PPP workers block Kala Pul following clash with Bhai Log

I’ve been thinking of writing a post on the tenuous nature of a PPP MQM alliance considering not only their history but also the recent incidents of pre-election and post-election violence.

That will have to wait. My cousin’s just called, telling me to give Kala Pul a miss on my way home. Party workers of PPP and MQM have clashed in that area; PPP workers have taken to the streets and are now pelting cars.

My cousin’s stuck in traffic and is attempting to find a way to Cantt. I’m leaving so this info will have to do. I’ll probably take Clifton Bridge – the American Consulate has its advantages, added security for us mere citizens of this land.
