Bow and arrow... By Air-Cdre (r) Yaqoob

The PPP chairman, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, has finally spoken. He has tried to launch a multi-pronged attack on his political rivals. He has also vowed he will help people be rid of 'them'.
However, he can be asked where he was five months ago when the lion was roaring in Punjab, the tsunami was sweeping Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the kite was dominating Karachi and urban Sindh. It seems that an unsuccessful attempt is being made to fit Bilawal into the shoes of his late mother. Unfortunately, he does not possess the traits and personality of his mother. He should, instead, try to be his natural self to convey his message – if at all he has one. His party's previous government set records of poor governance and corruption and left the country in a mess. It will be a daunting task for him to rehabilitate the image of his party. I think the Bhutto sympathy vote can no more carry the day for the PPP.
