As a Senator for Islamabad, and as someone who has grown up in this city, a city I have lived in for thirty years, I care deeply about Islamabad and its residents. Although Islamabad is a young city, it is an integral part of our country’s history. Its physical aspects and its demographics make it unique in Pakistan, and it remains a very liveable city. However growth, some planned and much of it unplanned threaten this heritage and portend to change Islamabad into a city that doesn’t work. Making sure Islamabad retains its original ambiance and vibe while catering to the modern needs of all its citizens, rich and poor alike is what I will work for. Part of the challenge is also to find the system of governance best suited to the needs of a city with a relatively high level of literacy.
