    What a corrupt system we have which only proves that we are not worthy to rule but are very good at loot and ghsooooot. This is perhaps the only reason that no law applies either on them or our JAWANs. Recommend

    Almost all cadres of the four pillars of the state are benefitting from the policy to acquire land at concessional rates. What is the way out? The way out is to ban the privilige and declare it both illegal and unconstitutional both for civilians and military personnel..Recommend

    Assalam-o-Allaikum Warahmatullah.PM Gillani is distributing the most expensive plots in the judges in Islamabad generously as these plots are PM Gillani’s personl property.If PM Gillani has soft corner in his heart for the SC’s judges then he should have to distribute the plots from his own property not from Pakistan’s most expensive property and this is the live example of growing bureaucracy under the umbrella of government for the obtaining of its illegal benefits from the bureaucracy and to create more and more corruption in the key departments of Pakistan.Recommend
