KARACHI - Veteran politician and spiritual leader of Hurs, Pir Pagara on Monday predicted the imposition of 1953-like martial law in the country. He predicted the United States would also support the upcoming martial law after realising ground realties in the country. Talking to newsmen after a meeting with former federal minister and Awami Muslim League (AML) chief, Sheikh Rashid Ahemd at Kingari House in Karachi, Pagara said the current political set up would not sustain for long. The PML-F head further said that there was no bright future for Sharif brethren in the political scenario of the country. Replying to a query, Pir Pagaro said that it's up to PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari to like that how many days he wanted to stay in power. He said the PPP leadership lacked the abilities required to rid the country of crises. Pagara said that it depended on Musharraf how much time he would give to Asif Ali Zardari to keep intact his coalition government. He said that President Pervez Musharraf would never quit nor the deposed judges would be reinstated adding the long march of the lawyers was only the wastage of time and money. He added that with the passage of time, lawyers' strength and sentiments would weaken rendering their movement aimless. On Kalabagh Dam, the PML-F chief said that government had no money to build dam. Earlier, Sheikh Rashid thanked Pir Pagara for honouring him with the meeting. Pagara also wished success for the AML.
