These days, our leaders are making a lot of myriad demands like full autonomy, 1940 resolution, more provinces, 15 provinces, 25 provinces, Azad Balochistan, Sindhudesh, Paktunistan, etc, etc. It is interesting to note that all these demands are for betterment of the leaders, not people. As for the public, the order of importance in their list of demands is the same and intact all over Pakistan, from Chitral to Karachi; no load shedding, no water shortage, no ethnic or provincial hatred, good law and order, no high prices, clean cities. People want the law to be applicable to all, self-sufficiency in all respects and a more powerful army. -Z. ISRAR, Karachi, via e-mail, July 18.
