There is this PPP Senator who often gets emotional in talk shows every time some bit of criticism is made on his party. He practically starts foaming from the mouth if someone criticises President Zardari. In one recent talk show, when he was holding forth on the need for simplicity and regaling the viewers with 'facts on austerity being practised at the Presidency and PM House, he was duly checked by the anchorperson who asked him, How can you advocate simplicity and austerity when you are yourself living in a seven star hotel in Islamabad for the last eighteen months and your bill is being paid by a corporation. This had him shouting like a mad man and he actually threatened the anchorperson on air with serious consequences. When a person loses the argument, he usually starts shouting. -BEGUM NUSRAT JAHANGIR, Abbotabad, June 12.
