Lop­sided pri­or­i­ties?

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - KHALIFA ARMAN

It is un­de­ni­able that Pak­istan is con­fronting man­i­fold is­sues which are await­ing ur­gent need to solve them but un­for­tu­nately giv­ing many pri­or­i­ties to the epic projects which are not as es­sen­tial as some in fact is­sues are there like poverty stricken which is in fact our gi­gan­tic woe. More than 40 per cent in the coun­try live be­low the poverty line.

In ad­di­tion, ex­trem­ism, child abuse, mas­sacre, kid­nap­ping, rapes, cor­rup­tion, and other gar­gan­tuan is­sues are there which are to be solved but our politi­cians have no will to ad­dress these is­sues. They give pri­or­i­ties to mega projects to earn com­mis­sions. I ask the readers, what is much bet­ter for up­lift of the coun­try? — Via email
