Intrigues & brinkmanship
The man at the helm thought it was all about power politics and for deliverance other than slogans it was a never ending tale of miseries and corruption for the people, driving them to desperation. Their hopes for relief after 8 long years of dictatorship were dashed.
This coalition setup focused their energies on brinkmanship of power politics and totally disregarded welfare of masses, or security of life for those who had elected them. Today wheels of industry have grinded to a halt because of crippling power shortages rendering millions of daily wagers unemployed. Prices of all essential agriculture produce were hiked to international level for benefit of few feudal landlords, with no similar rise in wages or subsidy for poor. Thousands of residents of Karachi have been killed in target killings, while trade and business activity in the financial hub of Pakistan marginalized by lawlessness, extortion and kidnappings.
The nation’s public sector corporations have been destroyed with losses and liabilities in most cases exceeding assets only because of massive corruption and mismanagement by incompetent political cronies. In four years this government has piled the national debt to almost double of what it was in previous 60 years with nothing to show as far as infrastructure, or development, but instead massive deterioration in all sectors.
