TV channels in the country air political talk shows with such abundance that they cannot always find quality politicians to participate in them.
Second- and third-rung politicians in their eagerness to outdo each other not only present a scene out of a fish market – all talking simultaneously without listening to the other – but also expose themselves bare with their hollow arguments.
Imagine, of all persons, even Imran Khan saying that a mission cannot be bound by a time limit. I always thought that a mission had to be selected very carefully for it to be clear, precise, attainable with the resources available and accomplished in the given time. Or else, it would be a vague statement, not worth being taken seriously.
Oh, Lord, when will we be blessed with leaders with clear vision and mission?
