PTI and PAT seem like zig-zag or Rukhsana-Durdana.
The cat is out of the box and so is the mouse. Qadri was sandwiched between Qureshi and Hashmi; all three oozing foam from their mouths against election commission. Both don’t have any representation in the assembly, yet PTI was on board during formation of this ECP, but now on signal from GHQ, they have opened fire.
The sponsored exhaustive media coverage for Tahir ul Qadri actually backfired. Due to 24/7 cameras and continuous talkshows, Qadri’s past and then conflicting present dented his credibility irreparably. That was the reason that PTI didn’t attend the Qadri sit-in. Otherwise the plan was that Imran and his twitter brigade would join the sit-in on third day.
But now as Imran party clearly see their defeat in the next elections, they are trying to delay it. Why all of a sudden ECP is not acceptable to PTI? Why all of a sudden a change of heart for Qadri? It’s unconstitutional to demand alteration in the ECP, and even if we go that way, it would only delay elections which would only make establishment happy.
The only way Imran can every become Prime Minister, Javed Hashmi CM of Punjab, and Qureshi deputy Prime Minister plus foreign minister is that establishment support them and give them some short cut. Qadri is also eying the religious ministry. So no wonder they all have joined hands.
