Through your online newspaper, I would deeply appreciate and endorse the decision given by the tribunal regarding the burning election conflict in PK-90 upper Chitral. We also thank the honourable judges for being immensely calm for a very sensitive issue during the hearing process.
The people of Chitral absolutely do not appreciate the baseless allegation against the honourable tribunal members by the opponent candidate during the proceeding period; it should be waited for until the final decision. It is a basic and fundamental civil right of every individual in a democratic society to raise their voice against lawlessness, injustice and other issues. However, there are certain rules and regulations that you have to follow. On the other hand, we pay tribute to and offer our deep gratitude and congratulation to Mr. Sardar Hussain for his strong arguments, patient and political vision to challenge the engineered result by the negative elements.
This is his strong understanding of political behaviour and profound awareness of law that he conquered over the rest. Now it is no more an allegation but rather has been proved by the court that there had been rigging in different polling stations during the general election (May 11 2013) through black money, hidden doors or by other sources and negative elements. It is very disgusting to think about such actors who snatched away the public’s right to vote and make decisions against their wishes. Not only this kind of act is taking away from their personal opinion but rather breaking a law that should be followed very carefully when it comes to elections, which are made for the betterment of the society. Mr. Hussain adopted a civilized and democratic way to express their anger against this engineered results by challenging the judiciary.
Now we are going to request to all our fellow Chitralian to keep in mind the leadership prospective and not the money and contractor prospective. Now, the public is allowed to vote again in the coming days, we must remember to make a clear distance between a contractor mafia and a professional politician otherwise we will suffer again and there will be a big vacuum in Chitrali politics forever. We need young, energetic, educated and patriotic leader in the Assembly that will first fight for the Development of Chitral with a bright future ahead. It is the responsibility of the candidates to tell the public about their priorities during the upcoming election campaign. We expect the former MPA to tell the public what he did for the enlistment of Chitrali masses during his five and half year tenure while he was in the government.
In contrast, Mr. Hussain has to show his future plan for the people of Chitral. We urge and request the people in every constituency to ask questions in regards to the development of Chitral and also evaluate his performance when he had the power. I remember between Reshun and nearby villages a road was destroyed due to flood after many months the people of the area kept waiting for their representatives to help them but in vain. Finally, the people of the area volunteered and helped themselves to restore the traffic for their daily life. Further, the people of the area suggested to rename the road in the name of the ex-MPA and reasoning it morally defeated.
For now this is the right time for the people of Reshun to ask him and reject him due to his poor abilities and bad performance while he was the member of parliament .This is just one example and there are thousands of cases that are out there in Chitral for his negligence and poor performance for the people of Chitral. The ongoing corruption in different departments and areas of Chitral which effects lower class citizens, is no longer hidden, specially the situation of different roads are eyewitness of the representative who was in power than.
Can our previous representative tell the Chitrali public how much money was being spend on Chitral, Mastuj road?, and why it has not been complicate yet?. We would like to know that where has the money gone? The same situation in different institutions that had been approved by the government in the past but they are not completed yet or the plan has been abolished completely due to his negligence. The Chitrali people want to know about this horrible and unacceptable situation, before they go to the polling station again in a couple of days. Finally we are humbly requesting the people of Chitral specially for those constituencies where polling will be held, use your civil and precious right for the honest, educated, young and energetic candidates regardless of their political affiliation. You can bring prosperity in our area through a suitable candidate and you can make worse decision by voting for a person who is uneducated and has poor political vision, who also has no goals and ambitions for the people of Chitral.
