When it comes to the name of this party which usually called as Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid-e-Azam (PML-Q), one encounters lots of choices e.g. PML-Quisling, King’s Party, Lota League, Chaudhary League and then also some unmentionable names.
After the return of Benazir Bhutto and Mian Nawaz Sharif, things are not rosy, chocolaty and dreamy for the PML-Q and their patrons. This party was conceived by President Genera (Retd) Pervez Musharraf, and it served him well yet it was this party which really choked his long tenure at the end as uniformed president. What else could anyone expect from the lotas?
PML-Q was the party which was 100% comprised of all the turncoats from PML-N and PPP. Almost all of them have got files in the National Accountability Bureau, and they all came under the umbrella of PML-Q in the leadership of Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain of Gujrat to get a fair share of the national pie, and that’s what they got. Where this party screwed the country at great lengths, due to the private media, nation first time in its history received a firsthand real time view of the disgusting nature of these politicians. This was the main reason the media was banned in Pakistan in the wake of emergency.
The Chaudharahat of Gujrati Chaudharies is in grave danger now as Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif have come back to the country courtesy to the king of Saudia Arabia despite of much pressure from the retired generalissimo. President Pervez Musharraf is surely not happy with the return of Nawaz Sharif, but he is not that worried, because he has now become an “elected” President for another five years, and that too with the ‘Asheerbad’ of Army and America.
Musharraf would even get advantage of Nawaz Sharif’s return as if Nawaz Sharif decides to take part in the election 2008 earlier next year, then the votes will be divided among PML-N, PML-Q, and PPP, and nobody would be able to form a pure government, and the hung parliament always suits the dictators. It greatly diminishes the chance of autonomous powers a Prime Minister may have. But the recent decision by APDM, an alliance of PML-N, JI, TI, ANP, and some other parties, of boycotting the elections has thrown the game of President in disarray, and perhaps that is why they are trying to pressurize the PML-N leadership by rejecting the nomination papers of Shahbaz Sharif.
