Imran Khan and Nawaz Sharif demand immediate elections in Pakistan
Leader of Pakistan Muslim League (N), Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif has demanded for early general elections and feels that every passing day of the present regime of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) is like a poison for the country.
Prior to that, Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) and cricketer turned politician, Imran Khan has also demanded for mid-term elections a number of times.
Since last one year, PML (N) and PTI have emerged as political rivals and most of the political analysts in Pakistan feel that they are going to be the two major forces in the upcoming elections because of the extremely poor performance of PPP.
Before the elections of 2008, a military dictator, General (r) Parvez Musharraf ruled Pakistan for almost a decade. There was economic stability in the country during his tenure but the masses were not happy with some of the policies of Musharraf like the
stance on war against terror, the brutal killing of Nawab Akbar Bugti, Lal Masjid operation and the unjust removal of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
All the above mentioned incidents turned out to be the downfall of Musharraf and Pakistan Muslim League (Q). The anger of the nation against these policies was quite evident in the elections of 2008 as the countrymen voted for the democratic parties in a
hope that they will change the line of action and will work for the betterment of the masses.
As a result of that, PPP was able to form a coalition government in the centre, Sindh, Baluchistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Whereas, PML (N) formed a coalition government with PPP in Punjab.
However, against all odds, the so-called democratic government failed to deliver the goods for the people of Pakistan and extreme corruption and mismanagement has been witnessed in the country since last four years.
At the present moment, the life of an ordinary man is in a miserable condition and the overall economy of the country is also facing a lot of challenges.
In such circumstances, it is imperative for the state of Pakistan that a new and strong government is formed, with fresh vision, which is based on honesty.
It remains to be seen that the people of Pakistan stand up for their rights and vote for the right men or not.
