The PIL, in return, Twitter/@Cyalm Top News The media in Pakistan and outside was abuzz for some 48 hours over a story published by the English newspaper Dawn,regarding a meeting between heads ofthe civil government and the military According to the story the civilian government confronted the military leadership on the issue of Pakistan’s isolation due to the policy of continued support to terrorists; hence the need to clean up the house Furthermore the scene was described as serious finger pointing of civilian leaders towards generals including thehead of the ISI Lt Gen Rizwan Akhtar as a result of which it was agreed for the ISI chief to take a trip to all of his provincial directorates and instruct them regarding not obstructing police action against the Jaish or Lashkar e Taiba Apparently the Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif was very candid and firm But within 12 hours came the rebuttal from the offices of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif followed by the order placing journalist Cyril Almeida on the exit control list (ECL) a list maintained since General Zia ul Haq’s days for barring certain people from leaving the country The story reminds one of another one in which the cat did not teach the lion how to climb up a tree Indeed the entire development has done nothing but compromise the position of Nawaz Sharif and strengthen the sense within the armed forces that he is not to be trusted From now on the GHQ Rawalpindi would probably keep a more watchful eye on matters of national security foreign policy and other issues considered strategic by the politically powerful military Surely only Almeida can tell who his source was but there are three theories doing the rounds in Islamabad The first one is that the beans were spilt by a small team including the information minister Pervaiz Rasheed and the prime minister’s favourite senior bureaucrat reputed to be the de facto premier Fawad Hassan This was meant as a counter-coup of sorts against the military to publicly embarrass them and leave them running for cover domestically Second the disclosure was a result of a split in the PML-N that wanted to create trouble for Nawaz Sharif Finally that it is the ISI itself that briefed the journalist since what was discussed in the meeting and agreed as an agenda point belongs to the realm of the impossible In this age of technology what would require General Akhtar to tour the provinces Or is it even possible for the political government to leash Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azhar without active cooperation of the military Indeed what was being suggested was passive cooperation that amounts to no cooperation at all The civilian government suddenly turning up at the doors of extremist organisations to arrest people will create a ruckus which Islamabad may not be able to control In fact those who think some secret cell in the prime minister’s office fed the journalist forget what he wrote in his article two days later: Almeida put the blame of not managing militants in Punjab entirely at the door of the political government which amounts to a brutal analysis of at best a stupidly inward-looking administration Irrespective of which side Almeida was batting for the entire episode indicates two crucial facts First Raheel Sharif will not get an extension One of the reasons that such a risky game was played on the first hand is because elements in the military would now like to see Raheel Sharif’s back He may have struggled hard for extending his stay through ruthless propaganda campaigns but the fact is Pakistan stands now at a critical time when a choice is imperative As we have seen in the past 12 years media becomes active around the time of the selection and it is not just the prime minister’s office that plays the game of feeding the media but corps commanders as well who are interested in the job Second this story of placing Almeida on the ECL is only likely to weaken the prime minister further The conversation reported by Almeida sounds factual but not its emphasis — that is the political government especially Shahbaz Sharif probably does not have it in him to talk sharply with the DG ISI If wishes were horses In fact such a story is likely to put the government in greater trouble for even imagining it could consider itself politically equal to the armed forces So even if the chief will get changed the newer one would have to wash his hands of such imaginations of the military’s weakness and inform his own constituency — the boys in khaki — that they are still the power to reckon with The political government in Islamabad can sense the isolation but when was the last time that the military cared about what the foreign office bureaucrats said As for the GHQ they believe that the world would be a better place if it were not for Indian intervention and it would turn into a nicer place with China on Pakistan’s side It is the height of the great game in the Eurasian continent which makes everything fair in love and war Rawalpindi needs Beijing’s patronage and provides patronage to jihadi groups to fight its battles The police in Punjab remains a post-colonial structure politicised and psychologically influenced by military men In fact there are many senior police officers in Punjab who are beholden to the Sharif government and the military With this tension in the background the situation is not likely to change As for Almeida things are likely to blow over after some tension The entire world is on his side and continuing to harass him will not prove good for the prime minister It will at best bring back memories of the incarceration of a prominent journalist Najam Sethi in the late 1990s under Nawaz Sharif’s watch While that old story remains a mystery too it seems the prime minister hasn’t gotten rid of the habit of owning sins committed by the army — and then getting punished for it (This article first appeared in the print

Congress insiders point out that Bhunia had been a minister in the Mamata Cabinet of 2011 and claim he has been in regular touch with the Trinamool Congress supremo “He is looking for a good excuse to defect to the TMC At present the best reason would be if he is suspended from the party and thus these acerbic comments against the top leadership I think the party will wait till the last moment before taking such a stern step which will allow him to defect to the TMC and retain his MLA seat” a senior Congress leader said Bhunia the Congress MLA from Sabang in West Midnapore had first criticised any kind of a Congress understanding with the Left long before the two parties talked about it formally He and his followers had accused senior party leader Abdul Mannan of “giving up his principles” for roping in Left leaders for his Save Democracy Forum Mannan had defended the combined forum as essential “to create a broader platform and bring in all secular democratic parties and individuals together against Fascist rule of the present disposition” In December 2015 Bhunia had lashed out at the CPM for its “silence” on the National Herald issue and praised Mamata for her support to the Congress on it Mamata had called the summons to Sonia in the case as a sad development However ultimately the views of state Congress leaders such as Chowdhury had prevailed over those

had also suggested to Sonia that the party’s minority cell led by his close aide Khaled Ebadullah should be used aggressively in the polls The dismal performance of the Congress-Left alliance in the state elections appears to have emboldened Bhunia While the Congress gained more from the tie-up than the Left winning 44 seats compared to its partner’s 32 the fact that the TMC increased its tally
