The vultures feeding over Lodhran!

Syed Haider Raza Mehdi |
The Vultures circling over Lodhran are anticipating a feast! 
The many wolves in sheep’s clothing are now thankfully, uncovered. Petty hypocrites, full of envy and jealousy, enjoying the discomfort of the Lodhran loss, gleefully saying ” I told you so”.  
Especially sad to see those who once supported him, having a field day and having a go at him. 
One video clip circulating over Social Media, showing a bald “wannabe” Tim Sebastian, dark beard, gruff voice and all pontificating dripping sarcasm, disguised as advice was particularly nauseating. The said gentleman having achieved nothing substantial in his own life, except an empty suited “tough guy” persona, did a cheap act to gain some cheap social media brownie point’s. A true vulture!
The Lodhran loss is perhaps the best thing that could’ve happened to Imran and PTI enabling the party and him to emerge with even greater resolve, course correct and fix the problems that lead to the defeat. I think he will and should emerge stronger and wiser. Naeem Bokhari perhaps said it best!
Losing Lodhran isn’t the end of the road as many vultures hope because Imran still has the back and support of those, who despite his errors of judgment, are convinced, as I am, that he’s Pakistan’s best hope. 
Otherwise, as I’ve always said, it’s back again to the stench and vomit of the Sharifs and the Zardaris. Chose your dish!
May Allah Grant Imran the wisdom to course correct, clearly see the errors that lead to this loss so he can continue his journey in making Pakistan a great country.
Nothing is lost. I see this as a great boon and a fantastic opportunity for Imran and PTI!
To quote a cliche ‘when the going gets tough, the tough get going!’
