PML-Q leader Moonis Elahi on Saturday said that the letter Shujaat had sent to the deputy speaker instructed the party MPAs not to vote for either of the candidates. “During our conversation, he said that he wanted Parvez Elahi to become the chief minister but not as Imran Khan’s candidate,” he said while talking to the media. “To this, I told him that in this case, Parvez Elahi would lose the elections,” Moonis continued, adding that he had requested Shujaat to reconsider his decision but “there was a lot of pressure on him”. Earlier, a special court confirmed pre-arrest interim bail of Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid leader and former federal minister Moonis Elahi in a case registered by Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on charges of money laundering in a sugar scam.
