Islamabad, June 4 : Names and surnames matter a lot when it comes to treatment extended to the politicians, particularly in the Indian subcontinent. These days "Zardari" appears to be the highest surname in Pakistan's polity.
This was noticed when Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah could not get access to the Chief Minister's Annexe and had to spend the night in one of the general rooms in the main building of Sindh House, because PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardrai's sister Faryal Talpur had already occupied the accommodation meant for the CM.
According to the Dawn, Ali Shah reached Sindh House in Islamabad on Sunday evening to spend the night before attending the National Economic Council meeting the next morning and leave for Karachi.
But, when he turned up at the Chief Minister's Annexe he was told that it was already being occupied by Zardari's sister Faryal Talpur.
Ali Shah, a gentleman and very unassuming, had no option but to settle down in one of the rooms in the main building of Sindh House which Benazir Bhutto had once chosen to stay as prime minister in her first term.
Faryal Talpur was staying in the Chief Minister's Annexe to take oath as newly-elected MNA on Monday. She was elected unopposed in a by-election held in Larkana following the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.
