People appeal CJP, COAS to solve their problems. Does that mean they don’t trust the elected govt?
The trend of citizens requesting Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Saqib Nisar is raising questions over the trust people have in the government.
People from all across Pakistan are appealing COAS and CJP to solve their problems, when the government is responsible for solving problems of the common.
Does that mean people don’t trust governments, be it of any party?

A column on Urdu point said that COAS was the only solution to Pakistan’s foreign isolation
Here’s a letter published in The Nation requesting CJP to take action against deteriorating condition of Shikarpur
All of this indicates that despite having voted their representatives to power, the people of Pakistan trust the Army and the CJP more than the federal government and that is something they need to work on.
It is extremely essential to win the trust of public and that would only happen when the governments start to deliver.
