Bleak picture

All Pakistani shareholders of major institutions are claiming that the country’s economy is lingering under several external quagmires that need to be handled properly. The right time to revamp economic policies is now, otherwise, the old system will generate even more drawbacks. Lawmakers and policymakers must take better initiatives to strengthen the economy.

For the people

The majority of politicians in our country do not know about the problems being faced by the common man. These politicians always keep their interests above national interest. It seems that they do not know the true meaning of democracy. Politicians are elected by the people. It is the responsibility of elected representatives to work for the people. In our country, there is a wide gap between politicians and the common man. The ruling elite cannot understand the pain and anguish faced by the people. They do not know what it is like to spend hours without power. They do not know how hard it is to walk miles to fetch water. There is no participation of the people in decision making. The role of the people has been reduced to casting votes and to participate in rallies and public meetings. No law has been passed for the welfare of the people. With each passing day, living in the country is becoming more difficult for the people. When will our politicians pay attention to the plight of the common man?

Crimes in Mochh

The increase in the number of crimes in Mochh is alarming. In the past few months, several incidents of murder have taken place in the district. The area is rife with tribal conflicts and internal rivalries which results in the gruesome murder of young individuals. It is the responsibility of the law-enforcement agencies to come up with a strategy to provide relief to the grief-stricken inhabitants. The district reconciliatory committees must act proactively and weed out the minor differences among rival groups. The police should take strict action against those people who have taken the law in their own hands. To educate people about the importance of tolerance and peace, peace rallies and conventions must be held. Also, the intellectuals and scholars of the area must come forward and play their role to deal with the situation. Muhammad Fayyaz (Mianwali) Click for detailed story
