I am writing to express my deep concern about the lack of development and unequal resource distribution in rural areas, specifically in my hometown. As a native of a small village, I have witnessed neglect that has persisted for decades.

Allow me to paint a vivid picture: the same bumpy roads I traveled daily with my father to school continue to remain unchanged. Local shops, flimsy and limited in their offerings, have failed to evolve despite the passage of two decades.

My hometown, like many others, is often the first to bear the impact of natural disasters like floods. In times of crisis like these, the inadequacy of support and infrastructure further worsens the struggles of the residents of my hometown and many others.

It is disheartening to witness the difference between the rural areas and the perks enjoyed by metropolitan cities like Islamabad. While urban centers flourish, rural communities are left to deteriorate due to the unchecked exploitation of resources and the omnipresent effects of corruption by our leaders.

This imbalance is not just a matter of inconvenience; it is a fundamental injustice that highlights the need for immediate action. Therefore, I implore our policymakers and leaders to prioritize the development of rural areas.

We must advocate for policies that ensure equal distribution of resources, infrastructure improvements, and access to opportunities for all citizens, regardless of their geographical location.

I call upon our community members, authorities, and concerned citizens to unite in addressing this issue. It is only through collective effort and a shared commitment to change that we can build a more equitable and prosperous nation.
