    I congratulate Nawaz Sharif for his victory…Let us assume for arguments sake the votes tell no lies….If the next period he does do what he Said he was going to do with a majority and blames External and Internal forces, Market Forces etc etc…I would like all who voted for him to give a New party a chance in the election….If you do not, then I take my words of Victory back and call those voters a bunch of Blind Followers who do not know Right from Wrong….I would consider those PPP supporters as better than you as at least they voted with Intelligence in this election.

    @PoochPooch:
    I must say “andhe ko andhere men bari door ki soojhi “. The same is true about PTI government in KPK too? He will have to resolve the law and order situation and eradicate corruption in 90 days right?.
    By the way its an interesting situation in the country and looks very favorable. We are going to have three different parties ruling the provinces. So lets see if IK’s team can beat shehbaz sharif who has delivered in past.

    @Umair: I am not arguing on the point of who they gave their seats to at present as I do not truly know how much Dhandli there was in these elections. I am only saying that they voted for change…

    @Dr. Aalia Bangash: I agree with you that all have to show their performance. PMLN has to show the most as they will rule in the National Assembly as well as the largest province.
    Resoving the law and Order situation and eradicating corruption in 90 days is not the full statement…Let us not misinterpret as it covered large corruption and major law and order, It was stated it will take beyond 90 days to completely to feed down to the roots…Also Insallah I hope Shahbaz keeps his promise of Loadshedding to be fixed in 2 years ;-)

    “.Look who meets NS? The ambassadors of his friendliest countries, now see how he follows there instructions.”
    Please, be fair to NS. He has also met with the chinese premier and saudi ambassador. All the other stake holders (zardari, kayani etc.) in pakistan also met NS, except the TTP/Taliban representative. Now that IK is able to walk, the taliban/ttp may be able present their point of view NS, through IK!
