KARACHI: The Sharif bothers, under the delusion that Imran Khan’s following is growing solely as result of his recognition as cricketer, have inducted former Pakistan captain, Aamir Sohail, into their party. If cricket were the only reason for Imran’s growing following, his party would have won elections a long time back. The only thing that the PML-N will achieve by this is to wreck Aamir Sohail’s standing as a cricket commentator. Imran is recognised for several other achievements besides cricket. His track record of achievements is far more impressive than that of any current politician. Among his achievements is the establishment of a world-class charitable cancer hospital which has served thousands of ordinary poor Pakistanis.
