I think the biggest task for the new-elected PM is to get rid of the Gun-culture prevailing in Pakistan for the last one decade. The hearts, minds and the spiritis of the citizens is to be made free to soar in the skies. The people of Pakistan must be allowed to dream, dream big and fulfill those dreams. And the biggest road-block to this is the Gun-culture. Once this gun-culture is gone, all other things-economy for example--will automatically fall in place.
