CHATTA, HAMID NASIR (1950- ) Hamid Nasir Chatta belongs to an established political family of Punjab His differences with Mian Nawaz Sharif were to shape Pakistani politics for a long time These differences were not ideological; they were the result of an intense rivalry between the two politicians, each of whom wanted to be recognized as the leader of Punjab Mian Nawaz Sharif’s effort to capture the Pakistan Muslim League (PML) following the death of its president, Muhammad Khan Junejo, in 1993 brought about a rupture between the two men Chatta left the main PML, formed his own group, and named it the Pakistan Muslim League (Junejo) (PML[J]) He went on to associate himself with Benazir Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party, which made it possible for the latter to hold power in both Islamabad, the federal capital, and Lahore, the capital of Punjab, from 1993 to 1996 However, both Chatta and the PML(J) fared poorly in the elections of 1997
