Ghous Ali Shah changes mind about quitting PML-N

Senior leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Syed Ghous Ali Shah has changed his mind about joining Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) after Nawaz Sharif offered him party’s top slot in Sindh, a news paper reported on Saturday.

Earlier, Shah was ready to join the PTI along with some other prominent party members in Sindh after getting disappointed by the behavior of the leadership, the report added.

Ghous Ali Shah never considered abandoning the party ready to leave the party’s top position in Sindh. Nawaz Sharif, however, had nominated him as senior central vice-president against his wish. “Shah was annoyed with the party chief
after this move,” he added. 

Nawaz Sharif’s fresh offer to Ghous Ali Shah for party’s head in the Sindh chapter did a trick for PML-N, the report added.

Earlier, Wednesday, Nawaz talked to Ghous Ali Shah over telephone and promised him to redress all his grievances, offering him post according to his wishes, source informed. 

Previously, Nawaz Sharif was considering Elahi Bux Soomro and Former Governor Mamnoon Hussain to head party in Sindh. Meanwhile, Aslam Raho, Salim Zia and Imdad Chandio were also lobbying in the party for the top slot.

The report explained that party president in Sindh was a high post and new offer compelled Ghous Ali Shah to change his mind about joining PTI. “Shah cannot find similar position in the PTI at-once,” it continued.

Although Nawaz Sharif has been succeeded in keeping Ghous Ali Shah with them, the PML-N chief will be facing more problems with the other party’s leaders in the province who were hoping to grab the desired position.

After Javed Hashmi, Nawaz Sharif cannot afford to lose another prominent figure of the party.

The PTI is pulling most of the people from the PML-N and Sharif is fully cognizant that what it means especially before the elections.
