Analysis of The Devolution plan
The devolution plan designed to provide democracy at the grass root level has not worked well.Such a devolution at local level is quite good for the countries having high literacy rate and possessing democratic norms , yet it has not provided the results set by its mentors in pakistan.
(1)It has ensued a tug of war between district and province.
(2)It has strengthened biradri politics and feudalism in pakistan.
(3)The move to empower people has actually empowered the privileged class more than the common man.
(4)It has brought corruption at the grass root level instead of democracy.There were bids for the votes to elect district and tehsil nazims.
(5)It has made the election process a dearly game.The expenditure incurred for the UC nazim was far more than the election of a provincial assembly member.So it has become a game for the millionaires.
(6)It has rendred bureaucracy toothless and given enormous powers to the political executive.
Its adverse implications and recommendations will be discussed shortly.
regards

Law and Order.
Excluding law and order from a DCO,s jurisdiction andplacing it at the disposal of nazim has served to cripple these deptts.It was seen during crisis in Dera Bugti and Kohlu distts. when nazims' sympathies were with the miscreants and the DCOs had to be active to control the situations.Police and other law enforcing agencies had to face problems due to the interference of nazims in their affairs in punjab and sindh too.
Magistracy powers..
In order to separate judiciary from executive the judicial powers had been taken back from DCO.It has increased burden on distt. courts.Specifically during local bodies elections the governments had to set up election tribunals.These issues were previously decided by the Assistant and deputy commissioners very effectively.
There is no proper price control mechanism available.Previouly magistrates used to check it and fine the culprits at spot or even imprison them.

As far as positive aspects are concerned the devolution plan if implemented with true spirit is an ideal system but the ruling party does not seem to adopt it willingly.
(1)One thing positive about this plan is that at least at the UC level it has brought a farmer or labourer to sit alongwith feudals.
(2)It has served to increase women participation in politics specifically in villages.
(3)It has resulted in pouring in of huge finances for social and economic uplift in rural areas from the federal government and the world bank.
