Du­bi­ous out­fit of PPP

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - SALAR LA­TEEF

This fact can never be ne­glected that when­ever you han­dover any­thing to the per­son, who does not have any idea to op­er­ate, the con­se­quences would be dis­as­trous. Sim­i­larly, this sce­nario knells a fear alarm, when we look at PPP, nowa­days with Bi­lawal Bhutto Zar­dari as its chair­man who has started work­ing as a torch bearer of PPP him­self.

How the PPP Chair­man de­ceived the in­no­cent but en­thu­si­as­tic “Jialas” while ad­dress­ing the gath­er­ing on 27th De­cem­ber, mark­ing the sixth death an­niver­sary of Be­nazir Bhutto Sha­heed, is known to every­body in the coun­try but his lan­guage and dic­tion of speech was def­i­nitely shame­ful as he kept on nag­ging the heads of other par­ties. Does only PPP, and that too led by a rowdy young man kike Bi­lawal, hold a man­date and all other par­ties are of zero sig­nif­i­cance? Shouldn’t there be a dif­fer­ence in the wis­dom of tra­di­tional typ­i­cal politi­cian and so-called ed­u­cated chair­man? Is PPP a sa­cred cow in the world of pol­i­tics? Such ques­tions are yet to be an­swered. The stance of PTI over this is­sue is praise wor­thy and ap­pre­cia­ble but on the other hand, PPP led Sindh gov­ern­ment played its role at its best to prove ir­re­spon­si­ble at­ti­tude by us­ing gov­ern­ment ma­chin­ery to de­fend Bi­lawal house as they de­clared it “Si­asi Qi­bla”.

Bi­lawal claimed his party as the party of the poor. The word “poor” seemed too strange in his state­ment. Is there any­one to ask him what kind of poor are the Ma­har Brothers of Ghotki, the Pitafi feu­dals, Sar­dar Zual­ifquar Ka­mario of Shikarpur, Ai­jaz Khan Jakhrani of Ja­cob­a­bad, Man­zoor Was­san and Nawab Was­san of Kot­diji, Zual­ifquar Mirza of Badin and many other Sar­dars, who are the vi­tal part of PPP.

A well-known writer Amar Jalil writes in his story “Fron nowhere to ev­ery­where”; what he un­for­tu­nately doesn’t know is the Sufi view about his du­bi­ous phi­los­o­phy: “One who be­lieves he can buy any­thing and any­body hap­pens to be a vul­ner­a­ble com­mod­ity for sale”. Bi­lawal Bhutto is re­quested to be pen­sive and not to fol­low the path of tra­di­tional pol­i­tics of blame game. He should prove him­self a lit­er­ate icon as his cur­rent style of pol­i­tics harms emo­tions of pa­tri­otic Pak­ista­nis and it also gives birth to many other prob­lems for coun­try. —Via email
