Let us have an active people who are doers. I urge you to unite at local; district; province and national level.
Let us start by supporting good people in the forthcoming local body elections. Forget about which party they are from. Vote for good people who will work for welfare of our people. Judge individual candidates on basis of atleast what they have done to:
GET JOBS FOR OUR UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE
IMPROVE QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF EDUCATION
STOP CRIMNAL ACTIVITIES IN OUR AREA
STOP ROBBING OF PEOPLE THROUGH PERSONAL CORRUPTION
You can add more criteria as applicable in your area.
