Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz Or Nisar ?
We have heard the news about grouping in the top leadership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). Shah Mehmood Qureshi, vice chairman of the party, who has severely criticized his fellow party leaders, Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar and Jahangir Tareen.
Addressing a ceremony in Lahore, Qureshi said that Sarwar has attempted to remove him from his position as vice chairman. He also said that he would part ways with politics – the day he finds himself taking party tickets from people like Jahangir Tareen and Chaudhry Sarwar.
Is anyone aware of the fact – that there is a lot bigger grouping taking place in PML-N than in PTI?
In discussions, some leaders of PML-N have shown serious concerns regarding the grouping. They say that this can damage the party’s image.
The biggest and the most powerful group in the party is led by, CM Punjab Shehbaz Sharif and the Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar. Both Nisar and Shehbaz won’t listen to anyone when it comes to running government’s administrative affairs and party in Punjab. This group is called ” The Rajpoot group.”
There is another group which is led by Mr Khawaja Asif, Khawaja Saad Rafique and Abid Sher Ali. This group is called the “Khawaja Group.” We can see both K. Asif and Ch. Nisar don’t like to see each other. Problems between these two heightened when Ch. Nisar said in a press conference that he doesn’t need to take any permission from the one who is wearing a suit and a tie to contact GHQ. Ministry of interior is directly in contact with the GHQ.
The second biggest rivalry is in Faisalabad, which is between Ch Abid Sher Ali and Rana Sana Ullah Khan. The troubles between the two parties are at its peak during the elections, whether its Zimni or Baldiati elections. More than once junior Sharif has tried to intervene between the two rivals to discuss the terms, but the results turned out to be zero.
Another issue to look upon is that, Khawaja group wants the Panama issue to shut down forever, but the case however is entirely opposite with the Rajpoot group.
Many questions were raised when the Civil Military meeting was held at the GHQ – including the top military leadership, the Federal Ministers, K. Asif, Ishaq Dar and foreign advisers were present there, but Ch. Nisar was absent however, he should have been there too – because the other main issues regarding internal security were under Nisar.
The big question is that – will the PMLN become Pakistan Muslim League Nisar or will it remain the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz?
