ANP-PPP combine has seemingly succeeded in making some political capital on the Sharia agreement in Swat. This will help them arrest their fast eroding credibility. They appear to confine the agreement to nizam-e-adal while TNSM would not be content until Sharia is enforced in every aspect of life in Swat. That determination sends tremors in the 'enlightened-liberal' components of the ruling nexus, which includes PPP, ANP and MQM. I think they will resort to subversion of the deal no sooner than the Senate election is over. I am sure their signature traits of lying, backtracking and deceiving would be in play soon. -ABDUL MUSTAFA, Peshawar, via e-mail, February 16.
