Pak-China accords to provide a million jobs: Nawaz”... a headline in a section of the press on November 8, 2014, reminded me of a promise by General Pervez Musharraf, ex-president of Pakistan. After he took over he promised to create one million jobs in construction industry only. Once Winston Churchill, British prime minister, said, “Politics is the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year and to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn’t happen.” Our politicians are expert at making promises, deliverance is not their problem.
