Good strategIc move by PMLN. Although I am not a big fan of Waqas Akram but this would definetly do enough to shut up the jamoora online brigade and bori mafia rants and propaganda against PMLN on forums like these and social media.

To burst PMLN's bubble, he is merely an electable; that was the only reason for his induction. Enlighten me if he holds any important position in PMLN cartel.

PML-N moves to pacify ASWJ

From Print Edition
LAHORE: In a damage control move to pacify the leadership of the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ), which is extremely offended over the PML-N leadership’s decision to let their arch political rival - Sheikh Waqas Akram -- join their party, Maulana Mohammad Ahmed Ludhianvi has been conveyed by some close aides of Nawaz Sharif that he too was not taken into confidence by the second-tier leadership before taking the decision, writes Amir Mir.
The PML-N’s decision to accept Sheikh Waqas in the party folds is quite shocking for the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat which was an ally of the Sharifs until recently and whose rivalry with Waqas is well known.
Waqas will be defending his seat in NA-89 against the ASWJ President Maulana Mohammad Ahmed Ludhianvi who had withdrawn his party’s candidate [Maulana Abdul Hameed Khalid] in favour of Shahbaz Sharif in the 2008 by-election from PP-48 Bhakar-II to ensure his unopposed election to the Punjab Assembly.
Shahbaz Sharif, who could not contest the February 2008 general elections after being disqualified by the Lahore High Court, finally became the CM on the same seat on June 8, 2008.Therefore, Maulana Mohammad Ahmed Ludhianvi feels ditched and abandoned with Shahbaz Sharif’s decision to shake hands with Sheikh Waqas.
Reacting to his rival’s joining the Nawaz League, a visibly upset Maulana Ludhianvi has observed: “It now appears to me that Shahbaz Sharif, who became chief minister of the province because of the ASWJ’s crucial support, has befooled us for five years and proved beyond any iota of doubt that he can never be trusted again”.
On his part, Maulana Abdul Hameed Khan, who withdrew in Shahbaz’ favour as an ASWJ candidate from Bhakar, has said he feels extremely hurt for having facilitated the election of someone who is a swindler and has no regard for his benefactors.
However, according to Dr Khadim Hussain Dhillon, the central secretary general of the ASWJ: “Mian Nawaz Sharif has conveyed to Maulana Ahmed Ludhianvi through inter-mediators that he was not kept in the loop and the decision was taken by Shahbaz Sharif on the insistence of people like Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Sardar Ayyaz Sadiq and Khawaja Saad Rafique”.
Dhillon said the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat leadership conveyed its extreme displeasure to Nawaz Sharif over his brother’s decision to befriend someone who has been accused of having a fake BA degree and who keeps changing his political loyalties for petty interests.
“We also expressed our concern over Shahbaz Sharif’s giving a clean chit to Sheikh Waqas by declaring him a man of character who has never indulged in corruption”.
While responding, Dr Dhillon said, Mian Nawaz Sharif has communicated to Maulana Ludhianvi through his close aides that he has great regard for the ASWJ leadership and recognizes their contribution in the un-opposed elec-tion of Shahbaz Sharif from Bhakar.
“Mian Sahib further conveyed his desire to Maulana Ludhianvi that the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat and the PML-N should work together in future also by removing their misunderstandings as had been the case in the past, especially when the general elections are approaching.
In return, the ASWJ high command has made it clear to Nawaz Sharif that if his party still wants to enjoy the massive support of the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat in the elections, a clear cut pledge should be given that the PML-N will not award its party ticket to Sheikh Waqas from NA-89 (Jhang) against ASWJ president and rather it will support Maulana Mohammad Ahmed Ludhianvi the way he had supported Shahbaz Sharif. Our cooperation with the PML-N will continue in future as well if we are given the required commitment by no less than Nawaz Sharif because we don’t trust Shahbaz anymore”.
However, the ASWJ secretary general added, “If Sheikh Waqas is given a PML-N ticket against Maulana Ludhianvi from NA-89, we will teach both the parties a memorable lesson.
“There is no way they can win this seat even if they decide to join hands against us. We have thousands of voters in almost every constituency of the South and Central Punjab and the PML-N leadership is destined to knock at our doors when the elections come.
“The workers of the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat all over Pakistan have been conveyed in clear terms that any decision to support an individual or a party in the upcoming general elections at any level and in any constituency would only be taken collectively and given final approval by none other than Maulana Ludhianvi. “Therefore, all of us should wait for his decisions”.
