Not a good start

PPP and MQM are heading towards a coalition gov. in Sindh but the ground realities are not as sweet as the media is trying to portray. No matter how how many flowers and smiles are exchanged at 90 and Bilawal house the fact remains the leaders are more into how to divide the pizza then to serve the ordinary man. If there is a will it will be translated to action but if there isn’t any we are not going to hear good coming out of Karachi in future. Following news report is not a good start for the future coalition if they have learned anything from past. The need is to resolve the differences within and especially not to bring it into public where the differences are translated into practical show of strength by party workers.

    Good post MB. Would you be kind enough to fix the responsibility for all this. There is a history behind it. The management of the Water Board and KBCA was taken over by the sindh government last day with any discussion and the parleys that are going on between the two parties. Would that not be better it the decision has been taken in consultation with the parties. Karachi’s Local Government problem is that Karchi is govern by 13 different agencies and CDGK is held responsible for every thing. There should be unity of command and every body should come under the CDGK.

    MB, a timely post.

    a) PPP and MQM government would be an alliance of two political parties but two ethnicities coming to an understanding and defining one and another role in the government.
    b) PPP or should I say – former bad boy Zardari would do anything to stay in power because without power he(s) no more – he knows it.
    c) There(s) a camp of Sindhi Fascists in Sindh who are bent upon ‘confrontation’ with MQM – that would result in total collapse of system in Sindh – we should all avoid it.
    d) MQM should realize and try to change the childish policies of violence and understand that they had been used and abused by establishment and especially by wannabe General Ataturk.
    e) There(s) a sense that the PPP-folks are all out for a witch-hunt – this should stop, immediately.

    What can you expect!!!

    I thought this time PPP govt would be much mature and would be good for atleats interior of Sind, but those hopes seem to fade away fast.

    Look at this link…

    Every new govt that comes, the first thing they do is just drop all the programs of the last govt, layoff all the employees hired from the past govt.

    No one seems to grow up, be it PPP, MQM, PML, JI, TI or what ever the combinations of letters exist….
