PMLN workers convention fight forced Nawaz Sharif torun away


PML-N workers convention ends in chaos over party election


The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) workers on Saturday rejected the provincial party polls by calling it selections of favourite ones and resorted to rumpus due to which the party chief Nawaz Sharif left the gathering without address.

On the second day of Nawaz Sharif's visit to Quetta, Sardar Sanaullah Zehri was elected as provincial president of the N-League Balochistan while Naseebullah Bazai was elected as general secretary in the provincial party vote.

A number of party workers rejected the elections of both the leaders, after which the workers were divided into two groups and started chanting slogans for and against the decision creating unrest in the ceremony.


In the wake of rumpus in the ceremony, Nawaz Sharif left the function without addressing the workers. Media were also stopped to cover the event.
Prior to attending the workers convention, Mian Nawaz Sharif met with delegation of traders and industrialists of the province. Talking to the business community members, Nawaz Sharif said that Balochistan can be metamorphosed towards better situation by setting up industries in the province. He also lamented the plight of labourers in the province.
Later on, he went to the party's workers convention, where N-League workers were divided into two groups, criticising election process of the party's new office bearers for Balochistan, saying that they don't want a selection, but election, instead.
Earlier, the party's workers, pushing the journalists back, stopped them from entering the convention in view of the argument over the nominations. The convention ended in chaos forcing Nawaz Sharif to leave the hall without delivering a word.
It is pertinent to be mentioned here that N-League activists of Balochistan have already made public that if their reservations were not addressed properly by the party leadership then they would quit the party.
It was reported that strong reservations were present among activists of PML-N in Balochistan and many were planning to quit the party while the visit of Mian Nawaz Sharif was a type of political manoeuvre to settle differences among the N-League activists but the recent rumpus in the convention showed that many activists would quit the party.
Reports say that some of the N-League activists in Balochistan have already showed eagerness to join Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) because many political leaders of various parties were joining hands with Imran Khan hoping that only Imran's PTI would bring change in the country. Masses were also saying that the incumbent democratic government has failed completely to redress difficulties of the masses.
