GUJRAT: Former Punjab chief minister and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf President Chaudhry Parvez Elahi has apparently resumed his political activities by meeting different party delegations and local supporters in his hometown here on Saturday.

Flanked by his spouse Qaisara Elahi, sister-in-law and cousin Sameera Elahi and son Rasikh Elahi, Parvez Elahi arrived at family’s Zahoor Elahi House in the city where a large number of local PTI workers accorded him a rousing reception.

This has been his first visit to Gujrat since his release from the jail last month after almost one year detention in different cases.

Former elected representatives from the Elahi camp and officials of party held meetings with him but he did not deliver any speech on the occasion though he spent at least four hours with them. Sources said he acted as an attentive listener for most of the time.

He is expected to hold more meetings with the supporters on Sunday (today) afternoon.

They said that the former CM might stay in his son Moonis Elahi’s Kunjah house near Gujrat for at least four to five more days along with the other family members.

It is learnt that he also hosted a dinner for former PTI lawmakers and ticket-holders from Gujrat district at the Kunjah House on Saturday night where matters pertaining to park affairs and recently held general elections also came under discussion.

Parvez has been keeping quite since his release from the jail and did not even spoke to media.
