All of us are aware of the fact that a perfect government cannot exist. But let’s put aside reality and work up our creativity. Who would be part of the perfect government…
PRESIDENT: AYUB KHAN
Muhammad Ayub Khan, a five-star rank army general who served as the President of Pakistan from 1958 to 1969 is probably the only eligible candidate for this very position.
Industrialization and rural development through constructing modern national highways along with successful foreign trips and policies are considered his greatest achievements and his era is remembered for successful industrialization in the impoverished country and thus was nicknamed ‘The Great Decade’
PRIME MINISTER: ZULFIQAR ALI BHUTTO
Quaid-e-Awam, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto served as the 10th Prime Minister of Pakistan from 1973 to 1977. He was the founder of Pakistan’s nuclear programme, and due to his administrative and aggressive leadership to lead this nuclear deterrence programme, Pakistan was able to stand tall against India and other enemy nations.
The Bhutto government carried out a number of reforms in the industrial sector which led to the high rise inflation rates take a bow. He further established a large number of rural and urban schools, including around 6,500 elementary schools, 900 middle schools, 407 high schools, 51 intermediate colleges and 21 junior colleges. Bhutto also abandoned the Western education system and local text books and literature heroes were encouraged. He was the architect of 1973 constitution and established hundreds of medical institutions through out the country.
And of course, how can we forget the time when he shook the UN conference floor and left like a bad-ass he was.
CHIEF OF ARMY STAFF: RAHEEL SHARIF
A four-star rank army general who served as Chief of Army Staff from 2013 to 2016. In the most desperate of times, Raheel Sharif took the authority and months over months worked to bring peace to his war-torn country.
Raheel initiated the popular Zarb-e-Azb after the Peshawar Massacre. Operation Zarb-e-Azb as it was formally known ended Taliban’s strong hold in North Waziristan and other FATA towns. He expanded the role of paramilitaries in Karachi which is widely credited with reducing the level of violence in Pakistan’s commercial capital. The Pakistani military under his command has also supported the democratically elected government on the federal level and the Baloch provincial and local government in ending the Balochistan insurgency by pursuing reconcilliation and integration of former militants back into mainstream Pakistani society.
Raheel Sharif retired in 2016 without interfering in politics at all in his long career and is still admired throughout the country.
FOREIGN MINISTER: BENAZIR BHUTTO
The first woman to head a Muslim-majority nation, Benazir broke all sexist traditions and rules when she came into power. The only woman to become prime minister of a nation twice, she was something extraordinary.
Focusing on her foreign policies, she held the most successful foreign ministry in decades. At a time when American alliance was under threat and India was powering up on Pakistan, Benazir took it upon herself to pull Pakistan out of this diplomatic nightmare and she was successful in doing so. Benazir Bhutto is said to have paid a state visit to North Korea in early 1990 and again in 1996. According to journalist Shyam Bhatia, Bhutto smuggled CDs containing uranium enrichment data to North Korea on a state visit that same year in return for data on missile technology. According to the expert, Benazir Bhutto acted as a female ‘James Bond’, and left with a bag of computer disks to pass on to her military from North Korea.
Thank you Benazir for your services.
SPORTS MINISTER: IMRAN KHAN
The lad who won the 1992 World-Cup for Pakistan and gave Pakistan three cancer hospitals and a prestigious educational institution. With a brilliant mind for politics, Imran Khan was second on our list of Perfect Prime Minister after only Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.
His knowledge in the field of sports is enormous and exceeds every former sports minister. It’s a proved fact that sports play a major role in any nation’s development and efficiency and so it needs to be headed by the most successful sports-personality this country has ever produced.
FINANCE MINISTER: NAWAZ SHARIF
With a sharp mind for business and economics, Nawaz Sharif will surely make a good Finance Minister. His business empire is undoubtedly gigantic then why not put aside his personal interests for a change and help his country. Not much of a lawmaker but he can surely bring game-changing economical reforms through Finance Ministry.
INTERIOR MINISTER: CHAUDHRY NISAR
The popular PML-N lawmaker who shut down Indian absurd claims in the recent international conferences. Highly educated and one of the few honest ministers, Nisar surely deserves this position.
CHIEF MINISTER (KPK): PARVEZ KHATTAK
Mr. Khattak has done a lot for his province ever since he was made the Chief Minister of KPK. His educational reforms along with his special attention to the development of health and police sectors, KPK was never better.
CHIEF MINISTER (BALOCHISTAN): AKBAR BUGTI
The only man who was able to unite Balochistan under one single cause. An Aitchisonian and an Oxford man, Nawab Akbar Bugti did everything he could for the betterment of his people. And for those who have their doubts about him, know that he wasn’t anti-Pakistan but anti-military rule!
CHIEF MINISTER (PUNJAB): SHEHBAZ SHARIF
A great man and a better leader, Shehbaz Sharif has worked years over years for his province and it’s mainly because of his restless efforts that Punjab is out of the dark ages and finally posting successful stories of commerce, security and hospitality.
CHIEF MINISTER (SINDH): MURAD ALI SHAH
Though he just took charge of the office, Murad Ali Shah deserved it for a long time. He’s done a great deal for Sindh and is still working to restore it to its former glory.
