I salute them

Though the turnout remained lower this time but the people of Pakistan played their part towards a democratic Pakistan. The main reason of low turn out in NA-127 was the murder of 4 people including the PP-154 candidate Asif Ashraf.

Even thoughl, we are all grateful to those who came to polling stations and casted their votes; and we must salute the old people, like in the pictures below who are dependent on others, who came to cast their votes and played an active role in deciding the future of Pakistan.


Above is the oldest women, I saw, who came for polling.



Captin: Old people who came to polling stations and casted their votes, even they were not physically strong.

    Now all the winners who said following:
    when they win
    They will fix electric issue.
    They will make sure every child on the road will have education.
    They will fix Aataa and gas issue.
    Poor’s will be happy.

    I ask all Pakistani’s do not let them keep on talking about Musharraf and judiciary to distract from real issues.
    Put itzaz back in jail. He is talking about destabilization of Pakistan.
    Our real issues are poor are nto getting no long marches for that but these people are worried about less important issues.

    For all these issues we have to have an accountable gov. PM and President and without independent and free judiciary & media we can’t hold any one accountable. For power atta clean water education

    You can address all those issues only if you have full control over law and order and authority to make decisions.Mushraf along with Qateel league had that mandate but they did not deliever. Mushraf had full power but didnt built any dams for electricity.

    So right now if he stays in power he will mess up with new Prime Minister..and tweak politicains in making pro-Mushraf government. exactly like when he created Qateel League back in 2002.

    Its OUR responsibility to support Aitzaz in every aspect. PPP and PML-N should unite and kick out the dictator. This is mandatory that new government should be independent and free from Mushraf’s bullshit agenda.

    Mushraf has truly ruined the country …he has stabilized the country by killing his own people.
    Now he needs to be kicked out.

    After hearing latest statements by MQM and Zardari this has been clear that they have learned how to talk in the interest of Pakistan and for the unity of Pakistan. I pray and hope their intentions are same as well. However Nawaz Sharif is still talking about revenge. No doubt Nawaz Sharif is losing credibility among educated Pakistan. This is not time for revenge as no one’s hands are clean. Its a tragedy we have not produced new good politician who could have won over all of Past wrong doers. So lets not talk about evangel. Talk about people and unity of Pakistan. Talking off the real issues is like not paying attention to real issues through which winners got votes. Take care of poor of Pakistan and law and order. Stop complaining and bashing past talk about solutions.Now I am listening to Shahbaz Sharif on ARYONE WORLD , He is talking about we will do this and that , I ask him where the money will come from? Do not make roads from borrowed money please.Make these roads fromt he moeny which politicians keep in their pockets. Also Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif should stop blame game talk about Pakistan now. Stop tell us what PML-Q did tell us what you will do.

    @ SUH:
    was there any other option, instead of giving a chance to someone else, as the former government was not so much popular among the masses..?
    and destroying in what sense?

    Well, this make me stick to stomach as I didn’t vote.I left Pakistan 8 years ago for US, still living there but you guys have no clue how much I miss my country. I did achieve the so called "American Dream"… good job, nice car, house… but its All just Glitter. They say "Mother Land is like mother, and trust me, it is (at least I realized now after leaving it as before, I was just a careless/free teen who cares just hanging out with friends and try to wear designer clothes)

    Allah keep Pakistan safe and give its rulers & public all the sanity to protect our country; for which our parents/grand parents scarified so much.
