Apropos the news item, ‘Political appointees in police: magnitude surprised PM’ (Sept 12), this is the second time the PM was surprised. The first time he was surprised was at the electricity generation problem.

One would imagine the PM to be more aware of these issues. During his past stints Sindh and Karachi in particular were suffering from this menace already.

A seasoned politician should have been aware of the problems of the country.

How naive of our worthy prime minister. Suddenly he is being surprised by the magnitude of the tasks he is facing. This 'surprise' was all too evidently missing during the election campaign, especially when tall claims were being made.

There would be many surprises for the Prime Minister, only if MNA Shiekh Rashid is allowed to speak in the National Assembly.

@syed naseem: Let somebody replace Nawaz as PM who will not be surprised.

Now, by saying what you said, you have surprised the PM the third time. :)
