Nothing happens in politics without reason and purpose. Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, the opposition leader from PML-N has held many open and clandestine meetings with the chief of army staff General Ashfaq Pervaiz Kayani for the last some months. Now for the last two times, he has been accompanied by the decision maker Shahbaz Sharif and now this last time, there was a one to one meeting between Shahbaz Sharif and General Kayani.
There are many similarities between Shahbaz Sharif and General Kayani. Both are well liked by the Pakistanis. Both are hardworking, practical and ill at ease with the corruption and lameness. They both are dynamic and have proved their mettle through their actions. Shahbaz Sharif has done wonders in governance in Punjab in these insolvent times, and Kayani has turned the wheels in the favors of army in FATA and Swat and has improved the image of army within the eyes of people.
Meeting between Shahbaz Sharif and General Kayani is not something to be taken lightly. They both are worried about the way current regime led by Zardari is performing, or not performing for that matter. Their meeting, according to the media sources, largly agreed upon some constructive change in country through constitutional way and they both agreed over apolitical role of armed forces.
That is a very welcome development for the Pakistan.
