Whistle Off

As election results are flooding in, my heart’s falling for a few candidates. Like this poor guy, who contested from NA 48 as independent candidate. Distributed cards, brochures (I hope not the whistles – His symbol in elections) [even web presence] in wide area of his constituency. And what did he got — Nil vote (I wonder he gave his precious vote to whom…) BTW, he’s the owner of CJ .

In the process of election campaign, he (like many other candidates) spent hundreds of thousands to straighten his path towards the constitution avenue.

At this point, I get even more confused: by contesting in election he played his part towards grand betterment of country or he wasted this money that could’ve been used for the betterment of people?

    These are often bogus candidates "khalare" who are put forward by the heavey weight candidates to split an opponent’s vote.

    hamari quam ki adaat jahilon ko vote dainay ki nahi badli..
    perhaps we are poor enough to give vote to those who as powerfull or rich.
