It has almost been a year since the elections when PML-N won with a massive majority. I, along with most of the youth of Pakistan, was in favor of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) and Imran Khan, and the election results were painful for us. I was watching a candid address of Imran Khan to his party workers a few days back in which he discussed the money, wealth and properties of different politicians and he mentioned that some of the politicians own villas in Dubai at

Emirates Hill worth 5 to 6 billion dollars per villa. He then asked his workers to join him for a protest on May 11, 2014 at D Chowk Islamabad against rigging, Jang Group, Ex Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry and PML-N’s joint venture. The idea, after a whole year has passed, seems ridiculous. What took him so long? What will such a protest even achieve?
