The Pakistan Muslim League-Q on Saturday requested the Lahore High Court to ‘recover’ its MPAs, claimed to be held ‘hostage’ in a hotel by PML-N leader Hamza Shahbaz in the run-up to the voting for a new chief minister of Punjab.
PML-Q’s general secretary Punjab Kamal Ali Agha filed a petition through advocate Amir Saeed Rawn with a further prayer to implead the PML-Q as a respondent in the petition filed by Hamza.
Petitioner Agha prayed that Hamza and other leaders were trying to change the loyalty of their members illegally without any right, which was also against the Constitution and the fundamental rights of the applicant.
“Hamza Shahbaz Sharif made our members hostage in a hotel and they are not being allowed to meet anyone, not even their family members,” the petitioner contended
He submitted that a writ petition was filed in LHC without impleading the PML-Q as a party whereas Chaudhary Pervez Elahi was mentioned in the memo of the party as a respondent. The petitioner also requested the court to recover their members from PML-N’s illegal custody and PML-Q be made respondent in a petition filed by Hamza in LHC.
