I hope you are fine. I am one of the oldest voter of PTI and have been observing the struggle closely all along.
You would appreciate the fact that other political parties are present since long and have become sort of mafia and therefore it would not be easy to get rid of them or win against them. So overpowering them is not as simple as just outvoting them but we would have to outwit them as well. Attack them instead of just defending and then complaining. Sincerity and hard work need to be supported through smart moves and aggressive strategies. I hope you understand what I mean.
I want to suggest something which I think would be key factors in the success of the party.
1- The Team
Select a team not on reputation but on performance. Only hard working and sincere workers should be made members of core committee responsible for making strategies and selection of candidates for contesting elections. In this regards a close eye should be kept on these members to thwart sabotage efforts from opponents. If you don’t do it now, you will have to do it in future as your opponents are shrewd and corrupt, in all possible ways, to their bones.
2- Intelligence Wing
PTI should establish an Intelligence Wing which works in a way that it outthinks the rivals. It would gather information about rivals about, like, what they are thinking and planning, ahead of execution of their plans. For this you have to plant your people in their ranks to preempt their moves. You should have inside information to plan ahead.
3- Separate Strategies for Cities and Rural Areas
We should consider working on the lines of separate strategies for cities and rural areas as both have different dynamics. We should employ our tactics according to the situations instead of plainly getting in to the contests.
4- Networking Among Those Who Matter
Politics is a game of timely maneuvers and counter maneuvers. You have to hit the base from where the opponents get their strength. After an event all cries are of no use. What I suggest is that PTI should create good connections among Bureaucracy, Judiciary, Media, Law Enforcement Agencies and so on, as there are always likeminded people around. The skills, to organize them and bring them to a cohesive effort, should be put to use.
5- Training of Workers Against Rigging
We should also conduct training sessions for the workers who take responsibilities of polling stations at the time of elections. I have felt that our workers lack skills to mobilize voters at the time of voting and it just does not help the cause. They are also not vigilant enough of the wrong doings of the opponents who are very experienced to take advantage of our lack of experience. A prime example is the fact that once PTI tightened their control on Men’s polling stations the opponents shifted their ill efforts to the women’s polling stations….. This however does not mean that PTI has all expertise to effectively oversee the men’s polling stations.
Thanks for your patience.
