BPP Elections:

Community has not recovered from the last seven years of insecurity, on account of poor leadership, commitment to deliver and working for the community cause. Differences are to be resolved in close doors. However, history teaches us to be wise. In my humble opinion to address this concern whom should we vote for?


1.    Are you willing to display your SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and threats) analysis to the community?
2.    Are you a team player – if yes, elaborating the same, not what you want to do, but how you would do it – your action plan with defined time line.
3.    Your past contribution to the cause and concerns of the community and how would you incorporate that experience as a trustee.

  • The PARSI press in my opinion must quickly list down questions similar to the 14 proposed by Prof. Faredoon Kapadia to ask candidates to answer. The community must also be invited to send in relevant questions.

    Using their exoerience to add and modify these, the Short listed questions can be posted to the candidates giving them a week’s time for response within limited space anf time. These responses must be simultaneously printed as a supplement in the papers like jame PARSI times PARSI aawaz etc for wider readership. Based on these answers then the electorate may be able to make a wiser decision. This approach is cost effective in terms of time and money and gives little chance for manipulative efforts by candidates to the electorate avoiding public gatherings.
