Qadri wrap-up isn't a victory fr govt. It has damaged Shrifs beyond repair even though they might look to have survived the onslaught.
They are collective evidence of state injustice, govt oppression and a so called opposition that shines its fortunes on others' graves.
But in the end Model Town tragedy affectees remain tragic victims of power politics. Those families have been ruined.
Its foot-dragging on FIR issue and then making it part of political negotiations showed bad intent and heartlessness.
By doing neither govt has shown callousness and criminal neglect. It hs shown it jst doesn't care.
I have consistently said and still say CM Shehbaz shud step down over Model Town tragedy and tht the cmns report be released forthwith.
Govt thinks Qadri wrap-up as victory nt realizing cost to its credibility, repute and ability to govern.
Such is the fate we have reduced ourselves.Such the depths we now love to fall to.
So the circus will continue in another form,under a different guise but with the same performing pack.
He will lie more.Mislead more.Pretend more.And u know what? Some of us will still say " wow" what a man g"?
But he won't apologize.He won't regret.He will spin more yarn about change history.
Qadri shud apologize to all those he lied to, cheated, whom he accused cursed falsely n to those he caused untold pain, misery and death.
1/2 to and misled? When will we stop hoisting pretenders to the pedestal of heros and quaids?
1/1 Recall all that fraud that praded as a saviour and see the end and ask: when will we stop being fooled, made a joke out of, being lied
Think about dug up graves and vows to die but not leave. The renaming of D-chowk as Tahrir square and Revolution garden.
Remember also all those analysts, and so called anchors, weathermen and weather-girls who said this is all here to stay.
Recall also media frenzy,hype,and frothy reporting with glut of "sure-shot news of success of Qadri's revolution"
Just recall all that he promised,swore by,propagated,threatened and predicted and then see the end.
Qadri dharna,long over practically,is now being folded up formally.
Metros and airports are useless frm public satisfaction point of view.Health, education,security and jobs.That's development.Thats democracy
It is no longer relevant what govt thinks is an imp project. Money has to be put where public's mouth is.
Unless projects that directly affect people's live are introduced, the word democracy will stay hijacked by slogan-mongerers.
If we can get motorcycle plants to be established in Pakistan, why can't we have water-purification plants established.
I am thinking of our villages and towns: purify water, remove 60 pc of disease from the scene.
Their water purification plant is wrkng miracles in Africa.800 households benefit frm a 20x20 sq ft simple technology
Jst 3 per cent Yamaha production is in Japan. 97 pc overseas. Lesson: location doesn't matter. Production does.
At factories like Yamaha there r procedures to save every second of every minute.
Because I am traveling ,won't be doing this week's shows.
How we damage ourselves and rejoice in self-infliction. And how other nations look at us and ask "what on earth is wrong with them"!
Names with-held but at least thee multinational reps have told me about canceling investment plans for at least a year.
By the way Japanese companies planning investment in Pakistan are worried sick over political instability and dharnaz.
It is not just about having resources. It is about sincerity of purpose and a commitment to get things done.
Work done in 3 years is truly amazing. We can learn so much from their work ethic, and planning.
En route to Japan's city of Sendai, hit by tsunami 2011, studying how they manage post-disaster situations.
2014 Pakistan has more revolutionaries and reformers than the world has seen since 1789. They r cmng out of our ears:D
Also Bilawal, like Imran, sounds bitter, divisive, derisive---un- appealing strategy in a fragmented environment.
Bilawal can't emulate Bhutto without ZAB's thought process. Sounding like Bhutto is one thing, thinking like him is another.
Hoevr, fr revival PPP needs much more than shrieking assaults on PTI. It needs deep reform, focus, agenda.
In PPP jalsas cameras search for empty chairs, bt in dharnaz the same channels only showed filled up spots! And they say we are fair!
Verbal battles now define politics, bt media's role too is v interesting.
Will Mr Dogar be also asked to tender his resignation immediately after taking membership oath?That will be some sight.
Interesting situation: Imran is sending with Jubilation Mr Dogar into an assembly from where he is asking existing members to resign.
But for Hashmi it is grand set-back.Let us see how and if he recovers from it.For PPP,well,unmitigated disaster.
And yes this election was held in the presence of CM-PM Sharifs.How come it is free,fair and its result acceptable to PTI?
PTI retains thru a front candidate a seat it already had.Good for the party,but how is this a revolutionary change?
Police takes charge of Const Avenue. PAT check-posts gone. Imagine! Our success is to reclaim our own roads! Hw sad.
Is Dogar less daghi(tained) than Hashmi? Why couldn't PTI find a young,dynamic candidate? What has really changed?
PTI backs Dogar,who abandoned PPP, to teach a lesson to Hashmi, who left PTI!
These polls are very strange. PTI send plague on electoral system but takes Multan b-polls seriously.
