Opinion : Power slipping away from Zardari’s hands

by: Tausif Kamal

It seems that the GHQ and the right wing fundamental lobby in Pakistan are rattled by the pro- civilian, pro-democracy policy towards Pakistan of President Obama and this US Administration as indicated by the provisions of the Kerry Lugar Bill…The GHQ and its fundo lobby I think senses the power slipping away from their hands and hence they would do anything to weaken the democratic govt. and to overthrow President Zardari, for instance by playing the ‘national security’ card…Towards this end they would use the media and their reactionary columnists, editors, reporters and TV hosts to plant stories and write against Zardari for starters…They think once Zardari is gone, PPP will split and the elected govt will become impotent or it will be toppled and replaced by right wingers and fundoos (PML N, JI etc)….
