i don't understand this guy...he is no doubt legend in Pakistan and a golden brain of Pakistan but his level of politics is a bit low if we compare it with his level of personality and knowledge..and he is still with PPP and he is so rigid in his standings he never accept the other opinion even though it is true..malik qayyum did bad but now if he is trying to be with you ..just take him with you why you are so rigid and create an opposite lobby ..Pakistani public was with you in past but victory was due to PML (n) and malik qayyum is from PML (N) remember that...
