2020

After the demise of Quaid e Azam, our legislators obtained sucked into an unpleasant wrestle for energy resulting in conspiracies and backstabbing isolating them from public points. This led to overlook appropriation of taxpayers cash and dragging nationwide establishments comparable to judiciary, armed forces, and forms into this recreation of cat and mice.

Nearly seventy-three years have handed by and we as nation haven’t been capable of get of this quagmire. Our energy circles are nonetheless extra targeted on satisfying their lust for energy at any price. The financial system, development, and resultantly plenty undergo badly underneath the burden of mammoth inflation, excessive joblessness, and lack of fundamental facilities. The not so new PTI authorities has been underneath immense strain from days one as it’s reaping the fruit of its personal doings. Simply as PTI did, the present opposition needs the PTI authorities out of energy come what could.

Lately, PPP has supplied MQM Pakistan ministries in trade for his or her assist in toppling the federal authorities. The federal government however has failed to indicate strong motion in course that would offer any aid to plenty. One other yr (2019) has handed by, however the authorities retains blaming the predecessors for all of the ills within the nation.

Their claims of discount in present account deficit, enhance in foreign exchange reserves, and enchancment in fiscal house imply nothing till folks maintain getting buried underneath excessive costs of gasoline, petrol, electrical energy, and resultantly costs of the whole lot. Nonetheless, the federal government doesn’t appear keen to succeed in out to the opposition to discover a civilized method to get of this mess. For folks, yet one more yr has passed by with none actual hope of issues getting higher on the political entrance.

Allow us to pray that our legislators discover some knowledge within the new yr and so they sit collectively to get the nation out of the mess we’re in.  Except they accomplish that, I’m afraid 2020 can also change into one other yr of conspiracies, blames, and egocentric struggles for energy at the price of folks of Pakistan. I hope and pray that my apprehensions are improper, and 2020 proves to be the yr of actual change in Pakistan.
