THE dilemma of Pakistani politics, in general, and Balochistan, in particular, is that the incumbent government only witnesses its presence to resolve the long-lasting issues and grievances of he people when they are near completing their tenures.
However, by this practice they seem to be enhancing their vote bank for the coming elections. The imposition of the governor’s rule in Balochistan has barred a few religious and other individuals who had perpetually been the part of every new sitting assembly by the aforementioned tactical process, explicitly known as election era politics in Balochistan.
The election era politics has a very significant role in this volatile province where almost every individual forgets his political affiliation and starts supporting the person who has given him a job or a transformer.
The change in political leanings occurs only in the pseudo-religious and mainstream political parties but, in contrast, the nationalist parties have an ideological support.
Hopefully, the imposition of the governor’s rule and the stunning recovery of 50 transformers from the house of the JUI (F)’s ex-nazim from Qila Saifullah during NAB’s raid might appear as the straw that breaks the camel’s back and also will give a chance to experience fresh faces in the coming elections.
