The real culprits are our own state institutions, who fail in their duty to put in tough checks and balances to curb corruption. If our state machinery was properly run by honest people, there would be no cartels or mafias run by the Zardari’s, Sharif’s, or Malik Riaz. We need Imran Kahn and Qadri to unite against the culprits instead of fighting with each other. I bet Sharif’s would still be in majority if no rigging was done as Punjab is with them and Punjab is 65 % of Pakistan. Our real aim ought to be the welfare of the nation and the humanity at large. Our political ambitions are only means and not the goals.
