We expected better from you, Marvi Memon

Published: March 4, 2012

Marvi Memon came into politics under the patriarchal wings of Musharraf, but his fall has not aborted her growth. PHOTO: FILE

Marvi Memon is one of the few politicians I admire. She is one of those rare leaders who are actually seen on the roads protesting for a cause that they care about instead of just arguing on television shows.

Her credentials as a former MNA and the youngest female CEO in Pakistan after launching the county’s first satellite tracking fleet management service speak for themselves. But what sets Memon apart is her moral high ground. Not only did she give up her seat in the National Assembly and resign from the PML-Q because she believed it was working with a government wasn’t in the interest of the people of Pakistan but she has continued to stand up for what she think was right.

From her nationalistic stance against drone strikes to her efforts in the floods there is one thing Memon is not and that is lukewarm.

Whether I agreed with Marvi Memon or not I always respected her statements. Here was a smart and intelligent woman who seemed to be more interested in making a difference than in attaining personal political power.

Today she joined the PML-N.

How wrong I was. Today she made an announcement that has disappointed not only me, but many across the country. She announced that she was joining PML-N, when all of her supporters were hoping, wishing, looking forward to her joining PTI.

We expected better from you, Marvi Memon.

Your decision to join the PML-N makes me wonder if there is any hope left in our country’s political scenario. What confuses me is the fact that while it was difficult for you to work with the current government because you believed them to be inefficient, corrupt and a threat to the sovereignty of Pakistan, are you really expecting that your new party will form a government that will be different? You wanted a change – a real change in Pakistan and yet, you decided not to align yourself with a party that is our nation’s only hope? We have tried almost every politician, our votes have gone to waste many times in the past, we have made the wrong decision, put our trust in corrupt leaders, but for the first time in a long time things look different – and you decided to play it safe. You chose a party that would get you a “confirmed” seat in government rather than take a risk with a party that has captured the hearts of your supporters.

I know you had differences with Imran Khan recently, but being the smart politician you are, I did not expect you to join PML-N because you always talked about bringing a change.

Is this your course to bringing the big change? Going from PML-Q to PML-N? All you did was change a letter of the alphabet.

Everybody in our country has always complained about lack of leaders who truly love Pakistan, who want to rule, not for personal glory or gain, but out of genuine love for the country.

I am sorry Marvi, Nawaz isn’t that leader. Imran Khan is.

    Totally disappointing – if she had differences with Imran Khan i would have rather seen her carve her own space in the political arena versus going into the arms of a party which has done everything against its own principles – one day they take a particular stance and the next day adopt either a softer stance or the opposite stance ….

    I wont crucify Marvi on her choice, but definitely disappointed at her choiceRecommend

    Truly. Marvi Memon has disappointed many of her supporters.
    Even then, let’s see what does she do playing politics under PML(N)’s flag.
    After all, the fate of this nation is never to be changed.
    This country is a miracle of Allah Almighty and will be Blessed by Him always, we hope.
    As far as politicians are concerned, they just have to enjoy the luxuries of being in power as long as it may be, by making the poor poorer.

    I was a PTI activist and still have good insights into the party.Imran khan notified her to be the information secretary and than refused to do so. There is an official notification which is original and signed by the chairman PTI. The internal politics in PTI is different and difficult to understand. Why should marvi memon remain in a party where she has been shown a hostile attitude from the very first day. Recommend

    “When I saw the PML-N for the first time, they were fighting for democracy against president [Pervez] Musharraf. I didn’t understand what they were doing. But now, after three years, I have learnt that politics can’t be done with an establishment’s party,” Memon stated.

    her statement made me laugh so hard that i nearly fall off my chair :D

    I have got extremely disappointed. Marvi has actually exposed herself. Now she will work for change after joining a party that is looking for its sixth turn in ruling this country. She said that she has found Nawaz sharif very down to earth and capable leader. Marvi please open up ur eyes…..and one more thing she talked about IK and said he talks about fake change….This statement was disgusting and amusing too …now Marvi thinks that Mr. Nawaz would bring the true change :)….good luck Marvi….ur political career is finished in my eyes and u have joing the status quo….congratulations on joining the crrupt class of this country….plz do celebrate !!!Recommend

    Advice to the author
    Prep urself for another disappointment when PTI fails too whenever it gets in power! We need something like what happened in Egypt or Tunisia! We need to get rid of all politicians from inherited wealthy waderas/sardars whose grand parents had been a “loyals of the farangiiz”, to the drug lords, freakingly rich industrialists, weapon traffickers, smugglers, bhata mafias and underworld dons! Just say them good bye people! Believe me whatever this country has achieved has always been because of ppl like u and me in every generations. From mazdoors and kisaans to doctors, engineers, accountants, economists etc etc. I wish some ppl from us rise up. I just can wish and pray at the moment!Recommend

  • http://blogs.tribune.com.pk/author/242/nicholas-sharaf/ Nicholas Sharaf

    Extremely biased article. While I agree with the sentiment, the article’s view point is that any choice other than PTI is altogether wrong. I do not accept that.

    Marvi you have talked about a lot of things but instead of fighting for your beliefs, you have simply become a member of the status quo. Recommend

  • Fahd Bin Riasat

    Indeed she is probably the only politician who has been seen protesting on streets for the rights of a common man. A learned woman; a lot was expected from her; if not PTI; she should have initiated her own party rather than joining PML-N. Well the decision has been made; wish her all the best; hope she can bring about a change in PML-N ranks.Recommend

  • Hibba

    I don’t think a politician like Marvi Memon will be held back by joining PML-N. She was able to achieve what she wanted when she was part of the PML-Q, which isn’t a party that stands for change itself. Just because she didn’t join the party of your personal choice, it’s no reason to give up on the woman who has done much for women’s rights.Recommend

  • Ali Tipu

    I am disappointed but not with her joining the PML(N),but her oh-so-highly-principled speeches and twitter alerts she used to make us fool. Its obviously her decision and I for one respect it being a PTI supporter but the thing that pisses me the most is the sheer hypocrisy and blatant lies that is so very part of the Shareefs and now Marvi’s political career. Just look at her statements regarding establishment and Shareefs today and you would clearly see the contradiction. It means either she was lying previously or she is lying now. In either case, she has lost the trust. As far as the Shareefs and their supporters are concerned, nothing can be done to cure them but i hope, just hope that they will find some shame NOW NOT to label PTI as Musharraf league. Too mush of asking from them, I know ! Recommend

    I guess she represents those people of our society which are still nervous about PTI. At least Kasuri, Qureshi and Hashmi had the guts to take a chance with PTI.

    PMLN as Memon’s party of choice has proven that Imran Khan is the ONLY sensible leader left now. Although I think it is a bit disappointing to see some old faces in PTI, I also know that a party can not win in Pakistan without including landlords among their ranks.Recommend

She is brave enough to make an alliance unlike Imran Khan who have outlawed most of the politicians by blabbermouthing and even Marvi Memon.

  • http://www.facebook.com Inqilab Khan

    Marvi Memon contention that one of the main reason she joined PML(N) is due to so called good governance in Punjab is a somersault from her earlier views. Similarity between her and PML(N) Punjab politicians is that both are fond of self projection and they behave like Mughal Badshah and Shahzada’s. They have no concern with welfare of common people but believe that our only problem is establishment of food street and traffic jams. As she have joined them she should impress upon her new cronies to attend the following:
    • Literacy level could not be enhanced by distributing 300,000 free lap tops, purchased on exorbitant rates, but it could be done only by imposing “Education emergency” and bringing poor students to primary schools by giving them some stipend
    • Munafiq Aalaa should shift his camp office from 10th floor of newly constructed Arfa Software Technology Park, Lahore to his already seven camp offices, as this modern building was meant for foreign IT specialist firms and to generate revenue and not for a protocol greedy Munafiq Aalaa moving around with 100 security personnel around him as no foreign firm will establish offices in such environment.
    • Munafiq-e-Aalaa son should avoid misusing protocol of a President/ Prime Minister for him as he is a simple Member of retarded Assembly if he requires 100 security personnel around him he should pay for them from his own pocket.

    Thing is, either you never respected her or you just hate pmln so much that you have come up with this far cry of a post. If you ever thought Marvi’s politics seemed true and for the people, if you ever liked the street protesting activist that Marvi is, you should not be disappointed because she joined a party that does not please you. Only be disappointed if she changes her politics for the drawing room, which let me assure you PTI fan people is not what will happen. If Legharis, Kasuris, Bhinders, SMQ, Swatis and Sardars can be baptized by you lot there, so can we the Lions say today that a true political activist who cares about people decided to put faith in PMLN!

    Try living with it, if cannot, go get yourself more old ‘have tried and failed’ leaders from pmlq n ppp n give them all the fancy positions and talk all about improving and changing the situation solely caused by the ex ministers in your ranks. Our one political worker has caused this much stir on twitter and social media shows the difference of scales of the political understanding of the supporters… hope you stop crying someday and really see there are good people in other ranks too. But how would you know, with all the negativity and blind criticism over pmln you dont even realize the last time they ruled Pakistan how better it was!! 12 years of your legharis bhinders kasuris swatis n smq have brought us here not Mian Nawaz Sharif and certainly not Shehbaz Sharif.
