NEW YORK - Punjab Governor Salman Taseer refused to address the party activists here at a local restaurant on the plea that the venue was not worth his status and if the activists wanted to listen to him, they would have to arrange the occasion at some five-star hotel. The Governor arrived here Thursday and the party workers showed their keenness to listen to him. The pathetic side of the situation was, the party workers had been unable to meet the expenses likely to be incurred at a five-star hotel. Later, a few party office-bearers, who were considered to be very close to the President Asif Zardari invited the Governor to a five-star hotel and had a meeting with him. Interestingly enough, former President Pervez Musharraf is also in Washington these days. Nobody has the least knowledge of Governors meeting with him and the workers are being kept in the dark in this regard.
