Maryam Nawaz turns out to be 'main spoiler' in PMLN and PMLQ talks

By Irum Saleem

PML-Q stalwart Parvez Elahi has disclosed that PMLN leader Maryam Nawaz was not in favour of giving chief minister slot. Infact she is responsible for sabotaging talks between PMLN and PMLQ. 

    The Maryam group was against obliging the PMLQ generously. She influ mced her father Nawaz Sharif and all efforts of Asif Ali Zaradri were dashed to take PMLQ onboard.

     Mr Elahi also termed Shehbaz having no power in the family. Maryam is all powerful and any efforts by Shehbaz to take Chaudhrys onboard met with a failure.

    Poor Shehbaz can’t take major decisions in the party without the approval of Maryam. 

Earlier Dawn reported that PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz is being blamed for the party losing out on the potential support of the ruling coalition’s important ally, the PML-Q.

    “A poor offer to the Chaudhrys is said to be the main reason for the allies not backing the opposition in its efforts to oust Prime Minister Imran Khan through a no-confidence motion. Nawaz Sharif and his daughter are being blamed by some leaders in the PPP and PML-N for not showing flexibility in conceding the PML-Q’s demands.”

    Quoting insiders say PPP,  Dawn says some ‘N’ leaders unhappy over Maryam’s ‘inflexibility’ in talks with ‘Q’ league. “The PML-Q leadership wanted the chief minister’s slot for the remaining term (of the incumbent assemblies), and up to 20 seats in the next term. The PPP top leadership — Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari — agreed to these demands, but the elder Sharif and Maryam were not ready to budge,” the leader disclosed, adding that the father-daughter duo had conveyed to the Chaudhrys that Mr Elahi could be considered for Punjab’s top position only for an interim period of three to five months, after sending the PTI government home. There was no final understanding between them on seat adjustment for the next polls.”

  Mr Zardari is reportedly upset with the Sharifs for not agreeing to a more lucrative offer to the Chaudhrys, which eventually resulted in the PML-Q announcing its support for PM Khan, who offered what his allies wanted.

  The huge trust deficit between the Sharifs and the Chaudhrys could not be bridged despite vigorous efforts.

    Some leaders in PMLN think Maryam will be blamed if the opposition fails to oust PM Khan. PAK DESTINY
