Via GT Road

August 9, 2017

Now that Mian Nawaz Sharif has been disqualified by the honorable Supreme Court of Pakistan he is determined to convert this qualification into an unprecedented opportunity to give a big big boost to his party politics. Amidst threats and some serious apprehensions he has opted GT Road to go back to his hometown. The plan is very clear: Pull the huge crowed to welcome him on the way, and give the message To Whom It May Concern that despite the disqualification from the court of law Mian Nawaz Sharif is not finished yet. He is the leader, he is the most popular leader, he is crowd puller, he represents the masses even today, people love him, he is too strong political reality to be sidestepped so easily, he is in iconic victim of injustice, he is symbol of democracy in Pakistan and last but not the least: He is Recep Tayyip Erdogan the making. But only if wishes were the horses, my sir.

Yes he is going on G T road and G T Road is stronghold of PMLN. Yes they are in the power in Punjab and power can ensure then a strong reception on the GT Road. Yes he is having his party men elected as MNA and MPA from around the roadside and yes his party in controlling the district governments in the cities on his way to Lahore. These are reasonable factors to ensure him that his show is not going to a failure. With all satisfaction he can move to Lahore via GT Road. But does it mean that there is an unprecedented reception in the offing that will change the political realities in Nawaz’ favor. I think the answer is NO. his government is not that a success story that people will pour into GT Road for the beloved leader. Yes it will not be a failure but the success shall be very ordinary, an average perhaps. And don’t forget that Mr Tahir ul Qadri has reached Lahore to welcome them.
