Yet Another Inqilab Down The DrainBy Rohail Butt • Jan 18th, 2013 • Category: Politics • 5 Comments
This whole Qadri saga is full of conflicts and contrasts. In the nutshell, his solo flight failed just like Imran Khan’s tsunami. Establishment now might try bringing both of them together to fully control this democratic system.
These current rulers were ex-rulers for Dr. Qadri one day ago, and then next day he was playing buddy buddy with them inside his warm and dry container, whereas thousands of shivering naive marchers started bhangra to keep themselves warm. I have immense regard for those thousands coming from different areas as they rallied for the betterment of the country, but as happens in our country, another drama ran with fanfare and then completed its age.
What Qadri achieved from this sit-in is still to be seen. No election commission was dissolved and all the government including president, premier, cabinet and assemblies are there. Elections will be held on time and these same people will again contest them. What Qadri has changed? Nothing. Zilch.
He now may very well side with Imran Khan or even with PPP if establishment strikes deal with PPP yet again come next elections.
