PML-Q says considering govt offer on cabinet

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League (Quaid-e-Azam) chief Chaudhry Shujat Hussain has dismissed the notion of joining federal cabinet, saying that his faction was still considering government’s offer to assume ministries, ARY NEWS reports.

“Reports are rife in media for last two weeks that PML-Q has accepted government’s offer. But all this is baseless. We are holding consultation within our party if we should join the federal cabinet,” Shujat Hussain told reporters after meeting MQM delegation at residents of his party leader Faisal Saleh Hayat.

Muttahia Qaumi Movement’s Farooq Sattar, Haider Abbas Rizvi and Babar Ghaori called on PML-Q leaders and discussed ‘current political scenario’.

When Shujat was asked about the decision to join the cabinet, he replied “Inshallah” (God willing).

On the occasion, Mr. Hayat said: “The government has offered us but we have not yet decided finally. Our objective is not to get ministries alone, but we have to chalk out a viable plan to resolve public issues, like US drone attacks, raging inflation and unemployment”.

Farooq Sattar said MQM would continue its ‘broad based consultation’ and coordination with the PML-Q on different issues of masses. “Our friendship is stronger than any alliance,” he said.
