US consulate construction – Just another Scam

cartoon1Here the wrong doings always unearthed once they are gone. As Musharraf and “his ENLIGHTENED team” slowly disappear into history we shall come to know their kaarnamaz time to time. It’s very important to know past facts if one wants to move forward, one reason why posting events from past is necessary. But no need to panic and like my friend says hum awam bhi dheet hain so just one more story in our bucket:
The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) on Friday was told about the first order issued by Shaukat Aziz, soon after taking oath as the prime minister of Pakistan in 2005. It was to give 28 acres of KPT land, worth billions of rupees, to the US for construction of its consulate in Karachi for only Rs 1.1 billion on a 99-year lease.

On the personal instructions of Shaukat Aziz, the Americans were given the land at the laughable rate of Rs 15,000 per square yard against the market rate of Rs 222,000, causing a loss of billions to the country

    this is not unusual since it happens for embassies, not just the u.s.’, in every country.

    @ MB: Love that graphic! Defines Musharraf’s last three years in office very well.

  7. kabirdas on May 25th, 2009 @ 11:27 pm

    1. Agree with Swerveut. The pic indeed depicts the last three years of Mush.

    2. The price of land at Rs 15,000/ per square yard looks bit high to me for a country where the human life is so cheap.

    Inshallah America aaway-e-aaway hum ko sudharnay.

    BRAVO @MB! Is this is the best you (and PTI) can come up with against Musharraf? The one person who gave financial credibility to this country and the let the world know that we are not “all” cheap and corrupt thieves.

    This is not financial bungling it’s the least we could do to provide a safe abode to our “long time” US friends whose consulates were repeatedly targeted by religious fanatics.

    It’s the least we could do for “our friend” without whom we will seize to exist as a viable economy or a viable anything even a “failure”.

    It’s the least we could do for “our friend” without whose helicopters we cannot even deliver 10kg of flour to Earthquake effectees.

    Go dig something else, when Imran Khan was asked,”Why they were not able to dig up any stackable corruption scandal against Mush/”. His philosophical reply was,”Financial corruption is not the only form of corruption? Mush should be hanged for breaking constitution and Waziristan Operation blah..blahh”. Today everyone ( not PTI or JI) is bending over backwards to support operations all over the place.

    I know “our friend” is quite a debatable phrase but, how can this premise of allotting a piece of land to a vital Country for its Consulate makes Mush corrupt? Did he allot this to his son? Or his Chachoo?
