LAHORE: After MQM, another ally of PPP — PML-Q — has announced its support for Dr Tahirul Qadri’s demands for an independent and honest caretaker set-up and electoral reforms.

“We will support Dr Tahirul Qadri’s mission whether we remain in government or not,” declared PML-Q chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain after meeting the patron-in-chief of Tehrik-i-Minhajul Quran. He was accompanied by Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and Syed Mushahid Hussain.

Briefing reporters on the meeting, Mr Hussain said: “After a discussion with Dr Qadri we believe that his mission is not against any individual, but against injustices and those who do not pay taxes.”

If implemented, Dr Qadri’s proposals about electoral reforms and an independent and honest caretaker government would strengthen electoral and democratic systems, he said.—Khalid Hasnain
