Dear Political Leaders
For the last about 30 years, I’ve been noticing you guys talking about a “new (emerging)” or a “better” Pakistan. I know little about you, but I strongly believe that actions really speak louder than words. I fully understand that all of you are sincerely trying your best to do something good for my country and my people and I really appreciate what you have done so far. To me, the effort does count, not just the results.
When I talk to people and know that everyone is complaining about some political leaders’ shortcomings and also trying to hold them responsible for issues confronting us all, I begin to think that it would be completely unproductive if we start arguing about why all of you have been unsuccessful in certain things while having achieved certain other extraordinary milestones. But, personally, I respect all of you for having done something somewhere for our people and the country’s development. For sure, all of you had started your political career maybe long before I was born. So I am nobody to advise you on politics. But based on my life experience, which I gained through travelling around the globe for my studies, professional work or tourism I have learnt that this world has changed completely especially in the recent years. And, now, we see that we are living in a global village where globalization has taken over. This inevitable change is not occurring lately, it has already taken place, but the reason why you cannot see it is that you have been busy doing politics and serving my people within the limits of our borders. Yet we were cut off (or simply disconnected) from the rest of the world.
Thel global village is based on materialistic and consumption-based economies, which will be controlled by corporations not countries. There is no difference between a corp and a country because corporations sell/provide products or services in exchange for money, which they distribute among the corporation employees and the remaining profit goes to the shareholders. On the other hand, a country collects taxes and spends the collected revenue first among government employees, while the rest (profit) goes to the general public who happen to be the shareholders.
So as you can see both the country and the corporation first pay money to the employees and later to the shareholders and the general public. So I might not be an expert in running the country’s affairs, yet I happen to be an expert in business consultancy. I strongly believe that we can somehow work together for the sake of my people and my country, and then we can change everything and turn the tables around. I will definitely achieve my goal with or without you. But without you will take me 10 years and with your cooperation I will achieve the same goal within one year to have a new and better (emerging) Pakistan.
Why it is necessary to take action at this point of time? Because if we did not do anything now, then after five years, it will be too late. The financial statements of my country look very similar to every corporation, which went bankrupt in recent years, full of debt, a shit-load of liabilities, a plenty of unproductivity, over-expenditures, weaker currency, no savings, minimum assets, political instability, mismanagement, abuse of power, or all signs of a failed corporations which can burst any time. When the corporations go bankrupt, they lose all their remaining assets, name and repute. But when a country goes bankrupt, they go into civil wars and endless casualties of innocent people.
So let’s not talk about the revenue and loss of revenue and then the remaining assets because before human life, the loss of revenue or assets means nothing --- at least to me --- I am not sure what your views on this topic are.
My country is the 5th largest by population in the world and the 25th largest economy by GDP in the world. But, sadly, we are standing at 147 on the global HDI, which stands for the human development index, which is the main index used by the whole world to analyze the human development in that county. And, yes, this is the same index which was created by a former (late) Pakistani economist, Dr Mahbubul Haq. But, unfortunately, we can benefit from his knowledge to change our country.
The point is that it’s still not too late. I have a plenty of recommendations mentioned on our website. Feel free to grab them for your party’s agenda and I’ll be more than happy to advise you guys even further. I’m willing to do anything which can help my country and my people. Just do not waste your time trying to buy me out for a political benefit or to increase your votebank. I do not work for money, never did and never will. For now I need your help with certain things which can help me achieve my goal to help my people for a better Pakistan.
1. Sign a legislation to provide 100% free education up to Grade 12, interest-free loans for university students, universal healthcare, pure food, clean water and low-cost housing with no income or less than 50,000 Pak rupees earned monthly, whereas the high-income people should pay for the insurance policy premium for a similar service.
2. Sign a legislation for minimum salaries equal to the price of 10 grams of gold, unemployment benefit equal to 8 grams of gold, pension equal to 6 grams of gold, and welfare 4 grams of gold.
3. Stop trash-talking about other political parties because that creates political instability and that sends signals of a very bad repute worldwide about Pakistan. Due to that very reason, 99 per cent of international investors do not like to come to Pakistan for FDI (Foreign Direct Investment). And that’s not my therapy. I have spoken to a plenty of them.
4. Stop revenge politics because when you are trying to take revenge from your rivals (politicians) you come under their way to achieve their goals and the only person who suffers from those vengeful acts of yours will be the poor, not you or me because I’m still living my great life in North America, Europe and the Middle East, so does your families and kids, for most of them are living around me over here.
Surprised? How do I know that? Because all of your kids can't shut their mouths who regarding their dad is in Pakistan and how powerful he is. So let’s not get carried away and just try to focus on productivity.
5. Form a coalition government where everyone can work together for a better Pakistan based on the total number of overall votes, with vote percentage for each of the parties, i.e. 5 millions, 3 millions, 2 millions and likewise in order of popularity, repute, performance or then the leadership stature with the rest in the similar manner.
6. Issue party tickets to candidates at least three years in advance, not just three weeks before, so in case where they stand with their political allegiance, they can focus on helping out their people in their constituencies.
7. Not only impose a ban on child labour up to 14 years of age but also implement it in letter and spirit. I know you already have passed these laws in the past but nobody cares about them. So let’s not fool people by non-enforcement/non-implementation or a weak policy.
8. Sign a legislation to put all government records to be stored based on the Blockchain technology.
For now, these are the only things where I need your immediate help. The rest of the (plenty of) suggestions you can find on our website. To discuss everything in detail, I need to have a face-to-face meeting at your earliest convenience. Sooner is the better. If you care about my country and my people, I’m perfectly fine if you do not care about me --- to be honest, even I do not care about myself either because if I did, it would not be crazy enough to start Pakistan Movement.
