Foreseeing early general elections in the country, President of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has said that his party is ready to go into the elections any day.
While talking to reporters at the Sukkur Airport on Friday, the PML-Q chief said that he is ready for a seat adjustment with the Pakistan Peoples Party in the next elections.
Replying to a question about the possibility of a unification of all factions of the Muslim League, Hussain said that the present situation of the country calls for all parties, not just the Muslim League, to unite.
Hussain, who was flanked by Mushahid Hussain Syed, Ghous Bux Mahar and Haleem Adil Shaikh, said that he does not consider Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan a threat to his party, and is rather ‘happy’ over the induction of new faces in politics.
Talking about former president Pervez Musharraf, he said that Musharraf would not come to Pakistan.
Hussain was on his way to Pir Jo Goth to condole the death of Pir Pagara with his son and the new Pir Pagara Syed Sibghatullah Shah Rashdi.
Paying rich tributes to Pir Pagara, he said that the spiritual leader of the Hur community was a multi-dimensional personality and was sincere in making efforts to unite all the factions of the Muslim League.
“I am hopeful that the new Pir Pagara Syed Sibghatullah Shah Rashdi will continue his deceased father’s mission,” he said.
