NA-50 (Murree,kahuta,Kotli Sattian) Political Scenerio

The perceptions and preparations are on its height as the elections are approaching, government seemed to set out all for elections.  Despite having differences with Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz which is the main opposition party, the government is ready to leave the offices in march and let the care taker setup to play its role. Like other constituencies of Pakistan NA-50(Murree, Kahuta, Kotli Sattian ) is one the strong hold of PML-N but the things seems to be turning this time in this constituency, this time it would not be the situation as we did see in the last elections  at then PML-N had came back after long gap so the people were into to let them give a chance as they were tired of the military regime of Gen Musharaf and people had less options to vote because Jamat-e_Islami had not took part in the last general elections and PTI was also out of the game and popularity too.  Though Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf has set its roots throughout the country which surely cannot win the elections as far as constituency of NA-50 is concerned but it would definitely damage the PML-N’s vote bank, A seat  adjustment  with the JI can be good for PML-N. As far as the performance of current parliamentarians i-e MNA Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and MPA Raja Fayyaz Sarwar is concerned they could not give any mega project to the people of the constituency.

Murree would remain crowdy during the Holy month of Ramdan 
To some Murree maybe a tacky and over-crowded hill-station in Pakistan but for many Murree is a heaven in summer. Some people may have experienced 45-50 degrees Celsius so therefore Murree’s cooler high altitude climate provides them relief from the sweltering heat. As the Holy month of Ramdan is starting from today most of the tourist who have come over here from hot areas of Pakistan to spend summer under cool climate, this has been observed this year that because of higher temperatures in their respective areas they decided to spend the month of Ramdan in Murree. We would leave Murree on 28th of Ramdan a tourist said.
