Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE), like other segments of the society, also seems severely rocked by the break up of the ruling political alliance, as the KSE-100 index down by 384 points and pegged at 9431. The market today opened in an extremely pensive environment, as the KSE like others in the country felt duped and deceived by the dud leaders of the country, from whom, they had pinned great hopes of making the democracy work and steering the country out of the lurking dangers instead of fast taking back the country to the fearsome 1999 situation, when the country was about to be declared a failed state.
