POLITICAL parties have presented their manifestos. Some say they will change education policies and bring uniformity, some say they will get rid of corruption in minimum time, some say the Islamic system should be established, etc.

Ironically, it is the same parties, same people, same promises and same public with a new printout of manifestos.

They are promising that they can solve problems in a very short time period, which seems to be a joke.

There are so many conflicts internally. There is also energy crisis, a weak economy, infrastructure, massive corruption, education, health etc.

It would be a miracle to overcome such problems in 90 or 100 days or in a limited time. We should prepare for the worst.

The only big difference is that in the changed political atmosphere the political leaders will have to actually deliver. They cannot get away with it so easily now.

If this letter was posted 5 years ago, i would have believed it. But for this election, political parties have put out detailed manifestos. PTI alone has put out more than 10 policies and is awarding ticket to 80% new faces. For us to say that everything is the same shows that we haven't done our homework.
