Ministers of Pakistan or Sons of the King

Our country is unfortunately slipping down in the deep ditch of unemployment, poverty, extremely pathetic medical facilities, unimaginably low literacy rate and above all facing the growing menace of terrorism. The compound impact of these problems is blowing the nerves of every Pakistani. Completely locked in mental tension due to ugly situation around us, seeing towards our Government shows that our President, Prime Minister and his unlimited Cabinet is quite happy about the situation. The ruling party and toothless opposition of Sharif Brothers is laughing at our helplessness because they have not missed a single opportunity to make money even in these testing conditions and we are not coming out of the trap of these politicians. .

Electricity Crisis, Wheat Crisis, Sugar Crisis, Petrol Crisis, Gas Crisis, Law and Order crisis and the list goes on. You can see crisis situation is strongly ruling our intellects. People of Pakistan are unable to understand that what our Government is doing and why it has not been able to control the deteriorating situation of the country. Not many got answer to this but because of most of our population is kept deliberately illiterate by our sincere leaders just to facilitate themselves in maneuvering the minds of ignorant people to the direction of their choice. Only 25% of educated Pakistanis know about the fact but they cannot convince the masses to observe and judge the performance of their leaders.

I have come to know about some shocking revelations related to our Ministers and their extensive spending from State’s Treasury. The money which they spend is the tax money which our Government takes from our valuable earnings against their liability to provide us basic necessities of life including the maintenance of Law & Order in the country. But we should know that why these Ministers would think about the safety of common people because their security convoys are growing day by day? Why would they think about us when they can block us for hours in traffic jams due to VIP movement and due to this act of barbarism many innocent people die in the ambulances? Well it is hard to understand about the mental level of our leaders who are not only sucking our blood like parasites but are also taking huge bribes from our enemies to push Pakistan to the edge of the ditch.

I would like everybody to know about the shameful acts of our Ministers who do not think us the people as human. They don’t care how responsible they should be in spending our tax money!! They don’t even care about what is their responsibility as the members of the government and its cabinet. We see pathetic condition in hospitals, sorry conditions of the Police Stations and the residential facilities of poor Policemen. The lives of our innocent people are at stake but the convoys of our death fearing leaders are increasing every day.

I just want all the people to look into the reality by reading the following shocking disclosures.

First let us know that who is in the Cabinet of the Kingdom’s Ministry!!

Following are eye opening and shocking revelations about our Ministers barbaric personal expenditures.

Source: Analysis by “Mr. Farrukh Saleem”

How much does a minister cost? Well, there’s the salary and then there are allowances, financial benefits, rights, privileges and concessions. There are ‘Equipment Allowances’, travelling expenses for the minister and his family, cost of transporting personal servants, cost of transporting house-hold effects, sumptuary allowances, a furnished residence, travelling allowances for touring in Pakistan, Business Class air fare for minister and his wife, travelling allowances for tours abroad, First Class air fare, unlimited medical allowances and reimbursements, police escorts, fuel expenses, security, personal staff, office staff, utilities, entertainment allowances, entitlements of staff and telephone allowances.

Amazingly, the Auditor General of
Pakistan got hold of a medical bill submitted by a JUI-F male MNA that sought reimbursement for a pregnancy test. A federal minister for health, for instance, was found using a Toyota Land Cruiser from the National Institute of Health, a five-door Prado from the Expanded Programme for Immunisation, a double cabin 4X4 from the Global Alliance for Vaccine & Immunisation and a Suzuki car from the PIMS (July 2005 to June 2007).

To be certain, only some of the above allowances, privileges and concessions are regulated under ‘The Members of Parliament (Salaries and Allowances) (Amendment) Act, 2005 (Act No V of 2005)’. To be sure, most of what is spent by a minister, his family and his relatives is extracted out of a whole host of projects that are under the administrative control of the respective minister’s ministry (that’s where Prados, double cabins and Land Cruisers come from).

Based on the current strength of the federal cabinet, all the ambassadors-at-large, advisers and others with the status of a minister, their accumulated spending in the following 12 months will not be less than Rs 500 crore; Rs 500 crore that we must beg and then spend. That translates into an average of Rs 6 crore per minister per year. The poorest of all countries, the richest of all ministers.

Just look at
Islamabad’s priorities: Rs 6 crore per minister per year; Rs 144 per Pakistani per year for health; and Rs 145 per Pakistani per year for education. What’s the solution? Monetise all allowances, financial benefits, rights, privileges and concessions.

Intriguingly, this was only the second cabinet expansion. There are certainly going to be more. Remember, all these ministers and individuals with the rank of a minister are for the Islamabad Capital Territory, which is 1,165 square km and of which the Islamabad city covers an area of 906 square km (or 350 square miles). In
Lahore, the government of Punjab runs 80 departments and 29 autonomous bodies. The government of the NWFP has 53 ministers and the government of Sindh has 41. The last time I checked, Balochistan, the poorest of all our provinces, had 41 ministers.

After knowing the above reality, can we say that our leaders are worth to be followed and trusted??? I think they are the vultures and they are here only to loot and run.

Pakistan is reaching pathetically low sustainability level, but seeing the irresponsible attitude of our Leaders, we can well understand that somewhere back in their minds they are happy with their looting and taking that as a final opportunity before the curtain drops..
