Everywhere on the Pakistani TV channels (read: News Channels since the only channels snatching ratings are news channels only and there no proper entertainment, science, kids specific channels operate here) and going frenzy over the defeat of PTI. PTI lost in punjab, PTI lost in Karachi and PTI lost here abd PTI lost there. It seems that there is a competition going on between Waseem Badamis and Tallat Hussains and Saleem Safis of our ‘news’ channels as to who can prove ‘better’ that PTI is just another political party of status quo. The new addition is Dr. (?) Amir Liaquat Hussain who is on the channels to crack corny jokes on the defeat of PTI in Karachi.

The local body elections were supposed to be a serious business of the state insofar as democracy is concerned but to much dismay the so called anchors have made it a joke. While hosting a show at ARY News, sometimes Amir Liaquat Hussain was seen making fun of Imran Khan and sometimes PTI partisans were termed as burgers and whole lot of anchors was laughing like kids whereas PTI representative Miss Naz Baloch was like lone warrior in between a patriarchal gathering!

Enough with prologue! The point I want to make here is that none of the so called anchors and intelligentsia raised the questions like,as to why the people, again went to elect those scoundrels:

  1.  Under whose rule they had seen Karachi transforming from city of lights to a city of garbage, filth and trash on roads.
  2. Under whose governments there was and is target killing sky rocketing.
  3. Whose governments facilitated the corruption to flourish.
  4. Who became proprietors of land and water Mafia.
  5. Who made the city a free for all city.
  6. Who made the rule of law a joke. You can kill someone and get away with it easily and it remains just another day for the state.
  7. Who didn’t allow mass transit projects t be executed in the largest city of Pakistan.

Yes, this was a victory day for PPPP and MQM! People are happy and anchors are happy that PTI has lost! It isn’t not PTI who has lost, it is the fate of Karachi who has lost. These anchors and media people don’t know what crime they are committing by instilling misoneism in the hearts of common Pakistani who has been deprived of its basic human rights like food, education, transport, and health and yet again by constant propaganda against PTI they have succeeded in proving that PTI is just another party. Since it was impossible for them to prove that PTI was better than other parties they thought it easy to prove this party like any other party and in this scenario they coerced this party to commit blunders as well.

Well congratulations Pakistan and Pakistani media’s Waseem Badamis you have succeeded by defeating the hope.

We are already 100 years behind the civilised world! Let it be 100 more years! Langras and Paharis and Saulat Mirzas in Karachi and Bhuttos and Zardars in Sind and sharifs in Punjab are there to rule you for the next 100 more years where

  1. Ishaq Dar will ensure that FDI becomes all time low or infitissimal and based on loans from IMF he will announce that foreign reserves have been increased
  2. Nawaz Sharif will ensure that show case projects like some flyovers and concrete and mortar and steel is up there to fool the nation and hospitals kids will keep on dying due to lack of food
  3. Bhuttos and Zardaris will ensure that interior Sind remains as backward as Stone Age
  4. Karachi will keep on witnessing first filth and grab age along with as old and poor transport infrastructure as that of sixteenth century!

Hail the Pakistani media and Pakistani nation you succeeded in your agenda!

Faisalabad – December 8, 2014. PTI had announced to exercise its democratic right of protest by giving a “shutter down”. Punjab administration had started to manage things proactively and additional measures to keep law and order in place were being taken. For example; water cannons were brought from Sindh. I reckon that Punjab police had its CID or other sensitive department’s personnel deployed as well. I also fancy that some intelligence agencies under home department, or otherwise, would have their officials deployed, acting surreptitiously to capture anyone who tries to sabotage the law and (or) report the exact situation to Head Quarters.

Regardless of my optimistic imagination regarding Punjab Police’s safety and security measures there is something evident that numerous policemen were deployed in Faisalabad on That day.  The pictures and footages which aired on electronic media and published on print media, show serried rows of police in the background of persons with guns in their hands with clear intentions.  The faces of those coward ruffians are as clear as day light, holding pistols and sticks, courtesy presence of media at the spot.

Now after the fateful incident of Faisalabad, where one partisan of PTI was killed, my question is; why is it so hard for our police to capture the culprit and bring him to justice which is prerogative of citizens of Pakistan under the law and constitution. First failure was when police didn’t intervene during the affray between PMLN and PTI workers. It seems those people with weapons in their hands killing PTI worker were under auspices of police because it failed to stop the firing which resulted in the death of an innocent civilian. Now second failure is the dilatory strategy of police in capturing the culprits and producing them in front of court.

Police just cannot absolve itself in this fiasco to keep law and order and just rely on the efficacy of NADRA to advise the whereabouts of persons involved in crime? Is our Punjab police that incompetent that it cannot identify the persons involved in crime when officials were present at the spot? I am layman but even I can tell, if police has the will, it can resolve the murder case of Haq Nawaz only from information by cops present at the crime scene and reports from intelligence agencies as I hope that, their job is not limited to only advise the number of people present at a certain Jalsa, to media. One can, rightly, argue regarding possibility of political pressure on administration. Even, if someone is pressurizing the law enforcement agencies, then whose job is to rebuke? Or Punjab police has found an easy way out to get itself subjugated by despotism of law makers? If so, then on which wall should I throw the law, constitution, hope and ethical values? Is Jinnah’s advise to bureaucrats with tenor to keep themselves aloof from politics was only meant to be promulgated in official papers, written in bold in text books and then make fun of it by acting like personal servants of some political party ? If so then, no wonder,  this pandemonium in Pakistan will continue for next century also. Where constitution is flouted and law enforcement become a party, even the last ray of hope turns bleak.

A few days ago, an American school teacher was killed in Abu Dhabi in a shopping mall. The assassin was identified as a ‘burqa’ clad individual. Police didn’t even know the gender of the killer at that moment but the mystery was solved and culprit was captured within 48 hours of the incident. This only achievement of Abu Dhabi police is enough to put Punjab Police’s name in hall of shame when I compare it with the Faisalabad incident where the police was present and media showed the face of alleged killer as well, yet he was able to flee the crime scene and still remains at large.

There are only two scenarios. Either Punjab police is incompetent or is a party to crime. There is no excuse in presence of hundreds of cops and media to not to capture the culprit. I don’t blame any political party because this is what the politics of subcontinent is. Need of the hour is stand against tyranny and not to become part of it.

PTI claims that PMLN worker(s) killed its partisan, Haq Nawaz. I refute. He was not killed by any party’s worker but he is killed and his family members are being and shall be psychologically killed by politicized police of Punjab in a display of contemptible cowardice and incompetence.

injusticeThe more you read the history of Muslims of India and their political struggle; you realize that Muslims of subcontinent, I would talk specifically about Pakistan, are still at the same stage where Muslims of India had started their political journey for the betterment of a minority called Mohammendens in British India.

 

Here is an excerpt from the Presidential Address of Syed Ali Imam to the All India Muslim League’s second session held in Amritsar on 30-31 Dec 1908. In the section I would quote, Syed Ali Imam goes on to expound as to how Muslims League’s agenda is different from that of Congress and why lots of Mulsims had remained aloof from joining this party, but I would stop only to that section where League’s leader enumerates the major problems faced by then society as whole and especially Muslims.

 

Let’s read it and see where we stand today as those problems are still existing in Pakistan and Muslims have not gotten rid of this one tithe.

 

“The separation of judiciary from the executive, the repeal of degrading Colonial Ordinances, the extension of primary education, the adoption of measures of sanitation, the admission of Indians of all races in large numbers into the higher branches of the public service, discontinuance of official interference in matters of local self-government, reasonable reduction of military expenditure without endangering efficiency, recognition of the legitimate and patriotic desire of the warlike races of India to render military service as volunteers, the grant of commissions in army to Indians, equitable adjustment of Home Charges, limitation of revenue on land belonging to the State, establishment and development of village unions for the disposal of petty civil and criminal cases, encouragement and protection of indigenous arts and industries, the eradication of insolence, on one hand, and feeling of inferiority and mortification on the other, between the rulers and the ruled, are some of many grave questions of practical politics in India that equally effect all classes of our countrymen. …”

 

It is really disappointing that the problems we faced a hundred years back are still there even after we won an independent state of our own.

 

The tunnel vision of our current and previous leadership has utterly failed to overcome a single problem as cited above by a Muslim Leagues leader a hundred years back.

 

  1. Still judiciary is not separated from the executive and has worked and still working under the behest of civil and military dictators and rulers. The only thing our judicial has produced is red tape culture and doctrine of necessity. Dictators have been legalized and politically motivated verdicts have been given. Fingers are being raised on the legitimacy of the current judicial system of Pakistan in the wake of rigging in recent election of May 2013 and judiciary’s involvement therein.
  2. The hollow leadership has not been able to install proper self-government and they are still running away from it. For the past, almost one decade now (from 2008) Pakistan is without any proper self-government system.
  3. Primary education could not be extended in the past six decades the way it was supposed to and it has made Pakistan one of those countries with highest number of kids of school going age away from primary education.
  4. Minorities cannot even think of joining the higher posts in civil and military institutions.
  5. Military expenditure in Pakistan is sky high and still the country is most vulnerable of any terrorist attack at any bazar, market, public place and high sensitive areas.
  6. Land reforms in Pakistan seem a far cry now and issue from which India got rid just after independence.
  7. Village unions and reforms to resolve the petty criminal cases at local level is still not in place. It is a habit of Pakistan’s current and previous leadership to nominate the SHO of their own choice in the village whose duty is merely to protect the interests of the local MNAs and MPAs.
  8. Protection of indigenous arts and crafts is still a dream and remains of that are also being destroyed. Yes, for the photo session of the hollow leadership they do organize the fake festivals at the ruins of great ancient civilization of Mohenjo-Daro, sing songs, dance, eat and then vanish leaving behind the crying, moribund and hand-to-mouth poor artists. All this stage show is done by the public’s exchequer for the glory of personal who want-to-be leaders of this dilapidated society whose majority lives under huge stress to make both ends meet, living under 2 dollars a day.
  9. The public still faces insolation and mortification on daily basis just to quench the thirst of the ego and power of politicians who come to power just by rigging. This happens sometime by closing the public roads, sometimes we see this happening when people are made to stand in long queues to get rashan. Sometimes this happens when a tribal man is deprived of its basic rights under the name of FCR, even after British left the subcontinent. Sometimes when a deserving candidate cannot get the post because of nepotism.

 

List goes on but it is evident like a sun in the sunny day that our whole leadership in the past and present has been failed miserably to provide to this country, even basic needs for which a common man is crying for the last century. On the roads, it is not traffic but chaos. In the offices the corruption is breaking all time high records. Who was supposed to even teach the public how to behave, who was supposed to provide the citizens a civic sense? This was the job of political leadership but instead of making this country a better place of living, it has been made Gahanna, people are going more and more into privation and society is moribund. We, our leadership, our politicians and bureaucracy has flouted the tenor of those resolutions and charters on which the existence of Pakistan was predicated.

 

All so called elections and reforms we have seen have only made Pakistan desolated and dilapidated.

 

We are for sure living in an era of 1908 insofar as the problems faced by a common man are concerned.

 

 

 

 

There a pandemonium in Pakistan over non-existence (or existence) of Mr. Jinnah’s speech, in the print media. The group who is denying the existence of utterance of such words as to allow minorities the full freedom, choosing English as an official language and which expounded the nationalism, has its ulterior motives and a particular ideology, viz., Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was a chosen person by Devine Authorities and was a votary and he never wanted any political system other than the divine one.

Below is the exact news as it appeared in the Daily Times (England) on 12th August 1947 insofar Mr. Jinnah’s speech of first constituent assembly is concerned. I will put the statements regarding rights of the minorities, political system and official language in bold.  Readers can draw the inference from the below self explanatory piece from History.

THE PAKISTAN ASSEMBLY

MR. JINNAE ELECTED PRESIDENT

CALL FOR TOLERANCE

From Our Special Correspondent

KARACHI, AUG. 11

An interesting precedent in British constitutional history was set this morning when Mr. Jinnah, President of the Muslim League and Governor-General designate of the Dominion of Pakistan, was also elected President of the Pakistan Constituent Assembly. His election is yet another indication of his unchallenged supremacy in Indian Muslim politics, and was referred to by his proposer, Mr. Liaquat Ali Khan, who said that the creation of the State of Pakistan was mainly if not wholly due to him. In his opening speech, Mr. Jinnah, talking quietly and unemotionally like a lawyer arguing a case, declared that the two functions of the Assembly were to frame the Constitution and to act as a temporary federal legislature. “Not only we ourselves,” he said,” but the whole world is wondering how this unprecedented cyclonic revolution which has established two new Dominions in the sub-continent of India has been carried through peacefully and without violence.”

LAW AND ORDER

The first duty of the Government, he added, was to maintain law and order so that life, property, and religious beliefs were fully protected by the State. He then proceeded to inveigh against bribery and corruption, nepotism and jobbery and black marketing. With regard to the division of India he said that there were many people in Pakistan and India who did not agree with it, but he himself was convinced that it was the only solution to India’s constitutional problem. “any other solution would have led us to disaster.” Appealing for tolerance and unity, Mr. Jinnah said that the biggest hindrances to India’s advance had been religious and racial divisions. But for these India would have been free long ago. People living in Pakistan, he said, would have complete religious freedom but they must remember ” first, second, and last that they are citizens of this State with equal rights and equal obligations.” He then referred to the differences which formerly existed in England between Protestants and Roman Catholics, and said that Pakistan must try to achieve the same goal as England, where religious and political spheres are kept separate”. “We must try to keep that as our ideal” .

PAKISTAN FLAG

Mr. Liaquat Ali Khan then proposed the adoption, as the Pakistan flag, of a dark green flag with a white vertical bar at the mast, the green portion bearing a white crescent in the centre and a five-pointed white heraldic star. Representatives of the Hindu minorities asked that more time should be devoted to the choosing of the flag, and that the minorities should be more closely associated with it. They were, however, overruled, and the proposal was carried. To a Hindu member who pointed out that the green portion was the same as the Muslim League flag, Mr. Liaquat Ali Khan retorted that the new Indian flag was substantially the same as the Congress flag, and that the white portion of the Pakistan flag, one fourth of the total area, symbolized Pakistan’s minorities, roughly one-fourth of the total population. The somewhat aggressive behavior of these Hindus suggested that they are going to be by no means docile members of the Assembly. One of them wanted to speak in Hindustani, but was politely told by Mr. Jinnah that the language of the Assembly was English, unless a member could not express himself in English- when the vernacular was permitted. The member then put his question in excellent English. Congratulatory messages were read from the American and Australian Governments. One of the pleasant features of the Pakistan Constituent Assembly is that the chamber, tastefully paneled in Indian woods, is small, the number of members is limited (69), and the proceedings take place in an informal and almost intimate atmosphere. The smallness of the chamber discourages oratory, and the only fiery address delivered so far came from Begum Shah Nawaz, one of the two women members.

11 August 1947

11 August 1947

11 Aug 3 11 Aug 4 11 August 1

I am a columnist, a new rising columnist. From my education and what I do for my livelihood, I don’t qualify – really – to be a writer in the leading newspaper of Pakistan but yet again, I write. Basically I am a government officer and have a sense of security in my mind for my job, pension and other benefits for my family. My father was also a writer.

I didn’t really want to write columns ever but as the time passed, I developed this hobby. When I wrote for the first time I was a little bit scared if it ever shall get approved or published but I had full support of my father who also wrote in the same newspaper and had many contacts there. It was published. Now I use writing as a part time job.

My earlier writings comprise of short stories, some copied/pasted stuff and whatever I felt like writing. Meanwhile I got one of my books also published which comprise of my all the written columns. My father arranged a big party for this and invited the renowned journalist in order to give more publicity to my works.

At the moment I have become a reality. People know me by my name. Previously I used to get one column published in the daily per week but now I have increased the number and I post at least two columns a week. For public’s general knowledge (people say that I should tell my business secret to others but since I see it happening everywhere, I don’t see any harm in it), I herewith, mention some of the tips which would do the trick and their work shall also get sold and they would become popular overnight, provided their father is also a famous or notorious journalist.

1.       Writing against any popular leader:

This is very popular now days in Pakistan. If someone wants to become in lime light over night just start writing against any popular leader of your region. First of all the group of the people who are really against that person shall contact you and there is a high possibility that you can get a contract as well. Our people like to know more about anomalies about others. About others’ religious belief, their social circle and whereabouts. So when you start to write against him, just a little ‘Google’ on his life would do the job. If you are unable to find anything concrete you may just mention you own wish list as news from ‘reliable sources’ and that as per my knowledge the leader is losing popularity because that politician and (or) manager has left him etc. You will see and overnight increase in your readers list.

The famous leader shall not be able to do anything against you due to many factors, some which include; (a) he wants to keep himself clean as long as attacking his opponents is concerned, (b) the popular leader is for the right of the speech, (c) he is busy in other more important issues than to give importance to a columnist, (d) local laws, (e) you have  a famous father and anything against you can lead to a catastrophe for his career as far as media is concerned, etcetera.

Writing against any popular leader also involves, writing in favor of your favorite leader.

2.       Writing on social issues

Second most popular tip is to write on social issues like dowry, women rights, education, poverty, unemployment, society’s collective behaviour towards any issue etc. In your personal life you may be a gangster and in your own home you might be a dictator, but it would really work when you right against both. People would understand that you the only unbiased writer and NGOs shall sure contact you in person. This will also develop a sense your truthfulness in the readers mind and people shall follow you blindly to generate an opinion. While writing on such issues make sure condemn generic religious beliefs of public shall give more charm to this and it is quite possible that you might be nominated for some international award as well.

3.        Keep the readers guessing

When you feel short of ideas or issues then the most common idea is to write short stories in abstract way. For example you can mention a jungle where all the animals lives together under one king, lion. Then one fine morning another animal, say, a bear – announces that he wants to become king due to such and such reasons and have support of so many animals. Then mention some fight scenes in your story and at end indicate that, then there was a chaos. And let the people guess. Every reader shall guess the result on his own and consider you someone out of the world who has in very simple way conveyed his point of view. If you tilt the story in such a way, between the lines, that people consider hero of your story that person who you like the most would really work to turn the people’s thoughts towards toward your favourite celebrity, leader etcetera.

journalist

4.       Give statistics

You don’t need to be a mathematician, economist, engineer of defence graduate to opine on any of the special subjects. For example if you want to write on economy of Pakistan you can just mention the down trodden situation of some road hawker in your whole column and in last paragraph you may mention the copied stuff from some website of indicators and that’s it. People shall love it as they have instinct to know the stories of others, especially pitiful stories. Similarly, if you plan to write regarding new inventions, just watch discovery channel for couple of days, grab a little bit information and in your next column start with pointing out the poor scientific research in your country by giving Google or Wikipedia statistics of number of user of that particular gadget etc and at the end mention your own philosophical thoughts as if that invention could also be used to destroy humanity etc. A common man would really buy that stuff and quote you in his conversations. Readers must take impression that you regularly go through all the famous magazines viz., Time to The Economist and Readers Digest till National Geographic.

 5.       Often write on Current Affairs

If you just keep on writing regarding a political leader (see point 1 above) people would start speculating you as a ‘lifafa’ journalist. In this scenario make sure that you write on current affairs as well most often. Pakistan is a happening country. Everyday there is a new story about political turmoil, law and order situation, rape cases, missing persons and sometimes issue regarding politicians’ personal affairs. In you columns you have to make sure that readers take the impression that you watch news daily and read at least 5 newspapers. This is another thing if your home minister never lets you switch the channel from Hum TV.

6.       Elaborate yourself

Another trick to become famous, as a column writer in the Pakistan, is that you must elaborate yourself. Your childhood memories, your behaviour towards other (or which you think it should be but it is not is also acceptable), your family background or your habits should be put in such a way that common readers see you around yourself in their daily life.  For example if you have studied in Urdu medium, your columns must reflect this more often. Another example; if you think you worked so hard but didn’t achieve what should have; mention it clearly in almost every column about it, between the lines. Always justify your affiliations as rightful things.

7.       Always Respond

If you write something and someone responds to it in the contrary. Even if you think that other person is right then instead of accepting it as your mistake. Always respond in an aggressive manner. If you won’t respond people would think that you are not well informed and this can take your market down.

Disclaimer: The above show a generic behaviour of new writers as observed by me and is not specific to any person and (or) group. Any resemblance shall only be by chance.  

We Pakistanis are no doubt living in an illusion world in every walk of the life. We have our own perceptions of everything and we stick to it without any justification. Since child hood we are pushed into the illusions about Pakistan like, castle of Islam, peaceful country, prosperity, cleanliness, honesty, education, hospitality, friendship with china, Pakistan’s role as a sovereign country etc. But when we grow up we see that none of the above ‘key words’ are existing in the society. We are intolerant, we don’t have manners of conversation, we are not aware of the word ‘queue’, we litter on the roads, we park wrongly, we don’t stop at red signal, we loot the public money, in government offices, from peon till president is corrupt, we don’t have education as our priority, we don’t know health reforms, we back stab our colleagues and we are going far away from religion as well. On the international level, we have lost our credibility and Pakistanis are pronounced as terrorists, despite the fact that none of the Pakistanis was involved in 9/11 or major acts of terror. USA can kill our 24 soldiers and not a single word of apology! Even an anchor from CNN gets the courage to interview the PM and say “heyy PM look into my eyes and tell me…”. China, so called, all weather friend, acts like a business man all the times and is always interested only about his profits.

The biggest illusion is created by politicians everyday on political talk shows which start in the early evening and continue till late night. These political yanks not only confuse the nation with distorted facts, they are also a reason for disappointments in the nation. When asked by one of the famous politicians (Mr. Gondal) of the ruling regime about the conviction of the PM, he went on to comparing the PM with Bhagat Singh and Ghazi Ilm Din Shaheed as both were convicted ones yet considered as heroes. This statement left everyone including anchor astonished and surprised, the same way PM Gilani left the CNN anchor astonished. When asked about shifting industry from Pakistan to other countries the statement came from Mr. Gondal’s mouth was comparing the shifting and (or) shifted industry from Europe to other countries. What a confusion! What a chaos! What a shame! Either Mr. Gondal was unaware of industrialization of Europe and history of heroes or he was deliberately confusing the nation. There is a famous saying that when one cannot convince the other one, one still has the liberty to confuse other one. This was what Mr. Gondal doing.

Another type of illusion is by social media. Why I claim so, is because whenever I click my home button on Facebook, half of the page is full of such illusions. Sometimes Nawaz Sharif, Zardari and associates are shown behind the bars, as beggars, being hanged at the cross roads and so on and so forth. on the other hand there is a group who keeps on posting the fallacious facts about Pakistan’s prosperity and wealth. Thar coal reserves are the biggest example of such posts. It seems that we as a nation love to create illusions and confusion and wish our wishful thinking as facts. The question is; does such kind of stuff really make us and how far it is from reality? In fact this kind of un-ethical stuff circulating around the web not only pollutes the creativity but is taking us away from the veracity.

We have been made a confused society overall by our text books, ruling elite since 1947 and now by media. Our policy makers must start redefining the country policy from scratch and admitting the fact we are NOT a sovereign nation by any length. Our trade, our foreign policy, our say in UN, i.e., almost everything is hostage to the nations who dictate.

The only way to come out of this confusion for youth is to face the realities and try to overcome the short comings on individual level and not by just posting distorted fact and non-realistic photos on Facebook.

Advisor: I see that our graph of popularity is going down day by day. People are on the streets vouching for even a dictatorship which could provide them with electricity and gas, a leadership which could control price hike in the petroleum products and lower down the poverty level.

President: these things are there since our party took charge of the government. What’s new in it?

Advisor: sir nothing is new, I just wanted to make a point that this is our last parliamentary year and if this remains the same then for sure our party is going to lose significantly.

President: who are the opponents to whom you are scared and scaring me as well?

Advisor: The biggest opponent is the masses.

President: Noted.

Advisor: (sigh)

President: OK. Let me know what the driving force is, behind the street protest as you know we are doing our level best to meet the state people requirements. We cannot provide subsidy on all the products as our GDP is already pretty low. If we start providing subsidy on each and every product than country will go bankrupt in no time.

Advisor: understood sir, but I have a solution to this which I wanted to discuss with you.

President: you know I have no time for this. You may table your proposal in next cabinet meeting.

Advisor: Will do, but if I am confident that you have agreed upon, I will be confident in doing so.

President: Make it short.

Advisor: Sir, how about

–          widening the tax net

–          imposing the tax on the agriculture

–          Firing all the “political hires” from the institutions and bringing on board the people on merit.

–          Making FBR an independent institution, I know it is already independent but only in papers.

–          The privatization commissioning to be made more and more transparent.

–          Commercial and Technical Bidding of the major projects like oil/gas etc to be transparent.

–          Lowering down the Presidential and PM house expenditures and spending on the education.

–          Start relying on ourselves and start to explore new mineral and oil/gas reserves. No need calling for third party companies to do so. Our country must establish institutions of its own. The expertise can be developed by getting overseas trainings etc.

–          Government must give priority to opening new schools and colleges with a vision that a school  shall be turned into college in and a college into university in maximum 15 to 20 years. Keep the standard of universities and colleges so high, zero tolerance policy on standard of such institutions, so that foreigners can come to our country for education. This in turn shall prove to be big economic asset for country and our party as well. Our party shall be commemorated in history in golden words.

President: are you finished or yet there are other points?

Advisor: Sir I have more.

President: I don’t have time for all this right now. You may table them in next cabinet meeting and I will make sure a working committee is set up to ponder upon your thoughts. Your main concern was party and next elections?

 Advisor: Yes

President: I have another plan for that.

Advisor:  And what’s that?

President: You know that our masses literally crave for foreign teams playing cricket in the country and our masses also want disputed territorial issues to be resolved with neighbouring country. If the load shedding and gas issues are resolved in next three to four months than people shall forget the previous years.

Advisor: I second.

President: to start with, I am going to pay a visit to neighbouring country to ask if they can send their cricket team to our country. Then I plan to do a treaty to buy electricity from neighbouring countries. You will see the things moving in favour of our party as now I am going to take personal care about bashing other parties as well. And yes don’t forget to present your points in the next cabinet’s meeting.

Advisor: Thinking…
