PML-Q not to let N leaders flee again: Moonis Elahi

LAHORE: PML-Q leader Moonis Elahi has said that his phenomenal and extraordinary reception in Lahore was in fact agitation of the masses against “conspiring and dishonest ruling elite in the Punjab”.

He said this while addressing charged party leaders and workers on his arrival at the Allama Iqbal International Airport from Karachi on Thursday. He said that his family had given a strong challenge to their arch rival PML-N that he, along with the party men, would not give another opportunity to the PML-N top leaders to run away from the country.

Moonis Elahi, while appreciating the presence of a large number of party workers on his arrival in the provincial metropolis, said that it boosted his morale and now he would face, what he called fake or politically motivated and fabricated, cases against him.

He said that his warm welcome established the fact that the PML-Q still commanded the following of the major portion of the country’s population. The PML-Q leader said he belongs to the family which knows the tactics of facing its enemies without leaving the battlefield, while they will not provide another opportunity to their enemies to run away to Jeddah.

Moonis Elahi said that he along with his loyalists would soon expose the faces of the conspirators against him in the NICL scam.“We belong to a party which respects the courts while there is a political party that attacked the courts and believes in this practice firmly.”

Earlier, thousands of charged workers of PML-Q, along with the party leaders, received Chaudhry Moonis Elahi on his arrival at the Lahore Airport.

The party workers were carrying party flags, banners and posters having pictures of Moonis on them. They also chanted slogans in favour of their party leader and against the government ‘for hatching a conspiracy against Moonis to defame PML-Q and Chaudhries.’

The PML-Q members showered rose petals on Moonis when he reached the arrival lounge and chanted slogans in his favour. They kept on dancing to the beat of drums before the arrival of Moonis.A major number of the party members came from Hafizabad, Gujrat, Mandi Bahauddin, Kharian, Gujranwala, Jhelum, Kasur and Sargodha.

Moonis Elahi returns, vows to respond to accusers

KARACHI: Moonis Elahi Wednesday said he has no connection with the National Insurance Corporation Limited (NICL) scam case. “I am being dragged into this case,” he said while talking to media persons at the Karachi airport.

These accusations were a way to dishonour him, his family and his political party, and he came back to answer his accusers, said Moonis, who arrived in Karachi to face corruption allegations in NICL scam case. Moonis Elahi, son of former chief minister Punjab, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, was an accused in the NICL scandal case and had been granted protective bail by the Sindh High Court.

About Zafar Qureshi, the chief investigation officer of NICL case, Moonis alleged that one of his (Qureshi) brothers wanted to become the Chief Secretary of Punjab during Pervaiz Elahi’s term as Chief Minister and another brother wanted to get a PML-Q ticket.
