Muttahida Muslim League leader Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali said on Thursday PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif should facilitate the Muslim League instead of other parties.

Addressing a press conference after his meeting with Sharif at Raiwind, Jamali said that he tried his best while presenting his proposal of uniting all the Muslim League factions.

However, he said that Sharif has the right to discuss issues with his party and talks will move forward once that is done.

He said that it was his desire to unite all the factions and that differences should be put aside in the interest of Pakistan.

However, earlier in the meeting, the PML-N said a merger for the sake of power is not in the national interest.

Sharif said that political parties should act under political norms. He said his party’s top priority is to address people’s problems, adding that elected representatives should raise their voice for resolving the problems of the masses.

    Another bid to ‘unify’ the different factions of the Muslim League is
    being witnessed these days under the patronage of Pir Pagara. The
    Muttahida Muslim League (MML) that has emerged from these efforts is a
    merger of four factions of the League — PML(F), PML(Zia),
    PML(Like-minded) and Awami Muslim League. Historically, the
    unification of Muslim League only comes about when some shadowy forces
    are at work. Otherwise, their practice has been to ‘unite later, split
    first’. The Muslim League has very often been the handmaiden of
    dictators and part of anti-democratic manoeuvres in our history. Under
    newly appointed president Pir Pagara, PML-Q’s dissident group who like
    to call themselves ‘like-minded’ have joined the MML bandwagon in yet
    another opportunistic move, perhaps encouraged by the ‘invisible
    angel’ friends of the Pir. It is ironic that Allama Iqbal and Jinnah’s
    Muslim League has remained hijacked by opportunists for the most part
    of our history as an independent country. These ‘men for all seasons’
    waste no time in hopping from one party to another, depending on in
    which direction the favorable wind is blowing, just to remain close to
    the powers-that-be.Recommend
