Maryam Nawaz & political dynasties

THE entire nation should be head over heels in love with the PML-N to read the golden words of Maryam Nawaz that her party, the Nawaz League, is against dynastic politics.

The nation has been doing the same with expectation of different results for the past six decades. Who else would have been a better bearer of this wonderful news than one of the heirs of the Sharif dynasty?

Furthermore, to ensure that the people in this country could care less about issues and matter, Maryam Nawaz stated further that her joining the politics has cleared the misperception that the PML-N was against participation of women in politics.

As if that were not enough, Nawaz Sharif himself in response to a question from a journalist regarding empowerment of women first said what he suggested and then went on to rant the PML-N would ensure supply of gas to all so that women could diligently fulfil their duty to prepare meals for their husband and children.

Way to go PML-N! You truly are what we deserve for being one of the most illiterate countries in the world!

Rallies: a nuisance

RALLIES of political parties these days are creating problems for the public. These are not organised and there is no proper guidance from leaders to the people attending them.

Roads are closed without any intimation and permission from the authorities concerned.

Recently, I faced the worst situation in my life. The main roundabout of Sukkur city, near Ayub Gate, was closed for a public gathering. Almost 500 metres of the road was closed, causing great problems to the people.

Are they allowed to do so? Will they serve us after creating such a nuisance for us? We should not blindly follow these people who don’t even give way to senior citizens and, sometimes, ambulances.
