LAHORE: Chief of Pakistan Muslim League- Quaid (PML-Q) Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has again been elected as president of the party unopposed, Express News reported on Thursday.

Simultaneously, Mushahid Hussain Syed has been re-elected as Secretary General of PML-Q unopposed during the intra-party elections.

Intra-party polls are being conducted in various parties since the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) made them mandatory for parties who want to contest upcoming elections.

Chaudhry Shujaat has held the post since the establishment of the party. Chaudhry Pervaiz was elected unopposed as president of the Punjab wing of the party yesterday.

    One Chaudhry has called himself as President and other as President of Punjab chapter. They should be ashamed of themselves calling this an election in Tanga party.

    On February 27, 2013 the news was that (chota chaudhry) Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi has been elected (rather selected) PML-Q President and on February 28, 2013 the news is that (barra chaudhry) Chaudhry Shujaat has been elected (rather selected) ‘unopposed’ President of PML-Q.

    Whichever Chaudhry is the President-select of PML-Q, the party has gradually become a tonga party since it was carved out of PML by General Ehtisham Zameer (DG-ISI) during the dictatorship of General Pervez Musharraf.

    Chaudhry’s of Gujrat have already lost their political value in Pakistan when PML(Q) was completely wiped out in the last general elections held in the country in 2008.

    Both Chacha and Bhatija again got down graded when they left General (R) Pervez Musharraf alone (though both of them were every thing due to General (R) Pervez Musharraf only) and when he (Pervez Musharraf) went to UK, both the Chaudhry’s made an alliance with PPP, so that Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain (Chacha) who once became Prime Minister of Pakistan for three (3) months should also provide opportunity to Chaudhry Pervez Elahi (Bhatija) to become the Deputy Prime Minister of Pakistan.

    Both Chaudhry’s of Gujrat have no moral values and they can become President of the PML(Q) or of Punjab Chapter only, so that they should keep on hanging for giving interviews on the local TV Channels 24/7 as well as 365 days in a year.
