    For a second I got out of my bias against PTI and realized that This is revolution. Never in my life as a Pakistani I could’ve imagined that the governement employees would actually act like public servants. A very impressive and bold step by PTI.

    We all know that corruption is rampant in the Government departments. I particularly know a young police officer in KP who has purchased plots worth millions of rupees in Islamabad, of course out of ill-gotten. This guy will be my benchmark of PTI’s sincerity towards eradication of corruption in KP.

    To KPK government: forget the assets and stop playing politics, try to eliminate terrorism first. These assets and bank balances are secondary in this crunch time.
