WEB DESK: “BBZ tweeted that Chaudhry Nisar’s grand design of becoming the Prime Minister has not come to fruition.” “This is not the first time that Chaudhry Nisar has been attacked by Zardis.
And though I do like his plain speaking a lot, and need I add even the Khan admitted that the Chaudhry is not a darbari (courtier) – a necessary condition for getting a cabinet position in status quo parties – yet to be honest there is no love lost between Chaudhry sahib and those he comes into contact with.”

“Precisely! Besides don’t forget Gilani was the prime minister when Clinton was engaged with Pakistan as Secretary of State so there is a connection.” “Right, but can I recommend to BBZ to shed the Z in his name.” “Why? He is as much his father’s son as he is his mother’s.

I bet you anything had Mian sahib been in the country he would have made some additions and deletions and…” “Contenders for his position are still in training, remember Benazir Bhutto was first under training with her dad when he was the prime minister, then she became the leader of the party with her mom, and let’s be honest it took her over a decade to get the party organised under her leadership…”
“See there you have it, I liked Kulsoom when she was negotiating the release of her husband from jail with Musharraf and she comported herself with great elegance and…” “So you reckon the same process will begin in the PML-N?” “I am not sure because the process really has to start after the trainee, if you know what I mean.” “Hmmm, let’s wait and see…” -Business Recorder
