The PPP Under Attack - Wajid Shamsul Hasan

Lately there has been a well-orchestrated media blitzkrieg against Pakistan People's Party and its leader Senator Asif Ali Zardari. Even some senior journalists have started painting doomsday scenarios regarding the PPP's future casting doubts on its present. The overall picture has doubly confounded the confusion.

As a detached observer sitting over 3,000 miles away from Pakistan I have reasons to assume that besides everything that is being churned out is overly linked to divert the attention from the profound ramifications of the murder of martyred Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and the larger conspiracy behind the dastardly deed to obliterate PPP from the body politic of Pakistan – a long-standing objective of the establishment and vested interests.

As a detached observer sitting over 8,000 miles away from Pakistan I have reasons to assume that Wajid Shamsul Hasan is "spinning" and skimming over the real reasons why PPP is losing the gloss.

People (I dislike using everyone's favourite expression "civil society") expected good governance from PPP (and Nawaz League).

The real issue for the nation was Economy - Power Generation, Prices of Basic Necessities, Curbing Terrorism, Law & Order, Employment.

The real issue for Asif Zardari, the co chairman of the hand written will was the NRO.

Zardari perceived the sidelined CJ Iftikhar Chaudhry as an opponent of NRO. Embracing the Chinese proverb - enemy of my enemy is my friend - it was natural that Zardari would seek alliance with Pervez Musharraf much to the chagrin of Nawaz Sharif.

In this pursuit, PPP, maneuvered by Zardari lost much of the goodwill it had earned.

Glad to be helpful Mr. Hasan.
