Sarwar, Aleem should refrain from talking against PM: Chohan


Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) from Punjab and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leader Fayyaz Ul Hassan Chohan advised on Tuesday former Punjab governor Chaudhry Sarwar and estranged PTI leader Aleem Khan to ‘not throw stones while living in a glasshouse’.

The PTI leaders remarks came following Sarwar and Aleem’s allegations against Prime Minister Imran Khan and the incumbent government, during separately held press conferences.

Commenting on the former governor’s press conference, Chohan said that he was himself removed from minister-level positions twice, but never spoke ill of the party because one has to bear all kinds of weathers for the party and its leadership.

He stated that Chaudhry Sarwar should’ve remained quiet for a few months, after he was removed as governor, and instead discussed issues with party leaders, and “maybe things would have been sorted and you [Sarwar] would have been placed in a better position”.

Chohan claimed that Sarwar had always been on a different ship and used to openly criticise former Punjab chief minister Usman Buzdar and speak against the party inside the Governor House, as well as during his foreign trips.

“You would call MPAs and tell them to join the Aleem Khan or the Jahangir Tareen factions, ask them to sway from party policies,” he alleged, maintaining that there were witnesses to these acts of his.

He further maintained that he was removed on the basis of these actions and it was wrong of him to indulge in negative, accusatory politics afterwards.

Highlighting another one of his “lies”, Chohan stated that Prime Minister Imran Khan had never pressured Sarwar to break the Punjab Assembly.

“I’m surprised at your wisdom. There is no law, no clause that says that a governor has the authority to break a provincial assembly without the chief minister advising him to do so,” he said, pointing out that Buzdar could not have made the suggestion as he was facing a vote of no-trust in the provincial assembly.
