Lahore: Former , former MPA Javed Manzoor Gill, former Tehsil Nazim Tahir Manzoor Gill and Bashir Manzoor Gill from Nankana Sahib along with their colleagues have returned into the fold of Pakistan Muslim League.
They made the announcement after meeting with Pakistan Muslim League senior central leader and Deputy Prime Minister Ch Parvez Elahi and Moonis Elahi at their residence here today.
Afterwards addressing a big gathering of former Nazims and Naib Nazims, Councillors and notables of their area, they said that Ch Parvez Elahi is benefactor of Punjab, we regret the mistake of going into Tehrik-e-Insaaf and thus being away from PML for 10 months was a great torture. They said they are grateful for Almighty Allah that they have returned in the fold of Pakistan Muslim League, which is our home, under the leadership of Ch Shujat Hussain forever.
Warmly welcoming them back into PML, Ch Parvez Elahi said that our party and all of us are one political family, we do not believe in arrogance, hatred and trading in politics and have always done politics winning the hearts of the poor and common man through service. He said differences also crop up in a family, we have open hearts and those returning are our brothers and colleagues as previously. He said going away of colleagues was painful but at the same time we were sure that they would come back to their family, their home sooner or later. He said power for ever is only for Almighty Allah, there are always ups and downs in politics but steadfastness adds to honour and prestige.
Speaking on the occasion, Shahid Manzoor Gill said that Ch Parvez Elahi is his political teacher and leader and has always cared about him and sanctioned mega projects like Lahore-Mandi Faziabad dual carriageway and Faisalabad carriageway for his area. He said that Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif always treated them in vindictive manner because they were colleagues of Ch Parvez Elahi. He said that during the period of being away from the party, notables and people of the area were all along making him realize that we had made a mistake by quitting Pakistan Muslim League.
He said that Ch Shujat Hussain and Ch Parvez Elahi are great men, they have again embraced us today and we have come back unconditionally and repose full confidence in their leadership.
