oh yaar, iss se pehlay aap kichar mein paaon marnay ki koshish karain... app ki poori pipli-ya-abad basti is kichar ke neechay abaad hai... apnay kichar hum peh mut uchalain... meharbaani...

this is your reply?

You requesting me not to ask question?

I am not even counting dozens other properties...just want to know who owns Imran's Islamabad's home?

or who pays the property tax of his house?

or who's name he got the electric meter?

if Imran did not mention his home while declaring his assets..than in my book he is worse than sharifs and zardaris as Zardari/sharif never said that "Mein hamesha quoum se sach boolon ga"

and if Ik using some technical loophole is in the process and not declared his home...then, he is just same like others...

and got no moral ground to call zardari / sharif corrupt.

This ad can be used both against PPP and PMLN. PML N are trying to achieve the glory by falsely portraying 1998-99 as a gold period by focusing on motorways and Nuclear missile, but the ground realities we all know were different, qarz utaro mulk sawaro scheme, closing down all power projects, etc.

PPP can't use this for obvious reasons because they were in power now forget what BB did 15 years ago.

Win Win for PTI

^^^^ only prob i see is that we can have 1000's of voters in one area and win by a huge huge margin say 150000 voters to 50000 by opposition, however, at the other side, we can have zero voters or less and lose as well... thats just to say the numbers...


but i do agree with the fact that if the voter turn out is greater than 60%.... inshallah we will see PTI in power...

Most of the Tehreek-i-Insaf leaders are against allowing their vice chairman, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, to contest election from two constituencies in Sindh as an independent candidate, according to PTI sources.

Although Mr Qureshi at a recent press conference claimed that PTI chief Imran Khan was very much on board about his decision to file nomination papers for NA 228 and NA 230 as an independent candidate, the party has yet to make a formal announcement on the move.

Shafqat Mahmood, a PTI spokesman, only said the decision was part of a special arrangement for contesting elections in Sindh. He parried a question whether other party leaders or ticket holders would be afforded a similar generosity by the leadership.

When confronted with a similar question earlier this month in Karachi, Imran Khan failed to justify the reason for allowing Mr Qureshi to go solo in Sindh. Instead, he said it wasn’t a serious issue; after all he was vice chairman of the party. “Even if Mr Qureshi contests the election on a party ticket or independently, the seat will remain with the PTI,” Mr Khan was quoted as saying.

“A majority of us are not happy with Mr Qureshi’s decision to contest the election as an independent candidate,” said a senior party leader who is also member of the PTI’s board entrusted with the task of awarding party tickets.

“What a paradox that Mr Qureshi had announced his decision to join the PTI at a massive rally in Sindh on Nov 27 last year and now he is contesting the election from the province as an independent candidate,” said the leader.

“The move will definitely not send a good message to voters and PTI activists who are working day and night for a much-needed change in the country,” he added.

Talking to Dawn, a party member said the matter had been taken up at meetings in Islamabad in which Mr Khan preferred to keep quiet instead of defending Mr Qureshi’s decision.

The party’s media wing, which otherwise has been forthcoming in replying to journalists’ questions, is in a quandary over the matter. “Yes, we find ourselves in an awkward position when media personnel ask questions about Mr Qureshi’s decision,” the party official added.

One plausible explanation given by a PTI leader about the decision was local dynamics in the two Sindh constituencies. The PML-Functional chief, Sibghatullah Shah Rashidi (Pir Pagara), was willing to support Mr Qureshi only if he joined the former’s political alliance in Sindh against the PPP, the PTI leader said.

The PTI has announced that it will not be part of any political alliance and contest the elections alone. The party might have opted for a seat adjustment with the PML-F, but it was not possible because of the latter’s alliance with the PML-N. “This is the only explanation which Mr Qureshi can offer to his party colleagues, although the PTI has yet to clarify the mystery in so many words in the media,” the official said.

Another explanation is that because of the tough competition in NA 148, Multan, his home constituency, Mr Qureshi does not want to take any risk and has decided to contest the election from the Sindh constituencies where he has followers of his ancestors and the PML-F’s support can earn him an NA seat.

PTI declares candidates for four Okara NA seats


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has confirmed its tickets for four out of five National Assembly constituencies in the district, besides announcing its candidates for various provincial assembly seats.

In NA-143, the PTI confirmed ticket to Mehmoodur Rehman Khan Lashari, a lawyer. He had contested 2008 election from PP-185 on Pakistan People`s Party ticket.

Sources say Lashari had actually been seeking PPP ticket for the constituency while the PTI was looking for a suitable candidate for NA-143. So, they say, the party and the man suited each other.

In PP-185, Mian Anwar Pasha had been confirmed as PTI candidate. The party ignored the former MPA, Malik Akram Bhatti, for the constituency who will now contest election as an independ-ent candidate.

In PP-189 the PTI ticket went to Chaudhry Masud Shafgat Rubera, belonging to politically influential Rubera family. In NA-144, the PTI has confirmed ticket to Rao Khalid Mustafa, while for PP-190 it chose Chaudhry Muhammad Azhar who is also district president of the party.

In PP-191 the PTI has confirmed Qari Hafizullah Baloch as its candidate.

Baloch is the party`s district general secretary.

In NA-145 the PTI confirmed its ticket to Ali Husnain Naqvi, while in PP-186 it awarded ticket to Chaudhry Wasi Tahir.

In PP-187 the pary has yet to announce its candidate.

In NA-146, the PTI confirmed ticket to Prof Abdur Rauf Dola, while for PP-192 the party confirmed Chaudhry TariqIrshad Khan as its candidate, ignoring former MPA Malik Nazar Fareed Khokhar and Mian Sanaullah Dola. After being refused the PTI ticket, both joined Dr Abdul Qadeer`s Tehrik-e-Tahafuz-ePakistan party.

In NA-147 and PP-193 the PTI ticket had not been confirmed to any candidate.

PTI enters Muzaffargarh polls race, fields candidates



The Pakistan TehreeleiInsaf has entered the electoral politics of Muzaffargarh with the nomination of its candidates for NA-178, PP254, PP-255 and PP-252. All nominees are defectees from PPP and PML-N but are potential electables and likely to put up a tough contest.

For NA-178, the PTI has awarded ticket to Mian Sajid Naeem Qureshi, brother of former state minister Engineer Shahid Jameel Qureshi. Sajid had first applied for a PML-N ticket but after refusal moved to the PPP that gave him the ticket since its former MNA Jamshed Dasti had announced to leave the party.

His stint with the PPP was just six days old when PML-N disappointed Nawab Iftikhar Ahmed Khan also who turned to former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani. The PPP welcomed Iftikhar with open arms since Gilani had visited Said Nagar and at a meeting celebrated the Nawab family`s joining of the PPP.

Resultantly, Sajid Naeem was refused the ticket that lefthim nowhere. He contacted the PTI and with the blessings of Nawabzada Mansoor Khan, the eldest son of Nawabzada Nasrullah Khan, got the ticket for NA-178. This would be the fist time Qureshi and Nawab are contesting elections for the same party.

Nawabzada Mansoor, who is contesting for PP-256 and NA179, has a considerable vote bank in NA-178 and the Qureshi family has a strong hold in the rural union councils.

The PTI awarded the ticket for PP-254 to Sardar Abdul Hayee Dasti, who is the nephew of former Punjab minister late Sardar Amjad Hameed Dasti. He had also applied for a PML-N ticket and had been tipped as the likely candidate of the party for the last three years but was refused at the eleventh hour. He then contacted Nawab Mansoor and got the PTI ticket. Now, Sajid Qureshi for NA-178 and Nawab Mansoor and Hayee Dasti for PP-256 and PP-254, respectively have emerged as a strong group.Hayee contested the 2008 elections for PP254 as an independent candi-date but lost to the PPP`s Irshad Sial. However, he won from all Muzaffargarh city union councils. He is being seen as a tough competitor for the PML-N candidate for PP-254, Hammad Tipu, who is a newcomer. Tipu was awarded the ticket for being a committed PML-N worker. The DastiQureshi combination in PP254 is also worrisome for the PPP`s Irshad Sial who is concentrating on rural areas of the constituency.

The PTI has awarded ticket for PP-255 to former union council nazim Iqbal Pittafi.

He would be facing PPP`s Nawazish Qalandrani, PMLN`s Farooq Khar and Jamshed Dasti-backed Alamdar Husain Qureshi.

However, for NA-177, the PTI is still undecided between Mian Zulfiqar Ali Qureshi and Rana Mahboob Akhtar and a final decision is likely on April 16 (tomorrow).

The party has fielded Shahid Mustafa Qureshi for PP-252.

The PTI had already announced Nawab Mansoor Khan for NA-179 and Jameel Bukhari, a former PML-N MNA, for NA-180.

Dissapointed to see IK not going up against Nawaz Sharif in Lahore. If he is a circus lion then you guys needed to confront him at his base. The urban areas in Punjab should be PTI's best chances to gain seats but looks like you guys are very disorganized right now. Most places don't even have candidates announced and from what I'm hearing the emphasis has been on TV ads instead of the usual local ground level campaigning.

And last but not the least Pakistani is a jazbaati qaum anyway. Someone who follows cricket and posts on a forum shouldn't be asking this. One match we have threads like Umar Gul is Awesome and next match we will bump up threads like Gul is awful. That's how we are.

There is nothing wrong with constructive criticism. if a supporter feels that something is not being done well he/she has a right to criticize. That's democracy.

And last but not the least Pakistani is a jazbaati qaum anyway. Someone who follows cricket and posts on a forum shouldn't be asking this. One match we have threads like Umar Gul is Awesome and next match we will bump up threads like Gul is awful. That's how we are.

acting like a wrist-slitting emo is hardly constructive, just makes one looks like an idiot.


the future of Pakistan depends on this election campaign bhai. The excitement/anxiousness is understandable :dav

Yeah democracy to all the PTI supporters. PML(N) supporters only care about their royal family and their children and in making sure the the sharif khandan is making all the money it needs to.

Game changers: Imran injects ‘fresh blood’ into national politics

ISLAMABAD:
Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan lived up to his word.
He had promised to introduce fresh blood into Pakistan’s politics, which has been monopolised for decades by feudal lords and capitalists. And he did just that.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) took ‘remarkable risks’ and awarded 80% of party tickets to political new comers instead of relying on ‘electable’ candidates. The party, however, has full faith in these ‘non-electable’ candidates and hopes to sweep next month’s parliamentary elections.
“We have awarded over 80% tickets to the non-electable who have never been a part of any assembly,” said Imran while announcing party tickets for the youth on Monday. “The PTI is making history today by allotting 35% of tickets to the youth. And this will, of course, make a ‘Naya Pakistan’,” he said.
Imran said his party would field 800 candidates across the country. Of them, over 600 are debutantes – and 35% are below the age of 40, he added.
He also appealed to the nation to contribute to the ‘Naya Pakistan Fund’ which has been set up to finance the election campaigns of young PTI candidates. “They [the youth] are the game-changers and want revolution through the ballot,” he said. He revealed that 250 candidates of his party have not enough resources to run their political campaigns.
“It was difficult to pick out 800 candidates from 6,000 applications,” he said. “Now, a new leadership can fix the state institutions. The nation will fight a decisive battle for a new system,” he added. The party has awarded around 80% of tickets on the recommendations of its district organisations.
“We had decided that tickets would not be awarded to the relatives of party leaders. I vetted the list [of aspirants] myself to rule out nepotism in the award of tickets,” he added. He said that ideological politics came to an end in Pakistan in 1985 – but the PTI wanted to revive it. “Now, Pakistanis want to rid themselves of the two traditional political parties, PML-N and PPP,” he said. The two parties had been partners in the Punjab government for three-and-a-half years while they had been partners in Balochistan till date.
“In fact, they are one on all issues. PML-N leaders have said on record that they helped the PPP-led government to complete its tenure. Now, the PML-N wants to take its turn. The nation will not allow them to play musical chairs,” he said.

Against all odds, Imran has awarded 25% tickets to educated youth. Let's hope the "tabdeeli razakars" stress on this point as a lot of people use "old faces" excuse.

what do you think, the PPP will be wiped out? they will always have support, they have an emotional bond with the people throughout Pakistan that no other party can even dream of having.

Plus their biraadri system links, those bonds are near impossible to break.

PTI may have a lot of support but the ability to get VOTES is quite something else. They are an unknown and their success depends a lot on the voter turnout.

if the only sticking point you have left is the 'credibility of the survey' then that is pretty weak.

No I don't think PPP will be wiped out but we are talking about the significant increase and decrease in popularity among masses through out pakistan (excluding their permanent jiyalas). On what basis PPP popularity increased in last one year? The survey is done in march when the loot and plunder was at peak. Do you sincerely believe that ppp manage to attract more support for their performance in 2012, when many of their jiyalas came running to PML-N seeing the little chance in 2013 election for ppp?

PML-Q is in turmoil and almost non existing as a party and yet it is as popular as PTI?

I can understand that for you these figures are believable otherwise it would be hard to defend noon at top.


PTI may have a lot of support but the ability to get VOTES is quite something else. They are an unknown and their success depends a lot on the voter turnout.

I know how N league suppporters take infrastructure...Is only buliding roads the infrastructure....?Yes bulid the roads,thus allocate funds to lawmakers...and then the lawmakers hardly spend half of it on Public....Not to say that buliding roads should not be Lawmakers job in the first place...

I wont name here but i know a politician from Gujranwala who left PTI to join N league because he was given 4 carore for this so called development budget...But the roads were already completed by other politician...

And talking about infrastructure....Does sasti roti scheme,Laptops,taxi schemes improve infrastructure..?They have spent billions during their last rule in Punjab on these infrastructure schemes....But children are studying in graveyards,many schools do not have boundary,toilet,furniture or teachers..Their vision and policies starts from laptops,taxis and sasti roti and finish on roads or transit train systams......

In the Feb 2013 survey by the same agency, PTI had 32% support in KPK..

Now in their Mar 2013 survey, PTI has 11% support in KPK?

Even the harshest of critics of PTI, and the biggest of supporters of PML (N) would raise a question mark on the accuracy of this survey no?

PML (N) doesnt even have enough candidates to cover the whole of KPK and their support there has increased? I really doubt it. and what could be the reason? If anything, PTI support should have increased a couple of percent instead of dropping a whopping 22% for no obvious reason?

I cant say I trust Gallup Pakistan much.

^ The status co won't let it happen. This is how they are looting the country in the name of democracy.

Ideally the voting should be must by law and citizens should be forced or assisted in doing so (like in Turkey). Secondly if no one has gained 50% of the caste votes then re-election should be done. Only with these two basic rules the true democracy can be achieved.

Alternatively direct election should be conducted for the President, PM, CM and then let them make their own cabinets. Less costly and simple!

^Pakistan should implement Proportional Representation system

PR would result in a permanent state of coalition government and more political horse trading that is disliked. FPTP is also a failed system, what would be ideal is some sort of hybrid system where there is a degree of proportionality in the results whilst maintaining local constituencies.

CHARSADDA: Local Awami National Party (ANP) leader Farooq Khan was targeted in a bomb blast in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Charsadda region on Wednesday, DawnNews reported.

The blast occurred in the Sardehri area of Charsadda near the vehicle carrying Khan who escaped unhurt.

Khan is the Vice-President of ANP in the constituency of PK-17 and is also the coordinator of ANP President Asfandyar Wali Khan’s election campaign.

Earlier on Monday, a suicide bomber targeted a rally of senior ANP leader and former railways minister Ghulam Ahmed Bilour in Peshawar. He sustained minor injuries.

Seventeen people, including three children and six police personnel, were killed in that attack, while 64 were injured. Nineteen of the injured were still under treatment at the Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar, where the condition of two wounded was reported as critical.

A FIR of the attack was registered at the Kotwali Police Station on Tuesday.

A special investigation committee led by SSP Masood Khalil was formed to probe the incident. According to initial reports, the suicide bomber was aged between 20-25 years.

There has been an increase in act of terrorism weeks before the May 11 elections and ANP leaders have been especially targeted in these.

Previously, ANP leaders Syed Mukarram Shah and Syed Masoom Shah were targeted in two separate attacks.



I can't see how these elections will take place when bombs are going off everyday. innocent voters will end up dying in the masses and to make things worse, they'll probably be rigged so the vote won't even count. turnout's going to be very low if they do go ahead unless the security situation improves which is highly unlikely

Disgruntled PTI workers attack Imran's residence


PTI spokesperson says unknown miscreants broke into the residence.


ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – More than 100 enraged workers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf protested against the unjust distribution of party tickets in Khyber-Pakhtunkhawa.


They broke the main gate of the residence of PTI chief Imran Khan in Bani Gala and entered the house.


The protesters also tried to enter the family quarters but the personal guards of Imran Khan called in the police and pushed the enraged workers out of the house.


Imran Khan’s spokesman Naeemul Haq held federal interior minister responsible for the situation. He said security was not provided to Imran Khan by the federal government despite the threats to him.


Talking to Dunya News, PTI’s Spokesperson Shireen Mazari condemned the incident and said that security was not provided to Imran Khan. She also held the caretaker government and interior minister responsible for the incident and demanded resignation of the minister.

You can donate money from the webpage insaf.pk. If your proceed automatically to their election website and click on "naya pakistan", you can donate money there easily using pay-pal. I just donated $100. I was hoping to donate about 15000 rs but there is no option for that:-(

Today I read the article of Haroon-ur-Rashid and was really disappointed. After that I read your comment where you are only expecting PTI to win 40+ seats. I really hope that in the future guys like you who are our source of information can be more enthusiatic to keep our morals up. Actually I would like to ask the mods to let insaftak have his own section on this website where you can keep on informing us overseas insafians of whats going on at the ground level of Pakistan.

Hafeez Ullah Niazi is annoyed that Inam ullah Khan Niazi has not been given a ticket for Mianwali where Ayesha Malik I think got the ticket. The problem is that HR and Hafeez Ullah should act like responsible people and not damage the election campain of PTI at this time. This is a time where everyone who are against the leadership qualities of PPP and PML(N) should wholeheartedly support PTI and ignore their pity issues.

LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) has reportedly withdrawn party ticket from party’s Punjab president Ejaz Chaudhry allegedly on the charges of bank default. Mr Chaudhry, who himself was member of party’s central parliamentary board, was awarded ticket for PP-148.

When contacted, Mr Chaudhry said that his party ticket had so far not been withdrawn but he would obey party decision. “If my party ticket is withdrawn, I will not withdraw my nomination papers from the Election Commission to express that my moral position is clear,” he asserted.

Interestingly, now Punjab and Lahore district’s elected presidents are not in the run for general election and will be “supervising party’s election campaign in Punjab and Lahore”.

At a ceremony to award party tickets to PTI Lahore candidates, the party gave first surprise as the Lahore finalists did not include district president Abdul Aleem Khan, who was hopeful for two constituencies – NA-127 and PP-147. Both of these seats were given to his close aides Nasrullah Mughal and Shoaib Siddiqui, who were earlier not shortlisted earlier and Aleem Khan had went into a protest mode.

However, Aleem called his ouster from run for general election for a bigger role as supervising the election campaign of all 13 National Assembly and 26 Punjab Assembly constituencies.

Similarly, the party candidates state that Ejaz Chaudhry’s ticket had been withdrawn so that he could look after party campaign across the province. “After the award of tickets, all candidates had gone to their respective constituencies and the PTI Punjab office was feared to fell silent,” a party official said. He said the party needed top management active to supervise and coordinate election campaign in Lahore and Punjab.

Meanwhile, it is learnt, Aleem started contacting all Lahore candidates and coordinating for their election offices’ inauguration by party chief Imran Khan on April 19 and 20.

The PTI candidates have launched their election campaigns in their constituencies and expressing that people were giving their overwhelming positive response for the party.


An interesting combat is expected in NA-120, where PTI has pitched party’s Punjab general secretary Dr Yasmin Rashid.

Though Dr Yasmin had worked and launched party campaign NA-127 and PP-154 for the last two-and-a-half-year, she had willingly accepted to contest against PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif in his fortress.

While Nawaz Sharif’s campaign have been launched by his wife Kalsoom Nawaz and daughter Maryam Nawaz, Dr Yasmin’s team of volunteers and workers are going door-to-door and contacting people for their votes.

Dr Yasmin is visiting different markets and shops and meeting traders for votes.
“The people’s response is highly positive as they want change from the status quo. Even those, who are afraid of PML-N top leadership’s victimization, have assured their full support to the PTI,” she claimed.

PTI chief organiser in Lahore Aleem Khan said the award of PML-N tickets to candidates reflected that the party itself was not satisfied with the performance of its elected representatives during the last five years.

“The PML-N has nothing to show to masses except a “Jangla Bus Service and a couple of over-head bridges,” he added.

Party workers staged a protest demonstration against the award of party ticket to Zaheer Abbas Khokhar for PP-160. The protesters chanted slogans against Zaheer Abbas and demanded that party ticket be given to Malik Sarfraz.

Now Insafians will realize what a party like MQM was up against when they first came into power and promised to bring poor Middle class into parliament against the giants in Pakistan. They were wiped out from the province and had to flee in 90's.

Obviously now they are also power hungry and the initial message is lost somewhere in lala land. But PTI seem to have given us new hope. But they made a huge mistake by bringing in old faces and now they are paying the price for it. I hope IK can play innings of his life in last 10 overs of power play and sort out all the issues.

Kudos to them for standing up against the big parties in Pakistan. They must go all out in last few days against nawaz sharif and must try to win elections from lahore at least. They should set up huge stage and with out breaking momentum continue it till the last days. The ball is in the court of ppl of Punjab. They must not select old parties for goodness sake....

Does this thread signify 'calm before the storm'? :)

Can't say I'm very enthusiastic about the awarding of tickets. Ghulam Sarwar Khan has been awarded the NA ticket. His brother a PA ticket from Taxila and Taimoor Masood Akbar was given the PA ticket from the Wah area.

All three are former PML(Q) members. Only GSK won though and he will again contest against Ch. Nisar whom he defeated in 2002 as an independent candidate.

Candidates will be important, but most of the people voting for PTI, will be voting for Imran, and not the candidates. All Imran needs to do is pick candidates who dont have a dodgy past.

If PTI's campaign works, it will be Imran's charisma, and clean image that will get votes. If that's not the case, then dont expect any of the youngsta beauties to win. This is what Imran promised, and this is what he is risking everything on

You can convince a small majority to vote for Imran. The others look at the quality of candidates at their disposal. And I don't entirely disagree with their point of view.

Yes I understand. That's why I said it's hard to convince others to do the same.

I know highly educated people who are voting for Hoti because he did a lot of work for their hometown of Mardan. A person from Sarghoda who is voting for a PML(Q) candidate because PTI hasn't reached out to them yet. Most people fail to see the bigger picture.

Balochistan have only 14 NA seats of which PTI is contesting 11. I am not sure if these new lists are final. In the list for Sindh only 31 seats are being contested out fo 59. The list didn't show SMQ although today PTI announced that SMQ will contest as PTI candidate from sindh. So I think we still have to wait for final list.

Ayaz Ameer has announced supporting PTI's candidates in Chakwal.

Waseem
19th April 2013, 12:24
Ayaz Ameer has announced supporting PTI's candidates in Chakwal.

What a punch first up (MUST READ)

Sour grapes or an end foretold

As a bag-carrier of the N or Nawaz League, a role forced upon me by Chakwal necessity, I experienced in full measure three things: mediocrity, self-righteousness (amazing amounts of it) and a level of sycophancy on the part of senior N leaders enough to drive anyone out of his mind.

But I was caught in a web. I had left the N in 1998, having resigned from the Punjab Assembly, realising that by entering electoral politics I had messed up my journalism. Ruining journalism for politics – not a happy exchange. But the Musharraf coup and local Chakwal politics drove me into the N’s arms again.

Everyone who mattered in Chakwal – the district nazim, Majeed Malik, N’s former federal minister – had all joined Musharraf’s party leaving the opposite side barren and empty. To preserve some kind of balance locally I contested Musharraf’s 2002 elections on an N ticket – and how delighted they were that I was offering myself for sacrifice when the N ticket was anything but a prized commodity – and got a respectable 70,000 to the winner’s 71,500.

And perhaps even this would have been different if ISI officers, ultimate arbiters in that particular exercise of the ballot, had not sat behind the returning officers.

And my columns used to be read with such delight in Jeddah where the bewildered paladins of the ‘heavy mandate’ were living out their time in self-chosen exile – this the result of a Saudi and Hariri-mediated deal, whereby the Sharifs washed their hands of national politics for ten years in return for generous Saudi hospitality.

It is another matter that the Sharifs, never ones to proclaim inconvenient truths, kept denying this deal until Prince Muqrin, the Saudi intelligence chief, had to come to Islamabad and (unprecedentedly) address a press conference where he waved the paper with the deal on it. For anyone else this would have been a knock-out blow. Not for our champions who promptly came back with the rejoinder that the deal was only for five years, not ten, a declaration of innocence which left most observers flabbergasted.

Then came the 2008 elections and I led the pack in Chakwal, except for one constituency virtually deciding which ticket should go to whom. As for myself, I got 125,437 votes, the highest in Punjab.

But that was then and this is now, and this time – to my infinite relief, you’ll have to believe this – the ticket has not been given to me... because my journalism did not go down well with the party mandarins, and my face, nothing much to begin with, they had begun to dislike. I knew that parting time had come but hung on, not wishing to reinforce the impression among my constituents that I was a regular ‘resignation’ man.

But whatever the reason you will have to believe me when I say, what a relief, almost like getting out of a tight pair of clothes that one has worn for too long. I had enough sense not to turn my column into a party propaganda column, and thank God for that. But while I took jabs at the leadership I was not completely my own man, party affiliation, whether I liked it or not, holding me back and inhibiting my style.

I lampooned, among other things, Nawaz Sharif’s stand on Memogate, considering him to be out of his depth and not understanding the shaping of that particular episode. But I could not say what I thought needed to be said regarding the Asghar Khan judgement by the Supreme Court. Here was an open-and-shut case where a long line of politicians headed by Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif were caught with their pants down receiving ISI money, from ISI officers, in the 1990 elections. But no follow-up action, no prosecution, no accountability – the culprits behaving as if they had been washed in holy water.

Imagine if the Asghar Khan case was about the PPP, and not the N League. All hell would have broken loose, the declamations we would have heard, the fire and thunder from the courts, the self-righteous grandstanding. Pervaiz Ashraf, the former prime minister, is disqualified on the basis of a CDA transaction, but the Asghar Khan culprits wear suits of Teflon...nothing has stuck to them.

And although I kept writing about the moon and the stars, Ghalib and Saigal, holy fathers and holy water, about the naked double standards on display in this case – stentorian verdict pronounced but no action afterwards – I said nothing, party affiliation keeping me mum, ridicule locked up in my heart and there causing internal damage.

There was more hilarity on parade. Bank defaulters, we were told, would be out of the elections. It is hard to think of any fat cat losing sleep over this. The Chaudhrys have been great ones for having their loans written off, everything in order on paper. But the Sharifs went one step further, not going to the trouble of getting anything written off and instead simply refusing to pay anything on the near-three-billion rupee loan taken by them from the National Bank and eight other banks in the 1990s.

All this was ‘regularised’ when Nawaz Sharif became prime minister in 1997 and he went on television and proudly declared that his family was clearing the loans by offering assets in lieu of them. Sharif suggested that this was an act of unrivalled sacrifice.

That the collateral offered was in the form of their most rundown assets is beside the point. The echoes of that announcement had hardly died down when a Sharif relative went to court saying he was a shareholder in the properties offered and that Sharif had no right to dispose them off. This matter is pending in the Lahore High Court, Allah be praised, for the last 15 years. The defaulters concerned are of course preparing to save the nation once more, as they announce the imminent birth of a new dawn.

Zardari was always Zardari, never pretending to be anything else. The Sharifs were who they were but through an optical illusion with few parallels in the nation’s history we were also expected to take them as sole claimants to that hallowed space called the moral high ground. Loan artists of a kind seldom witnessed before in the annals of Pakistani banking, at the same time high priests of morality: not an easy stunt to pull off.

I was critical but off and on and with my pistols half-cocked, enduring in smouldering silence the speeches of my colleague Chaudhry Nisar Ali who excelled at going on and on, at times for two hours on end, convinced he was Cicero when he was boring everyone to death. For errant politicians in need of a lesson few punishments can be more effective than having to listen to his speeches. They will soon be on their knees, begging for mercy.

The PPP has been a disaster thrice-over, not counting Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s stint in office. The N League has been an equal disaster, the recent performance of Punjab’s little Hitler, Shahbaz Sharif, looking good only when compared to the PPP. Although on a dispassionate scale what he has to show for himself does not go beyond a line of expensive and directionless gimmicks: sasti roti, laptops, Daanish schools, etc. So there’s not much to choose from here.

Einstein’s definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. From stale porridge we have tried before, we are expecting something new. There’s no easy cure for such a malady.

Tailpiece: Musharraf’s judicial hounding: in his position one gets what one deserves. But I wish our memories were not so selective. Everyone remembers, and waxes heroic about, November 3, 2007, completely ignoring October 12, 1999, when Musharraf and his generals committed their original sin. Is it because it suits us to forget some uncomfortable truths? The then judiciary, which includes present-day eminences, validated his coup not once but twice and there was no shortage of judges who took oath under Musharraf’s PCO. Shouldn’t this inculcate in everyone concerned a touch of humility?

عمران خان اور ہارون الرشید صاحبان بھی پروفیسر صاحب کے مریدوں میں شمار ہوتے ہیں_
پروفیسر صاحب کے ایک بھانجے نے اس بار الیکشن لڑنے کی خواہش کی اورpti سے ٹکٹ مانگا جس پر عمران خان نے انکار کر دیا_ محترم پیر صاحب اور انکے مرید سکتے میں آ گے، انکار وہ بھی پروفیسر صاحب کو، یہ بات کسی کو اتنی آسانی سے ہضم نہیں ہو نی _

یہاں، یہ عمل قابل ذکر ہے کہ این اے 51 سے جس جوان کو ٹکٹ دیا گیا اس نے PTI کی UK میں بھرپور مدد کی تھی نہ صرف یہ بلکہ اس نے برٹش نشنلٹی بھی چھوڑ دی _

میری ہارون صاحب سے گزارش ہے کہ وہ اپنی ذاتی انا کی خاطر قلم کی حرمت پامال نہ کریں_ حسن نثار سے تو میں ایک مدت سے pti کے دوستوں کو محتاط رہنے کا کہہ رہ ہوں _ 1996 میں یہ ہی محترم تھے جو سیتا وائٹ کا سیکنڈل سامنے لے کر آ ے تھے اور عمران اور pti کو نا قابل تلافی نقصان پنچایا تھا_

Abrar ul Haq being a jutt can upset Ahsan Iqbal by Jatt votes...Jatt clan is quite populated in Narowal.....

Talking about few N league stalwarts.

We also have good PTI support for S.A Hameed vs Khurram Dastgir Khan.......

And industrialist Ali Ashraf Mughal is also expected to give a tough fight to Barrister Usman Ibrahim (twice MNA)..

Ottoman Ghulam Sarwar Khan will also test Ch. Nisar Ali Khan?

Anyway , the average joe is worried about the security situation , expecting violence to break out and elections not happening or delayed . Students have exams or have them coming up . Hopefully , things progress in the right direction .

and what do you say about "Mohajirs" living in Karachi supporting a mafia organisation?......

There is no better option in karachi at the moment but ppl of Punjab have golden opportunity to get rid nawaz company......after IK has done so much work for them, the dumb ppl will still vote for Noora league......

He will certainly test Ch. Nisar.
In hindsight, I now think it was the right decision to award him with the ticket. He enjoys strong support in the rural areas.

He defeated Ch. Nisar in 2002 as an independent. Knows the constituency like the back of his hand.

oh really, why don't you vote for PTI in Karachi then? this is a ** excuse.

PTI may not win Punjab but people will vote for them, absolutely no doubt about that.

calling Punjabis dumb but then more happy to vote for MQM who you admit are a mafia party?

Hypocrisy 101.

typical karkunaan approach. You elect people for legislation and policy making of government, not to clean gutters. I'm sure you'll find plenty of guttar-chaap people in MQM but dont worry, they wont find their way in assemblies this year.

FYKI, PTI is fielding candidates on nearly all constituencies of Karachi. So unless you think MQM is a better option, vote for CHANGE !

I just saw a dream in which it was 4 days before the election and the PTI candidates were telling me they won. They said the real elections happen four days before the voting process.

I asked them how many seats they won and they said "We won eighty seats, but have formed the majority".

Weird dream.

Can anyone shed some light on Rana Ameer, PTI candidate from Gujranwala III. Hassan Nisar has made him the biggest thug of Pakistan, ever.
