Mian Nawaz Sharif is probably the only hindrance in the kid brother's passion for good governance. But there's hardly any grumbling against the Raiwind Palace extending patronage to the devious politicos in the party. Be it letting the Prison Minister off the hook following his alleged involvement in smuggling or the recent transfer of the Secretary C&W for laying hands on the corrupt contractor mafia in D G Khan. Fawad Hasan Fawad, a bureaucrat par excellence widely respected for his professional competence and integrity, got his marching orders only because Mian Nawaz couldn't reconcile himself to the idea of retaining Mr Fawad to the annoyance of Sardar Zulfikar Khosa, who has got the best of both worlds. Perhaps, it was a payback time for the elderly politician's loyalty to the House of Raiwind. The kid brother couldn't careless about Sardar Khosa threatening to quit the party. Not because he had personal liking for Fawad, who had joined his administrative team after leaving a lucrative private sector job and was now busy purging his department of corruption, but because he was aware of the Khosas' dubious loyalty. It was only Farooq Leghari's opposition in the past that had led to Ch Pervaiz Elahi's dragging his feet on supporting Sardar Khosa's appointment as Governor Punjab. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Sindh Local Bodies Minister Agha Siraj Durrani says that President Zardari has signed the summary for the appointment of administrators in local councils while President's spokesman Farhatullah Baber denies it. One of them must be economizing with truth. Durrani's claim to fame is his personal friendship with Mr Zardari and he had nearly become the Sindh CM when Qaim Ali Shah elbowed him out. In Baber's case it is the baggage Mr Zardari carries from the past. But who has more access to the secrets of the Presidency is anybody's guess * * * * * * * * * * * * * * True to his reputation of a freewheeling lifestyle Commerce Minister Makhdoom Amin Fahim is currently visiting Miami and Virgin Islands to explore export markets. This is when Pakistan had missed the export target by a wide margin. If one is to believe the Commerce Ministry's announcement then Miami and Virgin Islands are not just known for good beaches but also provide a corridor for investors to access the US market with greater ease.
