Pakistan is being killed by the dirty internal politics that has a motive to select and elect with a motive of ruling for a long-term. Pakistan really needs revolutionary reforms in 1. Agriculture 2. Water & Power 3. Industries in sectors in fields that are direly needed (prioritized) for development and will create jobs for the young and skilled generation. 4. Communications & Transportation infrastructure. 5. Environmental Remediation. These are few sectors amongs many others that need immediate attention for investment and development.
