KARACHI: All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) leader, Pir Pagara said on Tuesday that even though PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif has been “arrogant” in the past, he will still be extended an invitation to join the party.
Speaking to the media, Pagara also said that he was sceptical of whether the present government can complete its five year tenure or not. This statement came amid the tensions that seemed to have developed between the ruling government and the judiciary. Pagara invited all political parties other than the religious parties to join the APML.
Earlier, Pagara had stated that the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) will also join the APML in the future.
APML was formed when two factions of the Muslim League, PML-F, led by Pir Pagara and PML-Q, led by Chaudhary Shujaat Hussain decided to merge under one banner and the leadership of the former. However, there were some complications about whether the name APML could be used or not as it had already been registered by former president Pervez Musharraf’s party.
Meanwhile, senator Saleem Saifullah announced a meeting, under the leadership of Pir Pagarah, to be held in Lahore with all partners soon. The meeting is expected to decide the party’s next course of action.
