    While criticizing the PPP for unprincipled politics, The PML-N forgot that their leader’s meeting with PML-Q’s information secretary Tariq Azeem to discuss the possibility of cooperation. Is shaking hands with those who ditched PML-N to ride on the coattails of a military dictator principled politics? It may be expedient for an opposition party to question the government’s performance and call it corrupt, but the stories of PML-N’s past and present corruption are part of urban legend and not very different from those of the PPP. PML-N is obviously not happy because the coming together of the PPP and PML-Q may jeopardize its seat of power in the country’s biggest province, Punjab. Regardless of which party joins or leaves the ruling coalition, such a change could destabilize the democratic edifice and is therefore not in the interest of the country. If the system does not survive till the next general elections, it would be a big victory for the undemocratic forces and strengthen the impression that politicians are incapable of running the country.
