Waiting for Godot?

It seems that our politicians are getting more and more impatient with every passing day. If you observe from their press conferences, addressing to public rallies or political talks shows, they do not let go any opportunity to indulge in blame game on each other.

For instance Chief of Pakistan Tehree-e-Insaaf Imran Khan has found number of times calling Chief of Jamita Ulema-e-Islam (F) Maulana Fazlurehman as Maulana Diesel. Maulana Fazlur-e-Rehman goes a step ahead and calls Imran an agent of Zionism while responding and says PTI is not holding the sit-in and it seems that some sort of music concerts is going on which is damaging the culture of the country. On the other side, ruling political party Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz in spite of thinking that how to find a solution to the political chaos in the country, its  federal ministers usually found in the press conference degrading the Chief of PTI. Imran khan has given a huge chance to the ruling party by stepping a side from their basic demand of resignation of the Prime Minister of the country, but PML N does not seem in the mood to take advantage from the offer and go ahead to end the political deadlock. But they have found another way to deal with the situation, criticizing Imran Khan and launching huge anti-PTI advertisement on the electronic media to defame him, but huge participations of people in the rallies of PTI showing that plan of PML N is not getting the desired result, than why not come up with another plan or rather with something more intelligent. PML is in the government and it is always the government to show the flexibility to find the solutions of political tensions.

On the other side PTI also put the blames on the characters of the politicians without solid evidences, they are in a state of mind where they are finding all other political parties against them and they are the only one to redress the grievances of the people. PTI has announced to launch country-wide protests and to make the cities paralyzed in order to get his political goals. PTI should also think for the daily wagers and by destabilizing the already disturbed economy of the country he would not do any good for the people.

If we put a glance on the province of Sindh, Pakistan Peoples Party is in the provincial government and they are often found in a tussle with other major party of the province Mutahida Qaumi Movement. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is the young leader of PPP and often he likes to criticize all other major political parties of the country. Former President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari does not spare a chance to criticize the Chief of PTI and often says that Imran Khan does not know the art of politics and he is immature so better is he continue working as a philanthropist. MQM also responds with the same language to PPP. It seems that we are living in a “Blamistan”, everyday and night, from TV channels to the front pages of all major newspapers we would find the political news and almost all of them are accusing each other for all the wrong doings in the society. It is the prime duty of the politicians to uplift the nation in all possible aspects, from economy to health and educational facilities, morally, socially but it seems that have failed to do so. It is the time that all the political parties must come forward putting aside all their differences and start working for the betterment of the masses for what they have been given the mandate by the people.
