    Wasting energy on useless issues is common practice in politics of Pakistan. What is going with the local body system is the same case. Most of the people here pretend to be democratic but actually they are not ,If it is, they must understand that a democratic Govt takes decision according to democratic norms and taking all the forces on board with consensus.

    I feel pity for Zardari for trying to do the impossible. How the supporter of dictatorship understand the norms of democracy.

    What the Zardari did with Local body system seems much appropriate decisions in the current circumstances because I was sure any decision regarding Local body system without consensus would be another storm of traditional criticism.
