Another world record

Published: March 24, 2014

LONDON: The PML-N government has organised many events that have resulted in worlds records being made in Punjab during the last few weeks. Now the PML-N should add another world record to the list, i.e., the receiving of the largest gift in human history — $1.5 billion from the Saudi king — without any demand or service required in exchange.

There is no precedence in history of a country having received such a massive gift from another country and the Guinness Book of World Records must add this in its list.

    I guess the record would be for “the world’s largest baksheesh”. But nothing comes for free. We will have to live with the repercussions.
