FAISALABAD: On Sunday, Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar brushed off remarks by a Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) leader, caught on tape during a meeting between the party and the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), a day earlier.
Speaking to media on Sunday, Sarwar said PML-Q was an ally and such talks happened even in families.
The only power centre in Punjab is Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, he further asserted.
On Saturday, the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaids (PML-Q) reported differences with the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) came out as a video emerged of the formers leaders complaining to PTIs Jahangir Tareen about Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar interference in Punjab government.
The emergence of the video, released by the PML-Q media cell itself, led Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi to call a press conference to reaffirm ties with the PTI, of which his party (PML-Q) is a coalition partner.
The video showed three PML-Q leaders Elahi, MNA Tariq Bashir Cheema and Minister for Mines and Minerals Hafiz Ammar Yasir chatting with PTI stalwart Jahangir Tareen in an informal setting.
Elahi downplayed the video at a press conference later, saying it was normal for coalition partners to sit down and talk their grievances out.
Responding to a question over the video, Punjab Information Minister Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan said the video and Cheemas words were being taken out of context.
The centre of power according to the law and Constitution is Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and the chief ministers secretariat. A hundred per cent of ministers stand with the chief minister and are working under his leadership, he said.
