This article is a submission by Omer Khan of 1st year. His views about elections.
I witnessed my first elections at TIP. It was no doubt a thrilling experience.
I would surely congratulate the current panel. But the panel that I supported was ASL.
For me ASL was a complete package, Arsalan Alam has management skills yet experience, Shehryar Shareef, well this guy deserved to win. Not even being a part of TISF he was already working to revive TIAF. He would have surely done it if he would have been given a chance to be a part of TISF. Umer Lodhi, who doesn’t know him for his intelligence in other words he is renowned only for his intelligence. He would have been perfect for the post of FS.
At the time of campaign, voices like ‘’Vote Wisely’’, ‘’Vote for Change’’ could be heard everywhere but unfortunately the results didn’t turn out to be as wise.
Our current president, Aaminah Shehzad, former president of the society Paintoos no doubt is a leader. But what would we do of a leader who won’t fight for the other students’ demands. We demand night life, we demand fun trips and we demand events. Aaminah being a HUGEEEE fan of our president obviously won’t fight for all this. She has no issues with the president or our dean. When asked she said, ‘’Yaar achay hain wo dono, they are really sweet’’. Time to see how much sweetness she can extract out from them, being TISF president. She can either be students’ favorite or president’s.
We wanted a fighter for the students, for students’ happiness. Will Aaminah fight against our president? Why would she? She never attends any night event or goes for any trip. Since I have joined TIP I have not even seen any event organized by PAINTOOS. They say they are not given resources. Dedicated people don’t need any resources. As it is said, where there is a will, there is a way. And not their fault, 3rd year TDT students don’t have enough time to organize any event, they are so stuck with their mini thesis and their weaving. It’s not easy for them to make out time to arrange events for us. But wait, did I just say she couldn’t make out time due to their mini thesis? Duh! Our current President is soon going to be a fourth year TDT , which means FINAL Thesis? No? I am sure she would have plenty of time to create fun for us. Such a wise decisions. APPLAUSE!
Now comes the GS, major part of his campaign was dedicated to AISEC. He says, through AISEC he is going to promote TIP, and AISEC does this and AISEC does that.
Now I need to think, being a member of AISEC he could have done it already, no? Why did he need to be the GS to ‘’promote’’ TIP ?
They were like; AISEC is a platform to provide us many opportunities. Tou bhaai someone ask them, does AISEC only allows its members’ university’s students council i.e our TISF to avail the ‘’PLATFORM’’
He has been student of TIP for two years. One session in two years. Talk about availing the platform.
Oh yeah I do agree that due to that one session many people got to know about AISEC and they applied to be part of it. But Mr. Asad, I think only being a student you could have invited AISEC people for many sessions.
I know you will do something. But the AISEC part, just cut the crap!
Stupid voters who got influenced by AISEC.
FS? What’s his name ? Let me think. Oh yeah! Sumair Khalid. Sorry it took me a while to recall his name as he is so popular. The chittiyan kalaiyaan fan.
Wait! I think his name is Humaid. Oh yes! Humaid Khalid. So popular yet so active. Everybody knows him. LOL!
When I got to know, I was like, who the heck he is? Half of my class’s reaction was like that. I even have to think what to write about him. I haven’t seen him working, I haven’t heard his name.
One thing I would like to share, one of my friends asked him during his campaign, ‘’ Why are you fighting for the post of FS ? ‘’
His answer was really irrelevant for me, ‘’ Muje LODHI ko HARANA hai’’
He stood up to defeat not to win. He was there for his own personal grudges not for the sake of TIP.
No doubt people call him honest. He has no shame in telling that his interest was defeating Lodhi rather than ‘’winning’’ the seat of FS and do something for TIP.
A great round of applause to all our ‘’WISE’’ voters.
Best of luck TISF.
Looking forward to your performance.
