Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has refuted his brother Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain’s allegation that the former’s son Chaudhry Salik Hussain is seeking money from Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari in return for his support to the government.
In a tweet today, Shujaat said: “My younger brother Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain has talked to [the] people in our house in Gujarat. [He] has defamed a senior national level leader – Asif Ali Zardari – and accused my sons of demanding dollars [from Zardari]. If he has said this, it is very preposterous.”
Earlier, Wajahat Hussain had announced that he would launch a new political party in the country and alleged that Salik is seeking dollars from Zardari, adding that Salik has nothing to do with the politics of Gujrat.
He had added that “Tariq Bashir Cheema has divided our family while Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has been made hostage by his sons.”
It is pertinent to mention here that Wajahat’s son and MNA Chaudhry Hussain Elahi has already parted ways with the PML-Q, which is currently divided into Shujaat and Pervez Elahi groups. One group is supporting the coalition government in the Centre while the Elahi-led group is with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
