The manifesto presented by PTI chief Imran Khan deserves appreciation. It is very balanced and it really reflects the desires and needs of masses. In his speech he categorically declared a war against corruption and disclosed some of his foreign policy parameters, which were really a delight to hear. These policies had a blend of pragmatism and idealism in them. This combination made his speech and his manifesto worth noticing. The other difference that was witnessed was the dynamism of the crowd, that came to the procession on their own will, not persuaded by any government machinery or anything else. This shows how people in Pakistan are desperate about a change in system. MARIAM AYUB, Lahore, November 1.
