In search of leadership

October 14, 2021

According to some news reports,19 bureaucrats have gotten three housing units each in government schemes. Unfortunately, the extraction of excess perks, assets or facilities by a super-privileged elite at the expense of the hapless, inflation-riddled nation continues unabated.

The incumbent government’s performance is no different from that of its predecessors, which it loves to bash in public on regular intervals. The pertinent question is: who is going to stem this rot and when? One can only hope that we shall find a great and determined, yet humble and sincere leader who could lead us to our destiny as envisioned by Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Muhammad Iqbal.
