Canada Global (Web News) In support of his son Moonis Elahi’s assertion that former army chief Gen. (retd.) Qamar Javed Bajwa suggested that his PML-Q party support PTI during the opposition’s no-confidence motion against Imran Khan in March of this year, Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi has endorsed the statement.
In a Sunday interview with a local TV station, CM Elahi claimed that Gen Bajwa advised him against joining the PDM alliance because he “did not trust Sharif family” and that Imran was a better choice.
Elahi claimed he was hesitant to accept the offer from the then-opposition, led by the Sharif family, to become Punjab’s chief minister in exchange for backing a motion of no-confidence against Imran Khan.
As they had previously misled him, he said, I knew they [Sharif] would not let me continue as chief minister.
The PML-Q leader claimed that his son Moonis was instrumental in persuading him to back PTI rather than the Pakistan Democratic Movement coalition.
Furthermore, Elahi said that Gen (retd) Bajwa, the then-chief of the army, had shown “him the right route” to support PTI.
