The erstwhile Pakistan Muslim League, which created Pakistan under the able leadership of Quaid-e-Azam, had a slogan of Unity, Faith and Discipline bequeathed to it by their leader. Since the past several decades, though, PML has split into several parties like Q, N and F, etc. etc., which is highly regrettable. It is the end of the word 'Unity'. By dividing into so many factions, the PML has squandered its vote bank while its adversary PPP has managed to hold on to its traditional vote bank. It is proposed that PML should discard its alphabetical isotopes and coalesce into one single PML to counter the PPP. Only a united PML could instill confidence in the people to unite under its flag. This could only happen if the Sharif brothers and Chaudhry brothers could bury their differences in the interest of Pakistan so that a formidable united front could be forged against the PPP. This would also auger well for the genesis of two party system in Pakistan that would discourage horse trading of smaller parties and independents who would be forced to join either of the two parties. -DR M.
