The wonder of bogus votes in Pakistan’s politics

His appeal of guilt was ignored by GHQ in which he admitted, had pushed the country back instead of taking it forward and he felt ashamed of his role and conduct.
Gen (r)Ehtesham Zamir couldnt avoid his buttering attitude toward working COAS Kiaynai (as once he paid homage to Musharraf when he was his crony of dirty military politics) termed the 2008 elections ‘fairer than 2002. He said the reason behind their fairness is that there was relatively less interference of intelligence agencies this time as compared to the last time(his time). But he stopped short of saying that there was zero interference in the 2008 polls.
Since political and military failure of 1971 army management had decided to spoil and broil the political process in favor of military so that no political team would get any kind majority or try to show supremacy on parties and army management as done by leaders of west Pakistan. So keeping Pakistan political infrastructure in the hands of hung parliament suits to military leadership. This idea of creation of unstable political govt is the genuine reason of ISI interference in creating bogus vote culutre that is accurately acting as hidden driven force to induct ISI planted men in political fields and pull back when they are not required.
The creation of million of ghost voters of MMA in KPK and MQM in Karachi were made under the supervision of ISI local cells ,providing back up covers by FC and ranger where ballot boxes were filled in last hours by these groups by condoning off areas through security agencies.
So these bogus voter act like magic wand for wrong parties,planted characters to rule the majority through power of gun and wrong means .That is why nobody sitting in law making houses are interested in independence of judiciary and election commission as both first would catch this open fraud.The latest update of 2011 under official parameters can be seen when few days back the NADRA’s mobile registration unit were caught by Punjab police which were registering “bogus” identity cards to people of Rawalpindi.
Here neither NADRA is accepting its game of creating bogus vote for Rawalpindi for coming election nor Punjab police is in mood of releasing them.The mobile van which was caught by Punjab police surely got clue of something fishy as this process of making votes of this typical area was going on for last many weeks.The mission of van was the plan by some big wigs of areas and confirmed by official notices issued by owners of Bharia town , Gulrez and Chaklala housing schemes (comes under cantonment board)to its residents, local guards and daily wagers which are in thousands in number.There were advised to change their last address into these mentioned areas.So this way they were holding IDs of thousands of poor worker working in this important constituency.
It is more interesting to see that as soon as NADRA van was caught ,an emergency plan of setting an office of NADRA in Bahria town was initiated.Now they are working round the clock to show the court that every thing is done under the official limitations of NADRA office now being established in building of Bahria town.
Bahria town under the command of Malik Riaz, in last years has prominently raised its status as top social helper of Pakistan.Where ever one go in his housing scheme he would find palaces of all generals who worked with Musharraf for spreading his enlightened culture .
Gen Ithisham Zamer is among one of them.He got lands in Bharia town RWP and different DHAs where he is enjoying life of royals in lush green golf courses and sitting around beautiful lakes while discussing future of Pakistan’s politics with other generals of Musharraf era .The cronies of generals are now working under the leadership of CEO of Bahria town so one can easily judge that why NADRA van and now its quick set office got its place in this town.
Here all facts support this observation that under agencies network the process of creating bogus votes are successfully preformed but secretly launch by giving it cover of govt signatories. It looks quite obvious in future Bahria town and NADRA joint venture would show us wonders of fake votes for either bringing Musharraf back to power or Malik riaz as new chief executive of Pakistan who is getting his publicity even through CNN(an American news network.
Majority of the Pakistanis are considering that holding free, fair and transparent elections is not possible in the presence of such crook maneuvering by ruling groups and it cannot come in the absence of effective electoral laws.Formation of independent election commission and punishing people having fake votes, fake degree, dual nationalities, many foreign accounts and unlimited property,are urgent needs of time to counter this white-collar crime in Pakistan as it is giving strong platform to its corrupt minority to rule the poor and misguided majority
Clearly can be seen , the battle for democracy in Pakistan has not been won and we are passing the stage of pseudo democracy for US interests under control by military establishment. It will take all the resources of survival of the Pakistani people and depriving them political sense of understanding to overcome the foxy maneuvering and crafty machinations of Pakistan’s military and clerical political elites or idiots who feel no ashamed of lowering national and personal stature behind policy of US-backed Musharraf.
For bringing real democracy to take hold in Pakistan, people of Pakistan will have to fight the internal enemies of democracy.They will have to overcome the crushing power of the US Pentagon and State Department officials, who are real supplier of this democracy drama under military cap in Pakistan
