Marvi Memon picks PML-N over PTI tsunami

LAHORE: Putting an end to rumours of joining Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) , Marvi Memon has picked  Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) over the tsunami and will formally announce her decision on Sunday.

Memon is an ex-MNA and former member of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid.

An SMS from Dr Asif Kirmani, Nawaz Sharif’s political secretary, states that Memon will meet the party chief in Raiwand tomorrow and will make the announcement at a press conference around 10:30am.

The decision brings an end to much speculation on which political party Marvi Memon will join after she quit PML-Q. There had been speculation that she might join Imran Khan’s PTI after she attended a couple of high-profile party events.

Memon was also present at the PTI rally in Ghotki where former foreign minister and ex-Pakistan Peoples Party leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi had announced that he was joining the party.

It had been reported that after her resignation in June last year, PML-N and PTI had approached Memon to join their ranks.

Memon has been a vocal campaigner for human rights and development, both during her tenure as MNA and after her resignation, and she has taken up several high-profile cases, including the Airblue crash in 2010. She is a vociferous critic of the current government and its policies and tends to take a populist stance on issues.

    In my opinion, it will end up as a frustration for an ambitious lady like Marvi Memon since her dreams soar high and she would expect to rise to higher positions with passage of time while the party suffers from democracy within itself and she will never become more prominent than Hamza Shahbaz and Maryam Nawaz (or Safdar).

A true democracy comes to life only when we have credible people competing each other to serve the nation. Credible/Competent competing each others give their opponents a reason to stay on the right track. Wish PTI and PLM-N all the best with their Good intentions.

    How do you judge a party?
    By how well it has done in the past. PML-N had two sessions in power, what did they do?
    The country came more indebted, they did not spend on education. Look at the schools in Pakistan now, many of the government schools in Punjab are in appalling condition.
    They built one run of the river dam, and even that was not entirely their doing.

    Will they raise more tax revenues to spend on health and education, reduce corruption, get rid of ghost schools?
    These are the issues that matter and I think PML-N and the PPP are absolute failures on this regard.
    She has made the wrong choice, the PML-N are utter failures.

    i loved her even when she was with musharraf, i saw conviction in her, thought she is different and can make difference. i wished PTI for her but then saw her talking against PTI, that disappointed me. Sorry, Marvi we love you alot, but not as we love IK. He means much more to us. still i would say, PMLN is not worthy of you.

    By joining PML-N, Marvi Memon, has simply betrayed with her former boss Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf. It was only Marvi Memon as she was the only lady, who came up in defence of Musharraf after he was sent out from the presidency. Marvi should not have hurt Gen Musharraf by joining the party of his arch rival Nawaz Sharif. Recommend

    Marvi Memon entry into politics was courtesy of her ambitious father toadying to Musharraf. She got in on a reserve seat and never had to face an election, which would have probably rigged in her favour, but then at least would had a chance to meet ordinary Pakistanis during a political campaign of sorts.
    Hers is ‘elite’ politics. Meet the leaders and inveigle your way in.

    on the other hand why did she leave PMLQ if she had to join PMLN? well the answer is a pretty interesting one, in PMLN she can make her political career, so the decision to join Shareefs speaks of her ambitiousness and opportunistic approach to get personal gains.

It is just a matter of time that PMLN will vanish from the political scene. Youth is not joining them. PTI will beat them in their strongholds i.e Lahore and Hazara, wait and watch. enjoy.
