Musharraf left the country with the economy at the worst point in all of his eight years. That was the starting point of Zardari and the economy has actually gone worse on every day since. His conduct of business is beyond all definitions of constitution and other norms. He has blithely violated them all in enforcing the NRO and not restoring the deposed judges. Through his pliant judges and his coterie of sycophants and money-grabbers, he is maneuvering to perpetuate himself in power. A President who cannot walk ten feet with out a hundred millions dollars security around him is a blight of this poor nation. -SHAHBANO LEGHARI, Quetta, via e-mail, January 24.
