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.

    PMLn tenures are famous for stealing projects from smaller provinces. No sensible person would join PMLn to work for the rights of the weaker provinces.

    She wanted 2nd position in PTI which she didnt get, the letter proved to be self drafted.

    Sad to say but Marvi Memon is also part of the “feudal mindset” she utters about.
    Goodbye Marvi!Recommend

  • Ahmad

    The slow building up of arrogance and condescension in this article is quite amusing. On the one hand, the author respects Marvi’s decisions, but only so far as she agrees with them. Deviate from that precise line and you’re condemned. And as such, this whole article was a rather polished version of most PTI supporters who ‘contribute’ in the comments section of ET and other papers. What makes the author think that IK will bring any change? Because he says he will? As much as I respect IK for his philanthropic work, politicians sooner or later go down the same path, as IK proved when he let the likes of Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Khursheed Mahmood Kasuri join his party, a party which is fast becoming PML-Q 2.0, and which is in any case backed by the establishment. Pakistan did make considerable strides forward, all things considered, in Nawaz Sharif’s first government. Just because most of the comments come from people who are too young to remember or can’t be bothered to read up on that period doesn’t change that fact.
    Here’s a thought. Marvi Memon left the PML-Q because she was opposed to their coalition with the PPP. Why would she then join PTI, which has scooped up all the remnants and disgruntled members of the party she just left?
    This article should come with a disclaimer about the author being a supporter of IK, lest anybody confuse it for actually being something substantial and neutral.Recommend

  • Just another Comment

    This lady perfectly fits the definition of an Opportunist

    op·por·tun·ist – One who takes advantage of any opportunity to achieve an end, often with no regard for principles or consequences.

    One does not change their Ideal every day, she is not a 10 year old kid who just realised after 5 years that she was supporting the wrong man (musharraf). How very convenient for a mature woman! She is not destined for greatness and will be just another footnote in our country’s politics as “also ran…” Imran Khan is our first, last and only hope so stay focused people!Recommend

    @Asad:
    Everybody knows what happened there. She prepared the letter herself and took it to IK for signing. He modified the draft at the spot and signed it to ensure that the scope of responsibilities mentioned in the letter is what she will be appointed for. It was yet to be officially issued on party’s letterhead. IK’s only mistake was that he had not run the initial appointment specifics by CEC beforehand. Therefore, when he did run it by CEC, they didn’t agree to it. As a result, Marvi back-tracked because she didn’t want to be just a ‘worker’ in PTI, rather a very senior official. So now, PTI has become an arrogant party with a bunch of ideologues just because they were unable to offer her the position of her desire?Recommend

    @ author
    Just because Marvi didn’t choose PTI, she is a disappointment. What a sweeping statement. Take a look at PTI. All old and tested politician have joined it. Why? To ensure that it get seats. Politics is a game of seats and PTI is no different. As much as i love IK as a cricketer one thing is for sure that all his politics revolve around rhetoric and criticising other parties. I am no fan of PML-N but i personally think that Marvi made a wise decision. She chose a party which actually exists as compared to PTI who only exists on internet. So stop targeting her. This is my request to all blind supporters of PTI including you author.Recommend

Why do people forget so soon? Anyway she fits PMLN. Like herself, her new leader was also handpicked and made into a politician by a general.Recommend

  • MarkH

    By the comments it appears that it’s perfectly fine to ditch a group for PTI but the other way around suddenly becomes reason for condemnation. Positive things can happen without Imran Khan’s presence. I’m not a Sharif fan but she’ll have much more of a chance to get her views heard than with PTI. Imran Khan is something of an unrealistic spotlight hog and while PTI tried to be a poster boy for change, they haven’t kept up the momentum or addressed anything people have been waiting for and are fading already with Imran Khan’s unrealistic promises and statements causing him to slowly regress back into Mr. Dharna.Recommend

Amazing!! they’ll keep on screwing our country and then will live a good life out somewhere for 10 years in Saudi or US or UK.

    Why don’t you talk about your female MNA’s/ MPA’s who got into the Parliament on fake degrees. Why are you maintaining criminal silence about it. What about other notables who were with PML Q/ Musharraf and are joining PML (N). Yesterday your leader has said that Chaudhris are welcome if they tender an unconditional apology. Any body who repents (If he does) and joins N he becomes sacred, muqaddas, pawatir. Anybody else who joins PTI is Lota, Sinner and what not.

    Believe you me. The days of corrupt family dynasties are limited. Time is running out for them.
    They should read the writing on the wall (No ruling elite,ironically, does to the likes of Ben Ali of Tunis, Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, Qaddafi of Libya) and must run for their lives to Jeddah, Paris, London or wherever their safe havens are. Tsunami is building up. It has only moved a bit and a shudder of fear has run up the spines of all corrupt, so called, leaders be it AAZ,YRG, Maulana FR, Asfandyar Wali or the Great Goon called NS.

    Tsunami is destined to arrive and sweep any and everything from Corrupt Leaders to Power Brokers, Wheeler Dealers and whatever cancer that has eroded the moral value of our nation. Just fasten your seat belt and watch Waterloo of the Corrupt mafia.Recommend

    Mr. Saleem,
    Look at the party structures of PMLN vs PTI. In the first instance, you have Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, Saad Rafique, Khawaja Asif, Ahsan Iqbal, Nisar Ali Khan et al. People who never abandoned PML-N for PML-Q. Now Marvi Memon might have joined PMLN but she will never have as much influence as she would have had in PTI, which is precisely why SMQ joined PTI i.e he has far more influence there than he did in PPP, probably more than Imran Khan himself. On the other hand, you have Imran Khan, and thats it, who by the way is an army drone masquerading as a democrat. So to sum up, these lotas will never have amount of influence in PMLN that they will have in PTI. A case in point: Nawaz Sharif’s very consistent stand against the army, and Nisar Ali Khan’s recent statement that the DG ISI should not be given an extension, and the latter’s support from Bushra Gohar’s statement that the DG ISI should be fired post-OBL. On the other hand, SMQ in his very first PTI rally goes and says that our nuclear weapons are not safe with Zardari in charge, the same man he served for three years only a few weeks previously form that rally. Thats the difference. PML-N used to be backed by the establishment 20 years ago (get over it already) and PTI IS the establishment, plain and simple. Do you get the difference now?Recommend

    Marvi is entitled to her choice. It is her right to do so. Imran khan is being treated like a demigod there. He is only human. He reminds me of Hitler to his masses in the early 1930′s.

    Stop making it easier for any of these parties by aligning yourself with them because you like certain people in them. I am neither a PML-N supporter nor a Marvi fan.

    You should not believe everything that you hear. First of all Marvi never launched the satellite tracking service, but it was her father-in-law who did it. Secondly she was CEO in title only and her husband and father-in-law were the real managers. Thirdly she got into the assembly with the support of a dictator on a reserved seat.

    Clearly Marvi will go with whoever gets her into power and in this case it is the Nawaz league as the PML ( Q) has fallen out of favor.

    The logical thing for her to do would have been to join PTI as it is also an establishment party supported by right wingers. But she seems to have placed her bets on PML(N) instead.Recommend

How she could join them is beyond me. I juss think her point of view is here is a party who will let me get on with my work without much interference and thts why she joined them and perhaps the only party where she will get a ticket. I think Marvi felt PML-N was the only party she could contribute to her fullest. This won’t end well if Marvi is actually a self-righteous person. There will be friction soon.Recommend
