  1. Just meetings meetings and meetings what is the out come of these meetings? Nothing and if by chance they get any amount it will b spend on Prados Land cruisers and on lavish parties.The sufferings of COMMAN MAN will continue.

  2. Now that only few weeks are left for the completion of current government’s tenure and Mr. Hafeez Sheikh will not even be able to prepare the upcoming budget, the promises of finance minister are too late and mere a rhetoric that badly offends the political sentiments people of GB.

    The poor and helpless chaps (GB governor and CM) should have given the issue of representation of GB in NFC award their top priority when they came into their office years ago. Now they are so late. This shows how well they performed and how effective they have been to stand for the matters of key importance to the people of GB.

    Empty promises will never satisfy the people of the region. The people of GB elect their representatives so that they will push their cause for the demand of legitimate rights; political, constitutional and financial from the aloof leaders of Pakistan. The representatives of people of GB cannot afford to be idiots as we are seeing as the price of such political sluggishness will be too high.
