THIS IS CHANGE! Independent NAB in KPK results in one senior official giving back 200 million rupees to the exchequer. This is exactly what IK is talking about. Now think about the rest of Pakistan...there are many individuals who are much bigger fish than him taking their cut. Billions looted from the people - average person has to pay for this through increased bills and taxes.

This is huge news and this is exactly what the solution to the problem is - an independent NAB; well done PTI. But of course this isn't big news because Veena Malik's son being born is more important!
