"So that we could also elect our representative while using our right of vote in democratic system of Pakistan and if the performance of our elected representative is not satisfactory then we could brought them for accountability," he said.
Dr Ramesh Kumar was of the view that we all are Pakistanis and green color in our flag is representative for all residents of Pakistan irrespective of their religion and white color is symbol of peace.
