After quitting Sindh government, Muttahida Qaumi Movement has also parted ways with PPP in Azad Jammu and Kashmir. This development gives birth to a plausible question: Is this the net result of PPP chairman Bilawal Zardari's October 18 speech at PPP's Karachi public meeting where he criticised not only MQM but also the leadership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)?

Apropos 'No one to be allowed to stop journey of progress: PM' carried by Business Recorder on October 19, 2014, the headline suggests that the prime minister himself has mocked his own government's actions in relation to a protracted political turmoil in the country. How unbelievable it is that he is still adamant to his stance in the absence of any resolution of the situation that has given birth to profound uncertainty and hopelessness. According to the report, the PM has said that the people have given five-year mandate to the PML-N and that "no hurdle can hamper the process of national development."
Apropos 'Islamic State flag surfaces again in occupied Srinagar' carried by Business Recorder on Sunday, it should be a matter of grave concern for the occupied Indian authorities that despite unprecedented security cover, the Islamic State or ISIS flag yet again surfaced in Old City areas in Srinagar.
Apropos 'British EU exit would be 'historic mistake': Barroso' carried by the newspaper yesterday, the European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso has argued that Britain is better off in the EU and warned that alienating its allies would be a "historic mistake".
Apropos 'IMF warns global economy at risk' carried by Business Recorder on October 12, it needs to be noted that the global economy is still in troubled waters. According to the report, "the International Monetary Fund's member countries have underscored the need for taking concrete actions to bolster the global economic recovery. They have urged governments to take care not to squelch growth by tightening budgets too drastically."
Apropos editorial 'The Multan battle' carried by the newspaper on Saturday, one must not lose sight of the fact that although senior politician is down because of his defeat in the NA-149 Multan constituency he is not out.
It is the fact that the former President of Pakistan, Mr Asif Ali Zardari, had sanctioned medical allowance with effect from 1st July 2010 to "all" civil pensioners of the federal government including civilians paid from Defence Estimates and Civil Armed Forces, at the rate of 25% BPS 1-15 and 20% BPS 16-22 of the drawing pension, which is being paid regularly to the retired employees throughout Pakistan but the Port Qasim Authority (PQA), just to deceit pensioners; has played a trick and doggedly deleted the word "all" from Finance Division (Regulation Wing) OM No F-16(1)-Reg.6/2010-778 dated the 5th July 2010 and only paying this allowance to those employees who were retired after superannuation and those who were retired under Early Retirement Scheme (ERS) after completion of 25, 26 or 28 years of service have been disregarded and dragged into worries and woes. They are sighing in frustration and running from pillar to post but to no avail.
