'Miracle of Singapore' (Dawn (Pakistan))
I WISH to congratulate Mr Ahmar on his thought-provoking article ‘The miracle of Singapore’ in the Sunday Magazine section of Dawn on August 9.
He has well summed up the factors that have worked for Singapore: zero tolerance for corruption, nepotism, inefficiency coupled with values for hard work, integrity, planning and perseverance.
Our leaders instead of giving tall orders while sitting in air-conditioned offices should come out in the open and work side by side with the commoners. When Pakistanis can work for countries abroad, then why can’t our leaders work for their own country with dedication!
It is really a sad anomaly.
