Imran Khan and his political party seem to be obsessed with PML(N) and its leadership given the volume and quantum of their scathing criticism of Punjab government and silence over governance of other provincial governments in Sindh, Khyber Pukhtunkhwa, Balochistan, GB and the autonomous AJK ruled by a coalition of PPP, MQM, ANP and PML(Q) and in some cases even JUI(F). If it is not an obsession than we are to assume that it is either politics of convenience, or else even worse, an endorsement of governance in other provinces and the state of AJK to be better than in Punjab.
Does Imran Khan seriously think that resignations by PML(N) would exert enough moral pressure on this coalition led by PPP to hold fresh elections, when the same party openly defies orders of SC and feels to no shame in having a convicted man hold the post of Prime Minister. Why does not Imran Khan focus on target killings, extortion, kidnapping and corruption that dominates in Karachi, KP and Balochistan.
Does he realize that Pakistan’s economy has suffered because Karachi has been reduced to a battle ground for turf, where armed gangs and their crimes have forced investors to shift to other countries. Is he aware of the fact that inspite of minimal line losses and theft, industries in Faisalabad, Multan, Gujrat etc have closed down because of unprecedented load shedding depriving millions of daily wagers of employment?
Silence of a political party like PTI, that claims a following in all federating units of Pakistan, on the political mistakes of parties that hold power in Pakistan is not justified if Imran Khan wants to continue to assume the moral high ground which he claims and which is the only plus point that he has. He has to be fair in his criticism and not be selective, otherwise this policy of attacking the PML(N) alone and being soft on others points to an egoistic obsession to settle old scores.
