It seems that not a week goes by when the Prime Minister does not announces a new motorway, is this going to be the story of our country? Pakistan is a country poverty rules millions are homelessness, illiteracy, disease and misery is a way of life while the rulers build billion dollar motorways? Are our leaders blind and deaf to the reality of the misery our people are living in? Their sadly misplaced priorities astound and we all would like to ask would not these billions of dollars be better spent on serving the people by building schools and houses and medical facilities, on programs aimed at poverty alleviation and the banishment of hunger and indigence? All we can do is pray! The nation does not ask for much, only basic necessities. All we want is one leader, only one, who has the gift of common sense.
