So much for the tyres imported by someone in Punjab through of course Port of Karachi. These tyres sat idle for months on a lot in Lahore where mosquitoes bred and spread that came with it from Africa. Bugs, insect and rats have been traveling around the world from the day first ship sailed. We must have a fool proof method of watching out and eliminating such spreads. Lesson for all political/admistrative leaders: The life you save by being vigilant and corruption free may be your own or a loved one nearby.
