Lahore, 13 March 2023 (GNP): Former Governor Punjab, Chaudhry Sarwar, switched political parties on Saturday after meeting with PML-Q leader, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain.
The development happened after Sarwar met with the PML-Q leader at the latter’s home to talk about the nation’s political atmosphere.
On Sunday, March 12 at 1:00 PM, Chaudhry Sarwar held a press conference at the Muslim League House where he revealed the future course of action.
In the meeting, it was agreed that Sarwar would join the PML-Q and hold two positions inside the organization: the main Organizer and President of Punjab.

His potential membership in the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and PML-Q was offered to him earlier this year when the struggle for the “Punjab throne” heated during the assembly dissolution episode in January, according to sources.
According to insider sources, Chaudhry Shujaat met with the former PTI leader twice and invited him to join his party.
The former Governor reportedly joined the PML-Q two days ago, but the official announcement of his affiliation with the party was scheduled for 12th March.
“I was invited to join the Pakistan Muslim League,” he stated during a presser, adding that his first aim would be to “strengthen the party.”
He continued by saying that while in opposition, politicians seek power, but once they are in office, nobody gives it a second thought.
The former Governor of Punjab expressed his opinions regarding the Pakistan Democratic Movement-led administration in Islamabad, saying that the PDM ought to be forced to take decisive economic action.

Speaking about his achievements while serving as governor, Sarwar claimed he chose the university’s vice chancellor based on qualifications.
The politician criticized his old party’s leadership after being ousted from the Governor’s office last year, attacking its “foreign conspiracy” theory.
He pledged to support Khan despite his doubts.
“There was the prime minister on the one hand and the entire PTI on the other. Bribery has reached grassroots levels, but we vowed to stand with Khan,” he added.
