Kamran Khan Tessori

Right from the outset, Kamran Khan Tessori looked quite an unusual presence in the otherwise unconventional line-up of political personages in fringe political groups. Keeping this in view his presence caused a schism within the ranks of MQM should not be surprising but the real cause for astonishment should be his elevation to the office of the governor of Sindh. Throughout his political career, he has been surrounded by controversies but one has to admit that he is indeed a man of nerves to overcome all odds and come out a winner.

After Eshratul Ebad one should not take the office of governor Sindh as a sinecure and Kamran Khan Tessori is certainly not as toothless as anyone presumed sitting in the chair of the governor. He is fully capable of throwing anyone under the bus as he has done quite regularly and his latest benefactor-turned-victim was Dr. Farooq Sattar whom he ditched only last month. Tessori, a gold trader, struck gold when he joined the Musharraf bandwagon during the PMLF administration and never looked back. An enigmatic figure he quickly shifted sides whenever suited his political interests and always succeeded in his maneuvers. The Weekender
