Islamabad: Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) MNA Chaudhry Salik Hussain on Thursday left the PM's chamber in anger.

According to the details garnered, PM had called Chaudhary Salik for meeting while Chaudhary went back home without meeting with the prime minister.

Chaudhry Salik Hussain waited outside the PM's chamber for a very long time. After waiting for the PM for a long time, he left the chamber without meeting him.

The prime minister's staff kept preventing Chaudhry Salik Hussain from returning.

PM’s staff while explaining the late arrival of PM mentioned that due to extensive meeting with Tariq Bashir Cheema, he became late. Even after receiving the explanation from PM’s staff, Chaudhry Salik Hussain didn’t listen to the staff and left the office in a huff.

On the other hand, Pervez Khattak has criticised PM Imran Khan during the parliamentary party meeting before a key vote on the mini-budget. The harsh words exchanged from the issue of the gas shortage in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The sources said that Khattak first exchanged words with Energy Minister Hammad Azhar and walked out of the meeting in protest.

The premier sent Ali Zaidi and Murad Saeed to bring Khattak back, but after coming back Pervez Khattak exchanged words with Imran Khan. He also said that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province produced electricity and gas but was still facing a shortage. “It is us who got you elected as prime minister,” he reportedly told Imran Khan.

Pervez Khattak said he and other leaders like him had to face voters and if the technocrats did not change their behaviour, people would not vote for the PTI.

PML-N asks for ‘deal’ for four people: Shahbaz Gill

Faisalabad: Special Assistant to PM on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill on Sunday claimed that Opposition Leader in National Assembly and former chief minister Shehbaz Sharif has asked for a deal for four people.

Addressing a press conference in Faisalabad on Sunday, Shahbaz Gill said that the PMLN was demanding that Shehbaz Sharif, his son Hamza Shehbaz Sharif, and Maryam Nawaz be allowed to leave the country. The fourth person, according to Gill, is Nawaz Sharif who is already in London.

Shahbaz Gill also said that the PMLN wants former premier Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to stay in Pakistan and lead the PMLN politics. He said that the government would not give a deal to the Sharifs.

He compared the Sharifs’ demand for a deal with deals served at restaurants. “You are confronted by Imran Khan. We won’t allow you a boiled potato or a corncob and you are asking for a chicken piece. You won’t get a deal … You can only curse and get cursed.”

Shahbaz Gill also said that the law would take its due course and Shehbaz Sharif will soon find himself behind the bars. He said Nawaz Sharif will land in jail when he return to Pakistan.

On the other hand, Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry in a separate media briefing also spoke about the Sharif family, claiming that there is a "race" underway among four leading members.

"When the four big leaders went to meet 'someone', they said that 'Nawaz Sharif did not do right by the country, why don't you consider us?'," the minister claimed further.
