The political press in Pakistan including the electronic and print media is abuzz with overblown stories of a PPP-PML(N) rift. There are some hard feelings, but less than you’d think, given the closeness of the mutual interest, but the natural course of rival politics is taking shape in Pakistan and it’s just a matter of time before the flame war starts between the two arch-rivals in full blue moon for the eyeballs of millions of viewers.
The statement war is already going on between many second tier elements of both parties, and now the leaders have also chipped in, and it seems that the PPP has no answer for the onslaught in objective manner, but they are nonetheless busy in rendering the leadership of PML(N) disqualified.
But no one is telling them, and the other players are watching the drama with greed and anticipations from the fringes. The way to unite and internally divided political array is to identify an external threat. The threat is external to both parties, but internal to the people of this country.
