Islamabad, December 27: When it comes to wastage of public money, the PPP ministers in Gilgit – Baltistan seem to be above all legal and moral standards. At one hand they are crying for lack of funds for rehabilitation of the flood affectees while on the other hand they are paying millions of rupees in advertisement costs to newspaper owners.
The reckless attitude of arrogant, self-eulogizing, Jiyala ministers once again came to the fore on the current death anniversary of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto. Full page, four colour, advertisement with not-so-nice-looking, popping, faces of the ministers look down at the flood affectees who are living in misery at relief camps in sub-zero temperatures.
This wastage of resources needs to be investigated by the law authorities to ensure that no petty minister is again able to attempt to get false glory at the cost of public.
