    If the performance of a minister and secretaries wad not good why not remove them. transferred because they have sucked entire blood of his ministry and now leaves to suck more in a more sophisticated manner. Performance of Chairman and his deputy was also not good why they are kept in their positions. There only work was to build real estate in Pakistan and abroad. and hold meetings in a foreign country. Now Ayan Ali will also join them Shame on you Mr Zardari Bhotto or Bhoto Zardari you are one and same having same bloodRecommend

    Hope, the establishment is not duped by these cosmetic changes. All corruption roads leads to Bilal House that’s where the nexus is. Two A grade listees are comfortably seated in Dubai. Brother and sister are currently immuned .Recommend
