No meeting with Nawaz Sharif, says Pervaiz Elahi

LONDON: Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi said he is not in London to meet anyone from the Sharif family and doesn’t entertain a desire to do so.

Speaking to media, the Punjab Chief minister said his visit to London was private and there will be no political meetings.

“I am in London for around a week on break. I am not meeting Nawaz Sharif or anyone else. I have come here to meet the family of Moonis Elahi,” he said.

Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi said he had known Sharifs for too long and “after spending a lot of time one should learn and I know a lot about them. I don’t want to meet them”.

He complained that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had not given a penny to the Punjab government for floods in Rajasthan. “Thankfully Imran Khan did a telethon and we raised money for the flood victims which we are distributing through the Ehsaas programme. Now many donors are in touch with us directly.”

Reacting to Punjab Interior Minister Hashim Dogar’s statement that the Punjab government will not support Khan’s long-march call on Islamabad, Elahi said that he will see how the situation evolves and a decision will be made accordingly.
