ISLAMABAD: Expressing confidence with Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain on Saturday said alliance with PPP to continue in future.

Speaking to media representatives, he said his party entered into an alliance with the PPP after 40 years, which could not be broken in four days.

He said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had struck a ‘bargain’ on Punjab by signing the NFC Award and now it was taking part in protests to deceive the people.

“If the Kalabagh Dam had been built, 6000 MW of electricity would have added to the national grid,” he commented.

The PML-Q chief called for immediate steps to end the loadshedding. “We had not joined the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government due to Amir Muqam. Now a decision will be taken in consultation with provincial leaders,” said Hussain.

To a question on rental power plants, he said nothing could be said before the Supreme Court’s ruling on the matter.
