Asif Zardari Ticks Off Aitzaz Ahsan??

I have no comments on this news-item published in the Daily Times. Since it is still not verified by either of the parties, it remains uncertain whether this incident ever happened?

NAUDERO: PPP Co-chairman Asif Zardari is reported to have ticked off Aitzaz Ahsan in an after-dinner gathering of the PPP’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) members in Naudero on the subject of the restoration of the judges, independence of the judiciary and the threatened long march by Aitzaz and his supporters. According to sources present on the occasion, Zardari took Aitzaz to task for constantly threatening to launch a long march to force parliament to restore Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry and the other deposed judges. Zardari advised Aitzaz to go ahead with his long march if he was so keen on it instead of constantly threatening the PPP about it. He told Aitzaz that he was wrong to think that the lawyers movement had forced General Pervez Musharraf to take off his uniform or hold the elections. He said that honour belonged to Benazir Bhutto who had compelled Musharraf to do so and paid for it with her life. He said the entire credit for restoration of democracy went to Ms Bhutto and Aitzaz and the judges and lawyers could not rob her of her victory. Zardari also reminded Aitzaz that while he was incarcerated for eight long years none of these heroic judges had given him justice, even when he had asked for one day’s reprieve to attend a funeral of a close relative. Zardari is reported to have said that Justice Chaudhry had politicised himself overtly and ruined his case as an advocate for an independent judiciary. He also cited other instances when some of these judges had not conducted themselves with any degree of integrity or independence in the past. Aitzaz tried a feeble defence but could not deflect Zardari’s irritation. “I thought Aitzaz would get up and leave but he just sat there,” said the source. staff report

    well that’s sure good to know. and i’ll bet right now he’s singing (doing his bestest hannah montana impersonation) these inspiring lines

    I’ll be right here where you need me
    Anytime just keep believing
    And I’ll be right here
    If you ever need a friend
    Someone to care and understand
    I’ll be right here

    All you have to do is call my name
    No matter how close or far away
    Ask me once and I’ll come, I’ll come running
    And when I can’t be with you, dream me near
    Keep me in your heart and I’ll appear
    All you gotta do is turn around
    Close your eyes, look inside

    I’m right here

    To be honest nothing seems surprsing in Pakistani politics given the events of the previous 12 months. One year ago would anyone even have imagined that Zardari would transform himself into the new Quaid of Pakistan. sigh

    We are suffering because majority in Pakistan who decides our fate is illiterate, really, only educated should be allowed to cast vote. They say that educated ppl don’t cast vote, trust me if all of them start doing that even then they can’t change anything because (sadly) they are in MINORITY.
