I listened to Mr Zardari's dinner speech in a banquet hosted by Chief Minister, Sindh in Karachi. Here are a few submissions; constitutionally speaking, the President should only present himself as totally non-partisan. He should not present himself on national or international fora as a slogan-mongering PPP worker. Mr. Zardari also needs to understand that it is his party's misgoverence and dereliction of duty that has virtually killed the poor. If his government wanted to undo Musharraf legacies, he could have immediately done it. He could not do it because he was beholden to the NRO and had to protect interests of the USA in this region. -ZOHRA KHAN, Quetta, via e-mail, November 23.
