Asserting their political wisdom for the 40th time in as many years, the Chaudhrys of Gujrat have clarified that they are coalition partners of the incumbent government and will remain so as long as the incumbent government does not become a former government.
“We were with Imran Khan and we are with Imran Khan, and about tomorrow, no one can predict,” said smiling Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, in a talk show late on Monday.
He, however, clarified that they were committed to remaining with the Imran Khan government as long as the government was intact.
“Until next elections, consider us the trustworthy coalition partners of Imran Khan but we will also consider a coalition share if the PPP, PMLN or JUIF make government,” he reasoned. He said the PML-Q was an evergreen coalition partner.
“But our coalition is limited to government benches,” he stressed his point.
Senior leader Chaudhry Shujaat, however, said some naive advisers were weakening the Imran Khan government.
“When sane leaders like Shafay Hussain, Moonis Elahi and even Chaudhry Pervaiz and myself are not picked as adviser and minister, the government continue to be surrounded by naive advisers.”
Chaudhry Moonis and Chaudhry Shafay have welcomed the interviews of Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and Chaudhry Shujaat.
