Chitral:? After the declaration of assets by candidates for the National and Provincial Assemblies been made public, there is no doubt left that we are a nation of liars. Hefty political personalities whose single political meetings cost millions of rupees have showed their total assets miserable, fit enough to be pitied.
Politicians who travel in vehicles worth several million have shown themselves to be totally worth a few million rupees only. Bungalows in Islamabad worth a hundred million in open market have been declared as worth a few lacs. On the other extreme an unassuming candidate from Muzaffargarh has declared himself to be worth over 400 billion rupees. Exaggeration both ways, telling lies in both cases.
Now that elections are at the doorstep and we have to elect our new representatives to rule Pakistan from amongst these very people who are candidates and who have lied about their assets. What better can we expect from them when they are in power and authority. It will be a case of ‘A nation of liars ruled by liars’ over and over again. .. CN report, 25 Jun 2018
