Footprints: A By-Poll Without Substance

Shakil Ahmad

NAUSHAD Shah’s take on the by-poll in the Multan city constituency of NA-149 contrasts with the noise the contest has generated in national politics and the media. Only days after his city held one of the largest public meetings in its history and amid all the colours flying in the area as it prepares to vote on Thursday, Shah, a 60-year-old Baghbanpura resident, is not happy. The way the ‘main contesting’ parties are conducting themselves has depressed him.

“What kind of politics is this?” he asks. “Neither the PML-N nor the PTI has its men in the contest: the PML-N is backing Makhdoom Javed Hashmi, who ditched it not too long ago to become PTI president. The PTI is supporting PPP turncoat Malik Amir Dogar. Where are the parties?”
