M Saleem Chaudhry | 6 years ago | Reply If one evaluates the comments on this brief objectively,one can find how deeply indoctrinated ethnic followers manipulate and misrepresent the ground realities and there are more than enough to endorse to prove that to be actual fact. This is how the games are played to retain statusqo. However this can't go on for ever. The Engines of change like Imran Khan can transform the situation.
Ebaad | 6 years ago | Reply @Adnan Siddiqi: I can guarantee that a face like that would not help win even a union council seat in NA-246, let alone a national assembly seat. Going by your logic, the person you voted for in 2013 general elections; Nehal Hashmi deserved your vote only.
