It seems that elections are likely to be held in Pakistan at the end of this year or at the start of next year. Elections in the motherland come and go. Sometimes they come early and sometimes they came late, but they have got a habit to come after all.
I have seen some five or six elections in my life. In all those elections, I have observed that same faces are elected, no matter who forms the government. Current faces are also relative to each other. One relative is in the ruling party, and one is in the opposition. Behind the scene they all are same.
You don’t see these birds after the elections. They only migrate to their areas, when elections draw near. They become very sweet, mellifluous and generous, when the election season comes but they shed their artificial skin once they get the votes.
Why not have a change this time? Why not elect some new faces? Why not just eradicate these seasoned politicians? Why not do a favour to the homeland by not electing these Chaudhris, Khans, Tawans, Legharis, Nawabs, Sardars, Chattas, Wattoos, Meeranis, Saieens, Mazaris, Noons, etc.
Why not elect someone who is from us? Who knows what the poverty is, who knows what the pain is, who knows what the suffering is, who knows what it is when the justice is delayed, who knows what it is like to not eat for 2 days, who knows what it is to get raped by some influential person, who knows what it is to get robbed by the robbers and police, who knows what it is to die without medicine, who knows what it is to spend the month just within Rs.5000, who knows what it takes to get independence.
Vote, but vote for yourself.
