When the popular become unpopular... By Hashim
11 October, 2013
Indeed, there was an air of jubilation among the people of Pakistan, in particular, among the PML-N's supporters when they won the elections and their party formed the government at the centre. However, nothing has been done to lessen the miseries of the masses. Nothing has been done to lift the bane of inflation, lawlessness and the energy crisis. Within a few months, the once popular political leadership has become unpopular. What type of governance and future lie ahead for the people of Pakistan? Our country is navigating through dangerous waters currently, but the question is of leadership. What is our leadership doing for us? Being a student of law and political science, I believe that this type of intellectually poor leadership has never surfaced in the history of Pakistan.
Our rulers must keep it in their minds that Pakistani society is at a crucial turning point and time is of the essence. Instead of focusing on party gains, now is the time to take measures, which will make governance capable of producing results. It is what the destitute and deprived people of Pakistan want. I appeal to the rulers to pay attention to the poor people of Pakistan by addressing their genuine problems such as deadly inflation, lawlessness, extreme poverty and overpopulation. They must avert the social mayhem and disruption that lies ahead.
