Eeman | 11 years ago | Reply Government is right. It won't allow anyone, apart from it, to destabilize the country.
Sidrah | 11 years ago | Reply The inquiry of the air blue crash would be made public. Pakistanis would be waiting to see this comment come to life. And about meeting the Chief Minister, Home Minister and the Interior Minister and their briefing the PM on the matter, what useful outcome does this has. It is just their casual chit chat and nothing more, for an appearance to the media.
