NOW the clouds of doubt about Pakistan’s next general election are gradually clearing. Voters must have some checklist before candidates knock at our door. Voters should ask candidates that they had promised us the construction of model villages where primary schools, secondary schools, water and sanitation, roads from village to market would be constructed, but they left “us the day we elected them”.
Terrorism has increased, corruption has increased manifold and poverty has broken our back.
The last two floods in 2010 and 2011 have further aggravated the situation. In the last five years every basic indicator of life has touched the lowest level and the world is seriously considering us to be a failed state.
Polio is far away from eradication in Pakistan. Every country in the world is achieving all Millennium Development Goals set by the UN but we are far away from achieving even a single development goal.
MDG targets are in the middle of a crisis and unachievable because of the various issues concerning our governance. Our children are dying of measles which has been eradicated by others in the word many years ago. How does the candidate plan to fight the above battles?
