A video clip of meeting between Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Jahangir Tareen, Punjab Minister for Mines and Minerals Hafiz Ammar Yasir and the PML-Q leaders – Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and Federal Minister for Housing Tariq Bashir Cheema, in which PML-Q leadership expressing concern over Sarwar’s role in the Punjab government, asking Tareen to ‘rein in’ Sarwar. In the clip, Cheema complains to Tareen, “Sir, control Sarwar, he will not let your chief minister stay, ” is viral on social media. It is assumed that there are clashes between Punjab government.
“There is no rift between the Punjab Governor House and the Punjab Chief Minister Secretariat. Punjab Chief Minister Buzdar and his secretariat are the centre of power in the province,” he said. Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar on Sunday, while inaugurating a water filtration plant and a medical laboratory at the Faisalabad Central Jail, clarified that “there was no rift between him and Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar”
He claimed that the “media had given out of proportion coverage to a video clip in which Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid leaders were expressing their concerns over the governor’s role in the Punjab government”.
He said “Being Punjab’s governor, I visit every place in the province, but for some unknown reasons Cheema misunderstood my visits and thought I was trying to interfere in his constituency,” said Sarwar, adding that he met Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday, but he (Imran) did not ask anything about the video clip since it was a “non-issue”.
“The PTI government is committed to bringing a positive change in the common man’s life by ensuring effective utilisation of available resources and taxpayers’ money,” he added.
