ISLAMABAD: With advent of 67th Independence Day, the country is rapidly moving a head towards another political turmoil that may endanger the incumbent political setup as well as democracy in Pakistan.
The ongoing month may prove hard for the ruling Pakistan Muslim league (Nawaz) government, as Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan and head, Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Dr Tahirul Qadri along with their allies are tying up their shoe to initiate their marches towards Pakistani capital.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan has announced to carry out his ‘Azadi March’ at any cost, despite government has signalled him for accepting his demands.
For the purpose, PTI has already initiated her registration and awareness campaign motivating people to join the ‘Azadi March’ reportedly to make fall of PML-N government.
A PTI MNA Hamidul Haq observed that in wake of ‘Azadi March’ his leader has summoned the resignations of members of the National Assembly belonging to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
It is likely that PTI will submit these resignations to the speaker National Assembly by August 13, causing another blow for the PML-N lead government inside the Parliament.
On the other hand PAT Head, Allama Dr Tahirul Qadri is likely to announce the final date for his party’s ‘Youm-e-Inqalab’ march towards Islamabad in order to protest against the government, during which he would be flanked by Pakistan Muslim League (Quaid), Awami Muslim League ‘s Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, Majlis Wahdatul Muslimeen (MWM), Sunni Itihad Council and other religious parties.
The Pakistan Awami Tehreek is likely to carry out her rally just a day earlier and is likely to join Imran Khan in Islamabad.
Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has yet to decide about her standing in the long march; however they have indicated their soft corner toward Qadri, as they are having little problems with PPP led Sing government who is silently playing a ‘Friendly Opposition in this crucial time of the PML-N government.
Awami National Party and few other forces have to announce their upcoming political partnerships yet.
When Jamiat-e-Ulema-Islam (Fazal)’s Ameer is aligning himself with the sitting PML-N government in coming political crises, Jamat-e-Islami is apparently staying neutral.
However on August 10 JI will carry out rallies and marches to express her solidarity with Palestinian Muslims, for which government is likely to back up JI reflecting their hidden love affair for each other, told another source.
In upcoming political scenario, the largest opposition force in the parliament namely Pakistan Peoples Party is mysteriously quite and calm role, cautioning to repeat the role of a ‘friendly opposition’ for their ex-partners.
As the government has already called military in the capital for three months to safeguard the city as well as government and the sensitive installations, a little unpleasant incident may expose the whole political and democratic system to great risks.
With every coming day the political scenario is getting complex in Pakistan and number of political jugglers are playing their role to avert the political situation back to normalcy.
