Invitation to Trouble

Like it or not, Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif is the country’s only leading surviving politician who has got a national standing and a pure stature of true politician and his ineligibility is not only a blow to the PML(N) and its political future, but also has deep implications for the democracy in the country, which is tied up strongly and very tightly with the future of the country.

Asif Ali Zardari, the civilian dictator of Pakistan has acted upon his whims and his ghosts of fears and have conspired with the fake judiciary of Pervez Musharraf to get rid of the Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shahbaz Sharif. That also makes the PML(N) government of Punjab a thing of past and the most disliked person Salman Taseer has now got the hot seat and the Punjab smoulders with anger and anguish.

From the matter of General Pervez Musharraf’s supposed impeachment to the restoration of Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary, Asif Ali Zardari has lied and lied again. He has deceived not only Nawaz Sharif but has also played havoc with the interests of the country and its people.

He may have some glee out of this whole troubled fiasco, but that is short-lived for sure.

  1. FIVE REGIONAL CITIES OF PAKISTAN should be upgraded with in the provinces in the country. Regional cities of Dera Ismail Khan in NWFP, Gawadar/ Qalat in Balouchistan, Sukkar/ Larkana in Upper Sind, Jehlam/ Rawalpindi and Multan in Punjab province. These regional cities have been ignored by the federal and provincial governments although these cities have their own history, culture and languages.Dera Ismail Khan in south of Pakhtun khwa/MWFP is under seige, Multan/DG Khan in south of Punjab is next target of religious extremists,Sukkar/ Larkana is being rule by criminals, Gawadar/ Qalat is trouble some. The people of these regions have to travel to provincial capitals for every small issue and requirement of the daily life which should be provided in nearby cities. A good number of population travel to big cities for their survival to earn livelihood as the local feudal own majority land and keep the common man as their slaves. Creation of regional government and upgrading of the regional cities will save a lot of money and time of the poor people of these regions. Circuit benches of the High Courts are already working in these areas and only requirement is the additional staff of different departments involved in additional work at the provincial capitals. The concern authorities should immediately consider to upgrade the regional cities. And immediate attention should be given upgrade/build the airports,TV station, civic center, libraries,hospitals, educational institutes and investment opportunities for Pakistanis living abroad and foreign firms to create jobs in the area as majority population in rural Pakistan do not have enough resources to survive. It’s remind me the condition of pre Islamic revolution of Iran in Shah time when the rural Iran was ignored and the capital Tehran was developed in a way to call it Paris of Middle East with modern life style. Couple of other big cities like Isfahan and Caspian sea was taken care of because of foreign tourists but rural area was ruled by cruel police and intelligence. Then what happen rural population supported the Islamic revolution and moved to Tehran and other big cities later on. The new government after revolution developed, built and upgraded the rural areas of Iran accordingly. A fund to upgrade/build these regional cities in Pakistan should be established by public and private sector and Pakistani government, our foreign friends and Pakistanis living abroad may be asked to participate in this development mission in the country..KHWAJA AFTAB ALI,( former secretary, Iranian embassy, Saudi Arabia,1979-88) Advocate High Court & I.P.
