Misuse of public money and power

http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2008/03/mbmarch/poverty-thumb.jpgAlmost 2 years back i wrote this on KMB & i didn’t know i had to repeat something similar in 2008, that the DONKEY example still holds relevance.

First of all thanks to Cowasjee (not updated yet on DAWN website) & Mr. Mansoor (KHI) & JC (Express, Feb 26) for addressing this issue in papers. I always wonder if our print/electronic media had not been highlighting issues (especially their role in recent times) we were doomed to be lost with available leadership. In the midst of BIG political battle these issues seem so minor but this is where the mistake lies.

While the social divide keeps on increasing alarmingly & just yesterday an inevitable increase was gifted in oil/diesel price our dear PM Mr. Soomro (interim gift by Mr. Musharraf who has been expert in bestowing us with thieves for 8 years & whose eyes were too weak to find a person sympathetic to people & their miseries from 170 million souls) has finally decided to make the most of limited time he has. After knowing our earlier masters had left no blood to suck from its people earlier he has now decided to go for the bones.

The chaudhries are in Karachi & are(will) try(ing) to persuade MQM on their side but will MQM learn some lessons from past & try to form a coalition with PPP for the betterment of this city. While make/break continues in political circles i just wonder if anyone (MQM/PPP in Karachi’s case) really gives two hoots to such an injustice to the exchequer with public money? Will MQM/PPP now do an ehtijaaj on this plundering (couldn’t find an advance version of this word) when there is no daal,roti,makaan,aata,tail,cheeni & inflation is in double digits?

Will Mr. Soomro follow just 1% of his own words delivered few months back if he really knowns the definition of corruption, as, once again, ironically, he is an highly educated professional. And will someone convey this message to him?

    There you go again with you political agenda again. My dear fellow Pakistani brother (if that is what you are), world fuel prices are skyrocketing and are at an all time high. How would you propose this increase be adjusted keeping in mind fuel prices have not been increased for about a year now in a coutry very well run by Mush.

    And PLEASE keep your comments about Mush and gang to yourself. Just because you get to write crap, does not mean this blog becomes your own personal loudspeaker.

    @MB stop blaming Mushy for everything, if it werent for him things would be worse and my friend they will soon get worse with Mr 10% in power.

    Fazool ki wohi bakwas.

    Would the cretins of this country who have chosen their ”shaheed leedur”’ ( after her DEAL ) explain why things haven’t turned hunky dory now that jamhoriat has arrived. After all , you have the zardari there as a unanimous choice of Sindhi voters and the poppy/transport mafia aka ANP being chosen as democratically elected voice of the masses.

    Borat once said in his movie and I find this so very relevant to our country …” in my country you dont let monkeys fly planes” ……we are seeing what happens when monkeys are allowed to vote.

    As for your bantering against MQM……….39 MPA and 19 MNA !!!!!!!!! …..its about time you wake up that people love it and atleast in Karachi and urban Sindh , would never vote for the Sindhi wadera shahi .

    ‘I, Mian Mohammad Soomro (Prime Minister of Islamic Public of Pakistan)grants following perks to former chairman Senate, Mian Mohammad Soomro , Islamic Republic of Pakistan’.

    What non-sense, lot of people forget that the same chap, apparently – took Rs.4cr in advance from Agricultural Bank of Pakistan which he headed – something similar to what Tariq Kirmani, ex-chairman of PIA did .

    Justice? Law? Decency? Gharat? Honesty? Conscience? – something missing in Pakistan ( not just from the leaders but from each and every one of us ).

    God save Pakistan!

    Ha! You think the PPP is going to do any good in this country? They will ruin it further (Just like that they did before).

    Please Keep Your Political Propoganda outside this blog. Nobody cares you are a PPP kay chamcha.

    when the dictator at that top is openly wasting taxpayers money then who can blame his cronies n sidekicks for doing the same

    he spent nearly Rs8 million as room rent for the hotel he stayed in..(his teams expenses and other expenses were seperate,just for the room rent of Mush’s royal suite 8 million were spent)
    Two Million Rupees a Night
