Today is the day when the five-year term of President Asif Ali Zardari has come to an end (writing this blog in the evening).
See the today’s newspapers. I guess almost in every paper there is a full-page ad. I saw 4 newspapers: Jang, Express, The News, The Express Tribune. The ad has been given by the Sindh Government, where Peoples Party is the ruling party.
In the ad with a photo of Asif Ali Zardari is printed:
I translate: “The trustee / preserver of democratic traditions”
Then the “achievements and the accomplishments” of this “trustee / preserver” has been counted.
In the end is printed:
Sharjeel Inaam Memon
Minister for Information and Archives, Commerce and Industries
Government of Sindh
Obviously, Sharjeel Memon did not pay for these ads eulogizing his mentor. Nor the Peoples Party! This was done at the cost of taxpayers of the Sindh province.
I think there is no moral justification for such acts.
This is Political Parasitism, and is like grabbing free lunches. Indeed, Pakistani politicians are but Political Parasites, living and thriving at the cost of their voters and citizens!
