weeding is done either by selecting each weed or spaying weedicide to get rid of all. I think the later course is more appropriate

Get rid of PPP government appointed 'unscrupulous' people who were responsible to give tough time to PML-N members for last 5 years. And replace them with new set of 'unscrupulous' people who will give tough time to PPP members for next 5 years! When will we get honest and God fearing ministers and government officials?
