaullah a murderer of 20 people. Playing on the front foot, he maintained that my son is ready to resign from federal govt on party’s demand but we will not compromise on principles.
In a press conference at Faisalabad, he lashes out at the PML-N policies. He said defeat of the Party head’s brother-in-law’s son and a shameful success of Ayaz Saddiq with a margin of 2200 votes at NA-122 is an open reality for PML-N to learn lessons.
“CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif has taken another negative step to increase party’s depolarization by handing over the local body elections’ decision making authority to wrong people. Gone are the days when people were used to vote for polls and parties. Now the voter is sharp enough to distinguish black and white,” he added.
“Govt. carried out multi-billion projects in Lahore but by-election results raise many doubts about PML-N popularity in Lahore. This situation is same across the country and if the matter is not taken seriously Faisalabad will only have one vote of lawless Minister Rana Sanaullah,” he added.
“We want some respect because we are Muslim League for last 60 years. Party top leadership should not insult us through junior leaders like Rana Sanaullah, Sh.Ejaz and Ilyas Ansari for Abid Sher Ali’s resignation from the federal ministry. We will resign at once if the prime minister is not involved in these affairs,” he concluded.
