An oxymoronic political love affair between two bitter rivals of the past has turned sour before blossoming. Not to anyone’s surprise, though. One doesn’t have to be a political soothsayer to predict that this unnatural political romance was doomed from the start. Their mutual distrust is so visceral that they couldn’t stop suspecting each other despite joining hands for the same cause.
Talking to media persons, Maryam Nawaz said that causing damage to democratic struggle just to get a minor, inconsequential position in Senate is unfortunate and said that on one side there are those who are sacrificing their own wellbeing for the public and its right to rule, while on the other side are those who have sacrificed all their principles and narrative for a minor position.
“I am glad that this line has been drawn and that everyone recognizes who is standing where,” she said.
Maryam Nawaz said “If you really wanted this meaningless and inconsequential post, you should have asked Nawaz Sharif for it. It’s not like we could have formed a government with it even if the PML-N got the post”, she said.
The PML-N leader said that it was first time in her life that the Opposition Leader was elected with support of government members.
She further asked PPP to accept that the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) voted for their candidate and said “If you want to be subservient; if you want to be selected, then you should follow Imran Khan, who does this stubbornly and shamelessly”.
PML-N, JUI-F and other parties are more than enough to give tough time to the incumbent government, she added.
