Musharraf’s interest in PML is very welcome: women’s wing
LAHORE: It will be a blessing for the Pakistan Muslim League if President Gen Pervez Musharraf works for its promotion after becoming a permanent member of the party, Begum Farrukh Khan, senior vice president of the PML women’s wing, and Shahana Farooqi, its Punjab president, told a press conference on Friday.
“It will be in the largest interest of the party if a person like Musharraf took interest in party matters to strengthen it across the four provinces and bring it out of its crisis,” they said.
“President Musharraf must be credited for weeding out differences between senior party leaders in just a single sitting at Aiwan-e-Sadar,” they said. They expressed confidence in the leadership of Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain.
They appreciated the president’s work for the progress and development of Pakistan and said that the PML women’s wing would welcome him if he expressed his desire to work for a party cause.
Answering a question, Begum Farrukh said that the organisational work of the PML women’s wing would be completed in districts within a week. “In provinces, the reorganisation is finished,” she said. “The central leadership has been directed to visit districts to reactivate women workers for the upcoming local bodies elections.”
In response to another question, Shahana Farooqi said that Chaudhry Pervez Elahi had set the women members target in Punjab at three million. “Women MNAs and MPAs have been told to register 160 and 80 new members in their constituencies respectively,” she said.
