PTI-PML-N mudslinging

Published Aug 16, 2012 02:37am

IT seems lady luck is once again with President Asif Zardari whose main political opponents seem to be too obsessed with criticising each other. They are oblivious of the problems that this nation is suffering.

Our political leaders consider themselves a gift to mankind by God. What they have forgotten is that it is because of Pakistan they have got fame, power and wealth. They should ask themselves what they have done for this country. How could the PML (N) and the PTI’s mudslinging against each other be beneficial to the country?

Will this useless battle of words resolve issues of power shortages, inflation, economic meltdown, targeted killings, missing people, terrorism, and the collapse of railway, PIA, NICL, OGDC, Pakistan Steel Mills and other state enterprises? The priority of Imran Khan and Chaudhry Nisar seems to be their own personal egos, not the fate of this country and its people.

Why has Pakistan not progressed until today (65th anniversary? blame game - mudslinging - corruptions - favouritism - hyprocricy - islamisation - targeting minorities and the list goes on.

Small minds dicuss people, average minds discuss events, great minds discuss ideas. Do I need to say more? None of the parties to my knowledge have articulated in writing an economic policy, security policy, or education, healthcare, energy, science and technology, and industrial production policies.

the tragedy is that each successive government kept doing the country more & more harm.. zaia-ul-haq left us the legacy of the religious fanatics & opened the doors to the islamic militants. today we have mr 10% (by now mr 100%) totally in charge. where the country is finally headed , i feel scared to even think about.

Imran Khan has too much of ego and does not have the patience of a democratic leader to withstand criticism. He has nothing except words, which is what the PPP, PML(Q), PML(N), MQM, ANP, JUI(F) etc and has nothing concrete to offer

Sorry to say but the author should place the blame where it belongs. Had it not been for blatant accusations against a prestigious non-profit project, things won't have gotten this far. Secondly, the questions raised by PTI against PMLN leadership are valid. If public funds have been misused, we should demand accountability from the parties responsible rather than sweep it under the rug because it will benefit Zardari.

PTI has already given its detailed energy policy and governance devolution policy. Economic policy is due on 24th August. Law and Order policy, Industrial development policy, and Education policy are in the pipeline and would be released in subsequent months before the election. Let's give credit where it is due!

Vote for Imran is vote for Zardari. His only politics to oppose PMLN. Zardari is supporting Imran in this game.
