Graveyards always belong to heirless people as no one seems to care about them. Wild bushes, stinking garbage and stray dogs stay at the final resting place of people and that creates many problems for those visiting the graves. Moreover, it becomes easy for drug addicts to get in as a result of broken boundary walls. Many graves get destroyed during heavy rain and condition further deteriorates. No proper arrangements are in place to maintain graveyards. There seems to be no authority to take such complaints in a proper manner and address them. There should be proper pathways, lamp posts and drainage system and the city government should take strict notice of the issue.
I am from Pakistan and currently living in New Zealand. The internet is the only medium to keep myself updated about what is going on in our country. Elections will be held soon and we are going to have another chance to select our politicians, this time I hope we will all vote for those who can bring positive change in the country. I request every one to vote wisely this time around. Before giving away our vote, we must make sure that the candidate really deserves it.
The Concerns Of Pensioners
The senior citizens of today are the people who built what we enjoy now. They deserve our respect and aid in their retirement years. However, they are often neglected and deemed a burden by their own family. In 2012, the in-service federal government employees received a 50% raise in their salaries whereas the senior citizens were given a meager 15% increase in their salaries which was not at all adequate as they depended solely on their pensions after retirement. I request the government to increase their pensions by 40% to recompense for the raise which was not given to them in 2010.
KU In Desperate Need Of More Buses
The Karachi University's meager fleet of 27 buses is not enough to cater to the transport needs of more than 28,000 students. Hence KU's below par transport system has become a source of major inconvenience for its thousands of students. Mostly these points are tilted to one side due to the massive overload of its passengers and students having no other alternative transport risk their lives by traveling in these buses. It is my request to the government and other multinational companies to help the university overcome its deteriorating transport facilities.
Pakistan Lagging Behind In Education
The government hospitals of Karachi are in extremely terrible state due to the current government's lack of interest in the health sector and also due to unjust allocation and distribution of funds. Moreover, these hospitals are in a pathetic state in terms of cleanliness. Similarly, patients do not get adequate attention from the doctors and most of the time these poor patients have to wait for hours for their doctors to show up. Most of the patients of government hospitals belong to the poor class who cannot afford medical care in private hospitals. I request the government to look into this serious matter and improve the appalling condition of these hospitals for the sake of humanity.
Every country's socio-economic growth is linked to education. It is observed that most of the educated countries update their syllabi on a regular basis to keep up with the growing trends of the world. On the other hand, in Pakistan no attention is paid to imparting quality education, let alone adapting the current trends in the syllabi. There is a dire need to make learning a functional activity that could help students in becoming enlightened citizens. Therefore, the government should improve the educational system by bringing it in line with the modern developments of the world.
