A Road Less Trav­elled

Enterprise - - Letters -

Ev­ery po­lit­i­cal leader in our coun­try be­lieves that ev­ery­one apart from him is cor­rupt and doesn’t de­serve to hold public of­fice. In our coun­try, peo­ple have the li­cence to judge oth­ers. Ev­ery po­lit­i­cal leader in power pre­sumes that he is an epit­ome of hon­esty and his op­po­nents are a symbol of all that is bad. While the peo­ple strug­gle to have an ac­cess to ba­sic ne­ces­si­ties of life, party lead­ers take pride in claim­ing that they are on the right and have the sup­port of the peo­ple. Ev­ery party holds public meet­ings, pulling large crowds, where their lead­ers vow to change the destiny of the coun­try.

Un­for­tu­nately, their ac­tions do not speak louder than their words. The coun­try is in the grip of mul­ti­far­i­ous prob­lems and crises, which can only be solved by build­ing unity and sol­i­dar­ity among rul­ing and op­po­si­tion par­ties. We can only hope and pray that our lead­ers will lib­er­ate them­selves from the no­tion of self right­eous­ness and stop this ugly game of al­le­ga­tions and blame. All party lead­ers should join hands to work for the bet­ter­ment of the coun­try. This is the road that should be taken by lead­ers.
