Heated Presidential Polls

Though not exactly the polls, but purchased polling is going on beyond the parliament within the contours of electoral college for the president. Pakistan People’s Party has thrown money in all the four directions and have managed to gain support of almost all the turncoats and opportunists and Fazlur Rehman of JUI-F has also agreed support them after he has been promised some lucrative post in the center and some more diesel permits.

PP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari‚Äôs bid for the presidency got a boost on Saturday when the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) and the Pakistan People’s Party-Sherpao (PPP-S) announced that they would support him in the presidential race, thus, strengthening his position in the numbers game. But that boost was imminent as now all the toadies are Musharraf are lining up behind Zardari, as Zardari is following the footstep of the erstwhile dictator.

It is correct that country’s situation is in turmoil. It is right that country is passing through a tough time and it is right that country needs reconciliation and unity, but what if the ruling party is not prepared to fulfill its promises and want to grab every post in the country?

Zardari, who placed his sister as a covering candidate for himself is now using her for his campaigning. Asif Zardari had sent his sister, along with Mehreen Anwer Raja and Farah Naz Isphahani, to get the support of Aftab Sherpao. What are the characters of these politicians.
