ISLAMABAD (Eshfak Mughal):- Amid high political temperature in the country, the process of political alignments of potential parties likely to start from tomorrow might be not favorable situation Prime Minister Imran Khan who are facing No-confidence motion these days.

Initial information indicating that two coalition partners including Pakistan Muslim League-Q and MQM Pakistan are no more happy with the performance and behavior of the Prime Minister’s PTI.

A senior leadership of the PML-Q held a high level meeting in Lahore and discussed the situation created after No-Confidence Motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan and activities of the Tareen group.

During the meeting, participants concluded that no PTI ally is pleased with the federal government’s performance and that the PML-Q will have to make its own political decision shortly.

Pervez Elahi is said to have taken other government allies under his wing and has committed to making decisions in collaboration with them, the sources revealed.

According to sources, Chaudhry Shujaat was also unsatisfied with the federal government’s performance.

“We will make decisions taking into consideration the national interest and political future,” the sources quoted Elahi as saying, adding that other participants of the meeting expressed their concerns over the non-fulfilment of promises in Punjab.

Government allies are likely to make a big announcement at a joint press conference in the next two to three days, sources added.

Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed and Minister for Water Resources Moonis Elahi Saturday came face-to-face as the political tensions in the country are on the rise following the joint Opposition’s no-confidence move.

The development came after the interior minister told journalists in Quetta that he isn’t among those allies who “blackmail” Prime Minister Imran Khan for getting the Chief Ministership in Punjab.

“I am not like those who have five seats and blackmail to assume the chief minister’s office,” the interior minister said in an apparent reference to PML-Q leaders — who have reportedly demanded to de-seat CM Punjab Usman Buzdar.

The Minister said that in the phace of the no-confidence motion, he would be standing firm “like a wall” to defend the prime minister. “I am not responsible for others.”

The interior minister added that the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) was “fully” behind PM Imran Khan.

Although the PML-Q was an ally of the PTI in Punjab and the Federation but still it has not announced its decision of supporting the government yet, Rasheed’s statement today drew ire from a party leader.

In a statement, Elahi asked Rasheed not to forget his past.

“Sheikh Rasheed might have forgotten that the leaders of PML-Q today are the ones who used to give money to him while he was a student,” the federal minister added. 

In a response to the interior minister’s comments, BAP President Jam Kamal Khan said that the party takes its own decision, not Sheikh Rashid.

Amid the ongoing war of words between the government and Opposition over the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, two federal minister including SHaikh Rashid and Fawad CHoudhry tried to lower the temperature, suggesting for a “dialogue”.

Speaking to journalists in Quetta, Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed said that the government and Opposition should move towards “reconciliation”, adding that everybody should sit together and find a solution.

“The Opposition should show patience and tolerance,” he said, following the uproar that stirred after PM Imran Khan’s hard hitting speech in Lower Dir on Wednesday.

In a separate statement, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry too suggested the Opposition hold talks for the sake of democracy in the country.

He said that the ill-planned no-confidence motion of the opposition stirred up bitterness in politics.

“Democracy is not a system of extreme divisions but based on political consensus. It is not difficult to fight, but reconciliation is difficult later.”

He said politics should not be so divisive that it should become difficult to talk with each other.
