LAHORE - Despite the fact that the PML-N has shown no interest and the Chaudhrys have also distanced themselves from the moves to unify all groups of the Pakistan Muslim League, Senator Salim Saifullah Khan, the president of the Likeminded faction, believes that a situation is fast approaching when leaders of all groups will be left with no option but to review their thinking and get united in the larger national interest. Salim Saifullah talking to TheNation on Sunday said, If the country is to be saved, all PML factions will have to get united. He said if Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto could sit together and sign the Charter of Democracy, then all PML leaders could also join hands, rising above their personal interests. He said differences among the PML leaders were not as serious as were between Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto. Time is a great healer, he said, implying that differences among various PML leaders would get settled after sometime. The PML Likeminded leader said he had been meeting the PML-N leaders, including Senator Ishaq Dar and Raja Zafarul Haq and discussing the unification issue with them. Also, he said, he had met Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif three months back and would meet him again if the situation required. The leader from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa said if necessary he would also meet former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. It may be recalled that the PML-N is willing to accept various PML-Q leaders back to the party fold, but is in no mood to join hands with those who have been close allies of Gen Musharraf. Salim Saifullah said permission granted to former Rawalpindi Nazim Raja Javed to rejoin the PML-N was indicative of a shift in the thinking of the party leadership. He supported the idea of a Charter of Pakistan floated by Nawaz Sharif. The Likeminded leader said he had been underlining the need for a roadmap for the country for quite sometime. In his opinion, the harmony of thought could bring the two sides closer. All parties should sit together and decide the priorities for the country in the prevailing situation, Salim Saifullah Khan concluded.
