Mass of people jumped on streets; celebrating & congratulating each other as a new member country emerged in the world on 9th July 2011 & it will be named as South Sudan. Primarily, South Sudan was an integral part of Sudan then after the historical referendum in January paved the way for the making of South Sudan. VVIPs & many other ambassadors of different countries will mark their presence in the capital, Juba, to see the emergence of a new country. It would be a great day for the peoples of South Sudan because they had lost terrific amount of peoples lives during the clash of ethnic groups of North & South Sudan. Now, the time has come, to forget the past misapprehensions & build a constructive bridge between both countries in present & work together for the development of both countries in future.
Apart from Oil reserve fields, South Sudan has huge amounts of arable land & the Nile river flowing through its center. Government should have to espouse the technique of 'Institutional Farming' along with knowledge based training to his farmers. It will help farmers to harvest many crops at one time. Government should give vocational training to the unemployed citizens & skill training for the unskilled persons.
But how could all this possible? First & foremost, South Sudan has to reignite its peaceful relations with North Sudan. Cross-border disputes, insecurity between peoples etc; both Governments should have to allay it first, collaboratively. South Sudan, now as the 193rd country in this world, must also reach out to its other neighbors. It has to actively participate in the dialogue process of African Union & other global groups. Trade with countries should be its first objective.
But before all that South Sudan's government must reach out to its own citizens. They have to ensure the basic things for the citizens like Freedom of religion, freedom of expression, Equality between peoples. Government must construct a confidence dialogues between ethnic groups, along with that give freedom to media because media's role in any country is very important. People-to-People dialogue between both the countries is very much important & they have to run for it. Finally , Other countries should support & help the new country and its people in he process of development as they desperately need that. United Nations which is the supreme body, should come & urge the members to give their support & help, in building infrastructure & to nail out other discrepancies which have been diluted in the system of South Sudan.
Congrats to all civilians of South Sudan... Party hard guys!! *'Hallelujah'*
