In a way, every person in this country wields certain powers. It makes no odds whether one is a politician or an ordinary citizen. But most of the people tend to misuse their powers. People largely think about their pockets and do not think that by doing their jobs sincerely they can help in developing their nation. I think the masses are not much different from their rulers. S.FARAH ABBAS NAQVI, Karachi, October 13.
