Kam | 8 years ago | Reply Out of 263 billion collected in 15 years, 169 billion recovered in first 4 musharraf years....... So if government was serious to recover money from last PPP govt era they could have collected 1000 billion. And the next govt could recover another 1000 from present govt. 'muk mukka' or in other terms politics of reconcilliation.
