I am fed up of the day in day out harangue of every Tom, Dick and Harry - be it on the TV talk shows, press conferences or other forms of media that they represent Athara Crore Awaam ! Now all of them claiming so kindly listen to it once for all. 18 crore Pakistanis consist of infants, children, women and old people also. Out of 18 crore only a little more than four and half crore are the registered voters and not all of them vote either. Even the so claimed largest political party PPP does not amass a total of even one crore votes for all its candidates put together. So how can anyone claim that they represent Athara Crore Awaam?! Please stop telling lies and making false claims.
