afficer khan | 13 years ago | Reply well i wonder when somebody say that holding or not holding a degree doesnt make any difference...given the fact that all correspondence and everything inside and outside the parliament is done in english..i wonder how people like jamshed dasti can understand what they are signing?that is why only 27 members of the 342 knew about what was in the 18th amendment..the remaining just follow their party leaders....we need educated parliamenterians..and at least the cabinet should be of technocrats....just like usa...they have qualified professionals for every department...
Siddiqui | 13 years ago | Reply It should have been taken for granted that confirmed cheats & fraudster should not be allowed to represent people as their "leaders". Justice Iqbal Sb has done the nation a tremendous good by declaring this. This should now be "got" implemented as this Govt will not do so on its own since it is a govt which encourages cheating & corruption.
