ISLAMABAD - The Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehmans hobnob with the government has brought the political orbits to evolve around an axis of political perplexities whereby the friends in the garb of 'foes at the opposition benches act like puppets to politically give in what only suits those in the power. The JUI-F and the PML-N represent two stark contradictory sets of the oppositions political divide, the best deemed scenario for the ruling elites to enjoy 'honeymoon period without any oppositional check. Despite that the JUI-F has 'killed two birds with one stone - by getting patronised by the treasury benches and leading oppositions brigade in the parliaments Upper House simultaneously - the broader political spectrum suggests that being on high in political pursuits Maulanas party is actually left in the lurch with not many options to go for. Even though the ruling class successfully maneuvered to get a friendly leader of opposition elected in the Senate, the political weather in the Upper House forecasts that the days ahead for Ghafoor Haideri would not bring in store a picturesque political landscape. Here, it calls for a revisit into the recent past when PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif had bypassed his partys parliamentary leader in Senate Raja Zafarul Haq to bring forth his near kin Ishaq Dar for the slot of leader of opposition. Not only that, the PML-N chief showed quite a 'personal interest in getting Dar elevated as an opposition leader. Now that all these efforts have gone in vain, those who know Nawaz well say that he is not the kind of person who easily lets things go. \\ The politician is known for cherishing political grudges, keeping them for long, and never sparing an opportunity to hit the deck when its time to pay back. The PML-N chiefs Thursday meeting with Maulana qualifies the aforesaid observation of this correspondent. To his utter surprise, Fazl had to encounter an all cold and arrogantly indifferent Sharif whose conversations with the former were marked with interruptions, 'polite bitterness and refusals. That the PML-N top leader did not straightaway accept Fazls invitation to attend next months Kashmir conference and offered an I would think over it response instead. In case the PML-N does not show up for the conference, the events credibility, given that the JUI-F chief being the main organiser in his capacity as Chairman Kashmir Committee, would land at stake with fingers of criticism pointed at the government 'friendly Maulana. More to that, not to forget that PML-N leader Raja Zafarul Haq still heads a powerful opposition bloc, the Independent Opposition Group, as its chairman in the Senate. The group is a combination of 13 senators that belong to four political parties - PML-N, National Party (Balochistan), Pakht-unkhwa Milli Awami Party and Jamat-e-Islami - who had strongly supported Ishaq Dar during the opposition leaders election in the Upper House. The same group will keep pulling Ghafoor Haideris leg in the future political discourse.
