Zero hour approaches for premier - Rauf Klasra

This is a long rambling and repititous piece by Rauf... the editor must be sleeping on the does offer a few insights on what might happen if Gilani looks in the mirror~~t

So, whether Zardari wants to get rid of first Shahbaz Sharif, then Nawaz Sharif and finally Yousuf Raza Gilani, or not. It is to be seen whether the plan succeeds or the powers, which are working on the minus-one formula, succeed.However, it is clear the moment that always scared Yousuf Raza Gilani has finally approached. When he became the prime minister, he had only one thing in mind that he would not turn another Farooq Leghari, but the situation took a turn so rapidly that in the days to come, either he would have to submit his resignation to Asif Zardari or defy him on the pretext of saving the system, because if the Shahbaz Sharif government in the Punjab was removed and Nawaz Sharif was got disqualified from the Supreme Court, then nothing would remain intact in Islamabad.Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani feels he has reached a crucial juncture of his political career. He has to decide either to stay with Asif Zardari, who is suffering from extreme political isolation and in whom nobody is ready to trust, or stand with Nawaz Sharif, who, along with the lawyers, is threatening to march on Islamabad next month. Gilani has very little time because he has to decide before the president’s return from China either to support the efforts for the removal of the Shahbaz government in the Punjab or to betray his leader, who had exactly one year ago named him the prime minister. Gilani knows it well that if the Shahbaz government was removed, he too would be unable to stay in the Prime Minister’s House for a long time, so it’s in his interest that the present political dispensation in the Punjab remains intact.
