Shah Mehmood Qureshi's Flight To PTI

As expected, Mr. Qureshi made his much awaited decision to join, Imran Khan's PTI at Gothki. The twitter sphere went ablaze with tweeps (including myself) registering their comments. Mostly being critical of his decision to join the now perceived as the "Establishment's Party." The followers of PTI take major offense to that allegation and deny it vehemently. They attribute it to the charisma and character of our former Cricket skipper.

Ironically, Pakistan has always had a history of "King's Parties." All Muslim Leagues with the alphabet soups were the brain children of many infamous smooth operators. As a fellow blogger said , the most appropriate name of this party would be PML-I, but I digress.

Meet Barrister Nawaz Sharif

According to @etribune, Mr. Sharif has vowed to uncover all the faces behind the #memogate. He not only filed a petition in the apex court, but has promised to present some of the portions of the case, himself. Hence meet Barrister Nawaz Sharif.

So the gloves are off and it almost seems like Mr. Sharif is going for the jugular. It seems like no more friendly opposition game. The heat is on in November.

Here we have all in the opposition trying to send the government back to the pavilion. Each day a new announcement surfaces about a former politician joining the bandwagon of Imran Khan. The irony is that, all lotas and rejected politicians of old parties have found their new home, you guessed it PTI.

From the looks of it, it is becoming evident that an electoral alliance between N League and PTI is on the docket.

Au Revoir Ambassador Haqqani

A fellow blogger commented on the recent development pertaining to Hussain Haqqani's resignation as Pakistan's Ambassador to the US, "its not the end of the world." I agree with my esteemed colleague. It may not be end of the world, but it sure seems like the world around people leading the PPP government, although may not be ending but it is no longer going to be the same. Many Pakistani Americans would agree along with many Pakistanis that Haqqani sure was one of the best envoy to the US. Perhaps that was his biggest shortcoming.
