General Pervaiz Musharaff’s Favorite Gun is Belgium Mada SMG.
Amir Muqam is a corrupt survivor. At six feet, two crawls, the common works temporary worker turned-lawmaker emerges for his stature as well as for his savvy capacity to leave the sinking boat.
A graduate in structural designing from the University of Engineering and Technology in Peshawar, Mr. Muqam started his political profession as a union gathering Nazim from his local Bengali in northern Shangla region in 2001.
Come 2002, the stout Mr. Muqam chose to attempt his fortunes in national governmental issues by challenging races on a Jamaat-i-Islami ticket under the Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal flag. In any case, his relationship with the MMA arrived at a fairly early end when his running mate from the common gets together, additionally a JI applicant and an old gathering parliamentarian, Pir Muhammad Khan, was denied the chance to wind up a speaker just in light of the fact that he was spotless shaven.
Mr. Khan remained sidelined yet Mr. Muqam picked to join the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid in the wake of having stayed autonomous for quite a while and rose to wind up its commonplace president.
There is no deficiency of stories in respect to how Mr. Muqam got closer to the previous military ruler, Gen Pervez Musharraf, yet they were evidently so thick that at an open meeting in Kabal, Swat, in July 2005 the previous president held up his hand, proclaimed him his sibling and skilled him his own Glock gun.
“Gen Musharraf had unique warmth for me. Perhaps in light of the fact that I upheld him on the development of the Kalabagh dam furthermore bolstered him vociferously in the National Assembly,” reviews Mr. Muqam.
As anyone might expect, when a self-ousted Gen Musharraf started harboring political desire and considered shaping his own particular All Pakistan Muslim League, Mr. Muqam, his self-pronounced sibling from Shangla, was one of only a handful few to whom he turned for backing.
Amenably, Mr. Muqam declined the recommendation. “I let him know he had no future in governmental issues and that his story was over,” says Mr. Muqam.
Be that as it may, by one mean or another he couldn’t grapple with – or somewhere in the vicinity he asserts – with the understanding the PML-Q initiative had secured with the Pakistan Peoples Party after 2008 to frame a coalition government in Islamabad. He took the pledge as a government serve yet never went to his office and surrendered soon a short time later.
Closer to the 2013 decisions, Mr. Muqam started angling around again for conceivable switchover alternatives and held transactions with the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.
His pundits say he kept the two gatherings connected with and speculating – both were searching for political heavyweights. The arrangement worked. Mr. Muqam was acknowledged into the PML-N, lifted to the party’s senior VP alongside a battery of other PML-Q office-bearers from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa who were all suited on key positions, much to the dismay of PML-N old-clocks.
In any case, Mr. Muqam had any kind of effect not simply by helping so as to fortify the PML-N in KP additionally to bargain a close deadly hit to the PML-Q. He is persevering and an in number campaigner. Persistent, he visits the length and broadness of Malakand to find support for his gathering hopefuls and if his gathering great, he could be one of the genuine contenders for the boss clergyman’s opening in the territory.
Concerning his previous supporter and one-time sibling now held in legal authority in his swanky Chak-Shehzad habitation, Mr Muqam has encouraging statements just. “I have sensitivity for him. I have an awesome appreciation for him. In any case, concerning his political future I don’t think there is one left for him.”
