Famous writer George Orwell remarked that, High sentiments always win in the end. The leaders who offer blood, toil, tears and sweat always get more out of their followers than those who offer safety and a good time. When it comes to the pinch, human beings are heroic. It is an accepted fact that the country cannot make progress in any field without good governance and governance is not possible without honest and sane leaders. But, unfortunately Pakistan after the sad demise of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah could not get a single leader who could guide the country towards prosperity. The 63-year-old history of Pakistan shows that almost all the leaders who ruled the country, after the demise of Quaid-i-Azam, were corrupt and dishonest. The situation of the country has worsened to an extent that almost all the government departments appear to be on the verge of collapse. The railways have an immense shortage of locomotion and several passengers and freight trains have been suspended. Similarly, Pakistan Steel Mills, PIA and many other vital organization are running under huge losses. Loadshedding of electricity and gas has broken all records. Even in urban areas the WAPDA carries out at least 8 to 12 hours of loadshedding. While SNGPL suspends the supply of gas to industry up to four days a week, the CNG station also remain closed for two days in a week, creating problems for the motorists. Now we need such leaders who can work devotedly for the welfare and prosperity of the country. We do not need leaders who only rely on hollow slogans. S. NAVEED RAZA ZAIDI, Lahore, January 19.
