As the days are passing, it seems there is no life left in the coalition. While the government is constantly making statements about the coalition being firmly intact, this hardly seems so. Starting from the restoration of judiciary, impeachment of President and the security operations in FATA, the PML-N has not been consulted on many important issue and is being kept on sidelines. Nawaz Sharif has ruled out a meeting with Zardari in London, which shows that the coalition is on a shaky footing. -AMIN SULEIMAN, Rawalpindi, via e-mail, July 11.
