I have always found Javed Chaudhry and Kamran Khan singing for N league....

Javed Chaudhry's tone and behavior in yesterday's program was utterly disgusting ...He kept mocking Sheri Mazaari ....

Many other anchors conduct their programmes in a much better way...

Yes u r right.I have seen Javed Chaudhry many times even bringing up IK house in isb as an argument that why IK is living in big home if he talks about poor people or Raiwind.
A lame excuse just to bash IK.

IMRAN KHAN’S REVOLUTION MARCHES ON

YOU CAN’T LEAD A REVOLUTION AND HIDE BEHIND BULLETPROOF GLASS—AT LEAST NOT ACCORDING TO IMRAN KHAN, WILDCARD CONTENDER FOR POWER AT THE BALLOT BOX IN PAKISTAN ON MAY 11.

Visibly tired by 15-hour days, frenetic flying and driving round the country to address tens of thousands in a campaign dominated by threats and fear of attack, the cricket legend is nothing if not focused. “This is a revolution taking place,” he told AFP after several days of hard campaigning in Punjab, his home province and the political backbone of Pakistan, which elects a little over half the seats in the National Assembly. Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is being seen as the biggest barrier to the Punjab-based Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz)’s return to power, propelled by an anti-incumbency fervor against President Asif Ali Zardari’s Pakistan Peoples Party.

“When I came to politics 17 years ago, I had already conquered my fear of dying because I knew I was going to challenge the status quo,” 60-year-old Khan says. But security is clearly a major preoccupation. According to Khan, he is on the “top five hit list.” He may not use the bulletproof glass screens used by other politicians at public rallies, but he travels in an armored car with an armed police escort.

His party cancelled a rally in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city, on Sunday after attacks on rival parties killed more than 20 people. Attacks targeting the election campaign have so far killed nearly 60 people ahead of the May 11 polls.

“We couldn’t take a risk. It’s just too dangerous. I mean you can’t risk the life of other people,” Khan said.

Khan has two sons by his ex-wife Jemima Khan, daughter of the late billionaire tycoon James Goldsmith, but they live in Britain and he has not seen them for several months. “My older son worries. You know he worries, obviously, because when he hears what’s going on in Pakistan,” he says.

Khan and Nawaz Sharif, the two-time prime minister whose PMLN party is tipped to win, are the only two leaders addressing big rallies. The three main parties in the outgoing government, the PPP, the MQM and the ANP, have curtailed public gatherings in the face of direct Taliban threats.

Khan’s campaign is about mobilizing the masses, exploiting disaffection with a corrupt elite, tapping into anti-American sentiment that blames many of the countries woes on the United States and promising to fix a crippling power crisis.

“If my politics is different … I can’t be standing behind a bulletproof screen and connecting with the people,” he says. In fact, when he bounded up to the microphone in Sarghoda, a university and garrison town in Punjab’s farm belt, he deliberately stepped in front, not behind the protective screen party workers had hauled onto the podium.

To his supporters he is the hero who led Pakistan’s cricket team to World Cup victory in 1992 and then set up the best cancer hospital in the country. He went into politics in 1996, founding his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (Movement for Justice) party determined to break the stranglehold of dynastic politics.

But it wasn’t until October 2011, when he attracted a crowd of more than 100,000—mostly young people, women and middle class voters—in his hometown of Lahore, did he emerge from celebrity lightweight into serious contender.

He claims to be leading a “tsunami” of change, promising to improve governance and education, solve the energy crisis and balance the books by introducing tax reform and slashing expenditure. His core base is the emerging middle class, which is socially conservative. But to alarmed detractors he is “Taliban Khan”—soft on Islamist militants and naive in his criticism of the U.S. war on Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

He opposes U.S. drone strikes and calls for peace talks with the Taliban, which the government blames for killing 30,000 people over the last decade.

Although Khan believes he will be Pakistan’s next prime minister, analysts say he is more likely to secure 10-30 seats in the 342-member National Assembly—a breakthrough that could make him kingmaker of an incoming coalition. But he refuses to share power with the PPP, which led the national government for the last five years, or PMLN, which has ruled Punjab, saying that his party will go into the opposition if they do not win outright.

Scathing about Sharif and Zardari, he does, however, have words of pity for former military ruler Pervez Musharraf, who returned home last month from self-imposed exile only to be put under house arrest.

“He sent me a message once saying if he and I got together, then 95 percent of Pakistan was with us. I mean that would have been a suicide attack on my party,” he says. “Anyway, it’s something I have always had for underdogs, I feel sorry for him, although he did a lot of damage to Pakistan.”

A fascinating look at the contest in and around Multan

MULTAN: Six National Assembly seats, 13 of provincial assembly; high-wattage candidates; PPP, PML-N, PTI and JI vying for victory; urban and rural voters with their separate dynamics; settlers and migrants versus natives; biradirism and factionalism; and the lurking issue of a south Punjab province – the intensity of the electoral race in Multan is rivalled only by its complexity.The names here are all eye-catching: Yusuf Raza Gilani’s sons Ali Musa and Abdul Qadir are up against Shah Mehmood Qureshi, PTI, and Sikandar Hayat Bosan of PML-N.Javed Hashmi is in the same race as Liaquat Baloch, secretary general of the Jamaat-i-Islami. And Shah Mehmood Qureshi is contesting a second seat in Multan city against lesser-known but strong rivals from the PML-N and PPP.These four seats – NA-148 to NA-151 – are where most eyes are on in Multan and none of the camps involved are confident of victory as yet. Racing from one meeting to the next and campaigning from early morning till the late hours of the night, the candidates and their allies need not state the obvious: they are in the fight of their lives.Appearing the most relaxed is Yusuf Raza Gilani, freed from the burden of contesting himself but campaigning intensely on behalf of his sons. Driving his Land Cruiser – non-bullet proof, as Gilani points out – and accompanied by a three-vehicle police escort, Gilani is listening to his favourite music and waving to supporters on the road as he shuttles between his sons’ constituencies, one predominantly urban, NA 148, the other largely rural, NA-151.“This is what I like best, being among my people,” Gilani says, after a brief stop at a small house in a narrow lane, where supporters quickly gather to cheer Gilani and the PPP. The Gilanis are relying on two factors to carry them to victory on May 11: one, a loyal PPP and Gilani vote bank in Multan; and two, the enormous money and time Yusuf Raza lavished on Multan during his four-year stint as prime minister.“Every day I spent at least one hour looking at the affairs of Multan,” Gilani said of his time as prime minister. The results, both supporters and rivals attest, are there for all to see. Large parts of Multan city have been transformed by a quintessentially Pakistani understanding of development: roads, bridges and flyovers are layered across the city in a dizzying, ribbon-like arrangement.“When Bunny (Abdul Qadir) was contesting, people said, ‘na bijli, na paani leikin Gilani,’” the elder Gilani said with a smile of his son’s hard-fought victory last July in NA-151, the seat vacated by Gilani after his disqualification by the Supreme Court.

SMQ’s MIXED OUTLOOK: “Ali Musa is safe,” said Kasim Gilani, another son of Yusuf Raza who is campaigning for the family, referring to the contest in NA-148 between Ali Musa Gilani, Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Abdul Ghaffar Dogar, PML-N.Originally Qureshi’s stronghold in Multan, Ali Musa won the seat by a margin of over 50,000 votes against Dogar in a Feb 2012 by-election after Qureshi resigned having joined the PTI. But with Qureshi back in the race now, Kasim Gilani explained the reasons his family is hoping for a second win in NA-148: “It’s a triangular fight now, plus our panel is very strong,” referring to Ali Musa’s running mates, including a brother of Shah Mehmood Qureshi.“148 is a tougher contest. It is neck-and-neck,” admitted Zain Qureshi, son of Shah Mehmood. “The main problem is that we didn’t take part in the by-election and our voters went over to Ghaffar Dogar (the PML-N candidate). Now, seventy-five to eighty per cent is back with us, but there are still factions with Dogar.”“150 we are fairly comfortable,” Zain Qureshi continued, turning to the other seat his father is contesting in Multan. “Rana Hassan (the PML-N candidate and winner in 2008) has a very bad reputation and people are sick of him.”“Secondly, it’s a completely urban constituency, so there is a PTI and Shah Mehmood Qureshi factor there. Thirdly, the Ansaris are split,” the younger Qureshi explained, referring to a seat his father has never contested before and where there is a heavy PML-N and Ansari biradiri influence.Imran Gabol, a local journalist, echoed Qureshi’s outlook for NA-150: “Shah Mehmood Qureshi has done his homework and has a lot of support. He’s broken supporters from Rana Hassan, who isn’t very popular. It looks like it will be a fight between the PML-N and PTI.”Gabol, though, cautioned that while the PPP candidate, Nafees Ansari, is weak and a new entrant to the party, the warring but pivotal Ansari biradiri could rally behind him come election time.

Tough fights
The challenge for Javed Hashmi in NA-149, a seat he won in 2008 but vacated after joining the PTI, is a crowded field. “Whenever there is a triangular contest, PPP wins,” Jamshed Rizwani, the Geo bureau chief in Multan, said. “Half the votes there are PPP and the other half anti-PPP.”An urban constituency with a large conservative vote bank, in the past the PML-N and Jamaat-i-Islami have cooperated here to ensure victory for a right-of-centre candidate. This time there is a four-way race in NA-149: Hashmi, Liaquat Baloch (JI), Tariq Rasheed, the PML-N winner in the Feb 2012 by-election that was marred by accusations of widespread rigging, and Malik Amir Dogar, the PPP candidate.With the conservative vote now split, Dogar is considered the front-runner on May 11. But Rizwani warned: “It’s a heavily educated constituency. In the by-election, the turnout was very low and the PTI thinks that was its voter staying away. Dogar is strong but you can’t write off Hashmi.”For the PML-N, Multan remains a riddle it has yet to fully crack – the electorate here being roughly divided between prosperous and conservative settlers from other parts of Punjab and migrants at Partition on one side and PPP-leaning, poorer natives on the other side. Winner of two of the six NA seats in 2008, the PML-N has only one clear front-runner in 2013: Syed Javed Ali Shah in NA-152.The other is Sikandar Hayat Bosan, who joined the PML-N at the eleventh hour after breaking from the PTI and will face off against Abdul Qadir Gilani in NA-151.“It’s one-on-one and neck to neck,” said Kasim Gilani, brother of Abdul Qadir. “Bosan has forty to forty-five thousand of his own votes there. Add to that twenty-thousand biradiri votes and ten-to-fifteen thousand N-League votes. We (Gilanis) don’t have our home there and have to start by making up the personal votes Bosan has there.”The Gilanis did, however, win an election here last summer. After Yusuf Raza was forced out by the Supreme Court, Abdul Qadir narrowly defeated Sikandar Bosan’s brother, who stood as an independent but was backed by the PML-N and PTI. Even though Bosan’s brother lost despite the collective efforts of the PPP’s rivals, Sikandar Bosan is considered a formidable candidate.“Bosan has the edge,” Jamshed Rizwani said. “There are only two dharras in NA-151: Gilani and Bosan. In the city-Cantt part of the constituency, the PPP usually loses.

But it’s a difficult constituency to predict: usually all the votes in a polling station go one way or the other. Where Bosan is strong, Gilani is weak and vice versa.

Peshawar: Tehreek e Taliban has accepted responsibility of bomb attacks in Karachi, Peshawar, Kohat and Swabi, Private TV channel claimed. Talking to a private TV channel, TTP spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said that his organization’s committee decided to attack selective political parties. He said that the committee decided criteria of attack. Currently, TTP is targeting only ruling parties of last government. Pakistan Peoples party, Awami national Party and Muttahida Qaumi Movement were part of last federal government, he added. He also told channel that current unrest situation of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, FATA and Swat is due to these three parties.


TTP Safe Side List:
TTP Spokesman also announced list of democratic parties which will remain safe from attacks during election campaign. Nawaz league, Jamaat e Islami, Tehreek e Insaf and Jamiat Ulema Islam are not in target list, Ehsanullah said.


He also told that TTP is not expecting any Goodness from PTI, PML-N, JI and JUI. We neither in favor of these parties nor against, he said. Once again Ehsanullah criticized Democracy and said that it’s not from Islam and it’s a secular system.
Ehsanullah didn’t clarify his stance on JUI-F as it was remained part of former government.
He also revealed that TTP can also target independent candidates as they are becoming part of becoming part of democratic, secular and anti Islamic system.
It’s pertinent to mention here that around one dozen planted bomb blast occurred in last one week in which several died and dozens injured. Almost all political parties condemned these attacks and asked interim government to take strong against militants

TTP trying to spin

-PML-N was part of govt
-JUI-F was part of Govt
-Independents were not part of govt.
-PML-N/JUI-F/PTI participating non-islamic secular democratic process..

No one in their right mind can defend these ******** brainless animals called talibans. No one is saying these tribals are saints, Imran's point of view is based on learning from history. You can't just attack these people and expect to understand why they are being attacked. they are armed to teeth and we can engage there for decades if we want to keep doing what we are for 8 years.

According to FBR laws for preparing wealth statement you value your assets at cost. Cost isn't fair market value but the purchase price. Now about the inherited assets, since they were inherited not purchased the cost value is zero. 2 or 3 crore is the cost value of his assets not current market value.

He has listed all his assets. If anyone wants he/she can appraise them to current market value to find out the worth of his assets. Since FBR requires you to list your assets on cost not FMV(fair market value) his assets are worth only 2-3 crores.

Since he has listed all his assets(including bank accounts), any increase or decrease in his assets can easily be identified.

most people dont know who the taliban are. Imran has the right idea, first to fight your enemy you must know your enemy.

the idea is to isolate those elements that re unwilling to budge..once that happens they will be eliminated..this is actually the PA's strategy and IK has adopted it. The PA however have complained that they cant carry this out without civilian support..IK will provide this support.

Sounds about right. So out of 113 seats left, how many will be divided b/w PML-N and PTI. Lets say 50/50 to be conservative, that means 56 seats +/- 1 seat to each party.

saadibaba
2nd May 2013, 03:23
Lets take Sindh:

Out of 61 seats, lets give 15 to MQM, 6 to PML-F, rest will go to PPP = 40 seats.

saadibaba
2nd May 2013, 03:25
So that means PPP just from Sindh and Punjab (+PML-Q) is upto to 75 seats. While PML-N and PTI are 50-60 each.

saadibaba
2nd May 2013, 03:30
Lets take KP:

Out of 35 seats lets give PTI 20, PML-F 5, ANP 5 and PPP 5.

That brings the total of PTI to 70-80 seats. And PPP to 80 seats.

saadibaba
2nd May 2013, 03:34
Lets take Balochistan:

Out of 14 seats, lets divided them equally b/w PPP, PTI and PML-N. 4-5 seats each.

Still PPP leading with almost 85 seats, with PTI 75-85 seats and PML-N 60 seats.

PTI + PML-N alliance = I think out of the question.

Key battle grounds are urban Sindh and south Punjab. If PTI can sweep south Punjab and make a mark in urban Sindh, they'll get 100+ seats

I counted the SMQ seat in PML-F total (in reality that is a PML-F seat)

PTI might sweep urban south Punjab but rural south Punjab will be very tough. Same with urban Sindhi, other than 1-2 seats, I don't see much happening there.

plenty of MQM seats are up for grabs. NA 248, 250, 251, 252 and 253. All lower-middle class to middle class population with no clear party affiliation. I do admit that there is little or no hope in rural sindh :(

So is Nawaz Sharif Punjabi that's why most Punjabis are voting for him? or is there legitimate reason?

And IK have strong support in KP because he is pathan?

I hope IK gets more votes in Sindh, don't understand/know why he isn't famous there?

^^^

A huge Jalsa in Khi may have swung the tide. With the security situation being so bad we are lookin at 30-40% voter turn ou at best. Low turnout will help status quo parties more than emerging parties like PTI who will need big turnouts and rock solid organization to get their voters out.

Btw, in my calculations I did decrease MQM seats from 19 to 15.

No, not really. Senior Bhutto and BB, both Sindhis have won Punjab by big margins.

Ok another question, how close was PML-N winning the last election? Do PPP currently have majority or have alliance with someone? Sorry very lazy to google.

nah, this city has seen worse situations. I guarantee you, we'll see upsurge in voters turn out in all constituencies.

Btw, PTI is very confident about their position in Karachi. Huge and massive PTI hoardings on all major roads and junctions. And no candidate mentioned on hoardings, Only Imran with the message "Peaceful Karachi, naya Pakistan"

Unique idea, it remains to be seen if that can translate into votes :)

Oh! Then how the heck Nawaz Sharif suddenly got famous, wasn't he TTP (Tried and Tested Politician)?

plenty of voting pattern is based on ethnicity. MQM is the biggest example, previously known as Muhajir Qoumi Movement. (targeting muhajir ethnicity)

IK has support throughout Pakistan while NS is mainly popular in Punjab only and some parts of KPK. PPP has historically done well as a national party, getting good number of votes among all provinces

I recently came to know that IK has 'bat' as his voting symbol. :)) Shouldn't it be 'ball' instead. :yk I know bat is more visually catchy.

Nawaz has been a popular leader before. PML achieved 2/3 majority in 1997 election. Both PPP and PML-N have gained popularity due to other parties corruption and mis-management :)

My perception tells me without knowing anything about PTI's or other parties' policy that IK will be the most hard working PM if becomes PM compare to others, even if he may not be the smartest politician in Pakistan. Like you know Naive hard working person. I can see that grandpa is not faking, and honest trier. Wants more for Pakistan than for himself.

Of course this perception comes from the way he played cricket.

one of the reasons, yes. Another would be. since he's a business man, bureaucrats support him. Also, the muppet he is, he can be controlled easily by the forces outside Pakistan. Saudi Arabia is one of those forces.
