Rao Sikandar was a symbol of gentle politics. His personality was really impressive.Every politician should learn by reading his political life to be a good politician and sincere Pakistani. Now a days Pakistan is in dire need of such politicians. He built Okara as a model city of Pakistan. I will keep him in my prayers always.
