This is apropos to resignation of Governor Punjab, I want to salute his courage. He exposed some failures of the government and proved that he is an honourable man, by showing his inability to continue ceremonial role of a yes man, in the wake of prevailing situation of rampant injustice and nepotism in the province. Everyone knows that corrupt and inept people are getting higher posts due to their links with people in power. This is the criteria which superior courts have scorned. Educated, honest and competent people are discouraged and forced to leave the country. It is clear that we lack good governance if we look at the dilapidated health, education and law enforcement systems. We must appreciate his gesture and maybe he has set a tradition. The points raised should be eye opener for the present rulers, if they are intelligent enough to take a hint.
