Soon after the Supreme Court’s decision, the celebrations have been started at the residence of Chaudhry Parvez Elahi of Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) in Islamabad, Lahore and Gujrat on Tuesday night.
PTI Chairman Imran Khan also phoned Ch Parvez Elahi and congratulated him on his win in court. Parvez Elahi’s son Moonis Elahi along with some legislators of the PML-Q also called on Imran Khan and shared greetings at Bani Gala. Imran Khan heard the SC's decision on television at his residence.
According to the 24News HD TV channel, party leaders and workers including Amir Sultan Cheema congratulated Parvez Elahi to become Punjab Chief Minister at his residence in Islamabad.
Sweets were distributed among the gathering at the Elahi’s residence while the allied party—the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders including Mehmoodur Rasheed and Sadia Sohail Rana also shared their greetings with the winning candidate.
Workers of the PTI gathered outside the Supreme Court expressed their happiness by dancing on the drum beats and chanting slogans in favour of their party, Imran Khan and Ch Parvez Elahi.
On the win of Punjab, former Information Minister Fawad Chaudhary has said that they will now topple the federal government whenever they want.
Fawad Chaudhry congratulated the people of Punjab on the SC’s decision in favour of their candidate Parvez Elahi and said PTI has not taken any decision to return to the National Assembly yet.
While former Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad has said that a three-member bench including the Chief Justice of Pakistan gave a historic decision on Elahi’s constitutional petition against the rulers.
Sh Rasheed said the conspiratorial group held an abusive press conference in the Prime Minister's House early today and used improper language against the courts.
The former minister said the occupying group that attacked the Supreme Court has been defeated. He saluted PTI Chairman Imran Khan and Chaudhry Parvez Elahi, whose hard work made this win possible.
