With Sharif brothers in jail, PMLN start to disintegrate: Sources

LAHORE - As the Sharif brothers land in jail the elected local government representatives of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) have started contacts with PTI leadership.

Atleast 13 district council chairmen joining the ruling PTI,” many more have contacted the PTI leadership.

Sources said that the present district and union council assemblies had a lot of time to complete their constitutional tenure and the ruling PTI also wanted that the assemblies completed their legal term.

“The chairmen from various other district and union councils of Punjab have also contacted Senior Minister Abdul Aleem Khan, who assured to return them their authority and funds,” they said.

When asked about the identities of the chairmen who plan to join the ruling party, sources said they did not want to be named as of yet as all the chairmen wanted to settle their unfinished businesses first and later make the announcement themselves.

Sources were of the view that during the tenure of the PML-N government, the chairmen from different district and union councils were usually seen protesting while demanding funds and authority, but now they had been assured by the senior minister that PTI government would empower them as they were in military dictator Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf’s regime.
