Whenever I watch political talk shows and news I come across some crazy terms, “Senior Rehnuma” is written with the name of numerous politicians on TV. Now this is such a colossal lie on the part of the media industry that it’s beyond punishment. Senior Rehnuma is like sucking up to the people who are the foremost “chamcha’s” of the head of political parties.
Recently I came across this wonderful Senior Rehnuma of PTI, His name is Faisal Wadda. Hailing from Karachi Wadda’s designation suggests that he heads the Media and Public Relations team of PTI in Karachi. At least this is what Mr. Waddah tells the Media.
From the first office of PTI in Karachi, which was at Shahraah e Faisal, to the one in Defense to the present Insaf House, to Jirga hall to Palwal house, Mr. Waddah is seen nowhere, he leads an invisible life.
There are people in PTI that gave life, time and blood to the party in Karachi. There was Dawa Khan, Subhan Sahil, Dr. Arif Alvi and Jawad Jilliani, but there was no Faisal Waddah. When the foundations of very vibrant ISF Karachi were being laid, there were Dr. Arif Alvi and Subhan sahil and others mentioned above but there was no Faisal Waddah. When the Media Cell was being made, there was Saif ullah Niazai but there was no Fasial Waddah.
There was drone Dharna, there was protest against Raymond Davis and many other events, but there was no Faisal Waddah.
In the toughest of the times in Karachi, this man named Faisal Waddah is seen nowhere. Not a single party worker or a student from ISF is aware of his contributions to the party. In fact the first time he was seen on TV as a “Rehnuma of PTI” a lot of PTI workers called up to ask who, why and where he is from.
He is invisible to the party on ground, so much so that in most of the visits of Imran khan to Karachi, when IK was not allowed to come even, there was no Faisal waddah.
Then came the toughest time of general elections. When every member of PTI in Karachi was on death threat, Mr Wadda was found saying “bhai MQM say Panga laynay ki kia zaroorat thi”, there is nothing more to say about this man.
So how this man got into the party and why is he being given selective importance. Well the dice rolls on to Imran Ismail.
After contacting many high ups of PTI sindh and Karachi, Faisal Waddah got a chance to mingle with Imran Ismail, through common business friends.
Mr. Faisal Wadda is a poster child of Urban Capitalism, why would he support change. He used the money which was in actual written off loans taken in Musharraf’s era by his family. He spent that money on Imran Ismail. He provided him cars and places, he provided him with opportunities for investment in his business. So Imran Ismail pushed him forward. Imran khan trusted Imran Ismail and slowly but gradually, Faisal Waddah’s resources started serving Imran Khan directly. Before Waddah, Imran khan use to stay at the house of Naeem ul haq or Engineer Najeeb harron, but it was Imran Ismail, who pushed IK towards MR. Waddah, the only reason was, Mr Waddah was giving business to Imran ismail. So much so that finally Imran Ismail became business partner of Faisal Waddah in his construction corporation. Today they have a combined office at the expensive locality of Bath Island and Faisal Waddah becomes the face of PTI on TV.
Imran Ismail, if you are reading this you should know that great people like engineer Najeeb Haroon and Naeem Ul haq walked away because you replaced them with this useless corrupt capitalist name Faisal Waddah. By the way, Faisal Waddah is more into MQM then PTI, investigate if you want to.
The real shocker was, after talking to my friends in media, I found out that Mr. Faisal Waddah, introduces himself as
“The head of Media Management and Public Relations Karachi”
Secondly he maintains “The credit for the Establishment and Activities of PTI Karachi”, though the fact is that PTI Karachi doesn’t know this man at all.
I think media should also investigate before presenting opportunist like Faisal Waddah as “Rehnuma of PTI”.
As for PTI, either ask this man to work for the party, or hire his services for Imran khan and imran ismail in person, but please, we know PTI inside out, rejecting Najeeb haroon, Naeem ul haq, Subhan Sahil, Jawad jillani and many dedicated workers and presenting Faisal Waddah as PTI Karachi Leader is not only a joke, but blasphemy.
If this man is not dealt with on war footings, then this would become yet another win for orthodox capitalistic politics of Pakistan and another loss for ideology.
