Dangerous Alliances


There are no eternal allies or perpetual enemies. Only (self) interests are eternal and perpetual.

Our sources at the Truth tracker reveal that efforts are underway for reconciliation between PML-N leadership and the powerful quarters of the establishment. In a recent bid, the much-discussed meet between Prime Minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbassi, with the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Saqib Nisar, was a step in that direction.

The latest Leaks disclose that Shahbaz Sharif, however, is making strides on that front. We have learnt that he has made another step in that direction by meeting a senior leader of the armed forces.

But he is not stopping at that.

Using his diplomacy to the fullest Shahbaz utilized his social connections recently when wife Tehmina Durrani had an audience with a member of the superior judiciary for political reconciliation at the residence of a mutual businessman friend at his Jail road Lahore residence. What fruition these efforts would bear is yet to be seen? Until then PML-N might keep their fingers crossed.
