By nominating Qaim Ali Shah as Chief Minister of Sind, PPP has demonstrated that it has not learnt lessons from its past mistakes. Highly educated and professional leadership is the need of the hour and not somebody like Qaim Ali Shah. It appears that Sind will continue to suffer from petty politics and age old policies of Sind Rular and Sind Urban will continue to haunt Sind. People belonging to Urban communities must take quick and swift business/political decision or else they will continue to suffer and will eventually be wiped out.

Was the decision taken by any sane person? Does this mean that Karachi has to suffer for another five years of gross mismanagement, corruption, misgovernance, law and order.... Qaim Ali Shah has done nothing in last 5 years... He and the Governer are living in a fools' paradise, in their own world... where they cant see and hear any common man's problem. We expected change in coming five years... PPP has learnt nothing from their past failures.

Again the same face to rule the Sindh government, he did not even take any serious notice on the targeted killing of the innocent people in the metropolitan.

Who will the chief minister of the sindh, we the people of Karachi need a peace and prosperity in the city otherwise, chief minister will be responsible

Not sure if Qaim Ali Shah is capable of doing any thing different this time over after miserably failing in the last five years in Sind and Karachi. This decision can only harm PPP's cause to come back. Performance in Sind is going to be the only criteria for them to succeed in next elections. They were better off choosing a new dynamic leadership or does Mr. Zardari intends to sink the ship for good !!!
