The get CJ plan

In his article ‘The get-CJ-by-July strategy’, Mohammad Malick says, “It’s a fact that he (Malik Riaz) had been assured the governorship of Punjab, both by Zaradri and Nawaz, in recognition of his mediatory services during their 2008 parlays”. I don’t see anything wrong in this.

In a country ruled by people with tainted reputations, another one of the same kind wouldn’t have made any difference. In fact, even if Malik Riaz was convicted, he could have still become, and remained, the chief executive of the country. We have seen this happen in the country only recently.
