Can you believe this??

I was reading today’s The News and found this unbelievable story. The Election Commission declaration bound members of the National Assembly to declare not only their own assets but also the assets of their spouses and dependent children. And guess what, more than 100 MNA’s including ministers and party heads do not have a conveyance of their own. Now this is a good one :).

Their declaration of assets as notified by the Election Commission exposes the financial strength, if one tends to believe their returns, of the Chaudhrys, Soomros, Pirs, Gilanis, Qureshis, Sardars, Mirs, Achakzais, Rajas, Fatianas, Nakais, Wattos, Mengals and many others of the country’s elite.

It really looks unbelievable when the likes of Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali, Rao Sikandar Iqbal, Humayun Akhtar Khan, Aftab Ahmad Sherpao, Faisal Saleh Hayat, Muhammad Nasir Khan, Ejaz-ul-Haq, Raza Hayat Hiraj declare “solemnly” that they don’t have a car to drive.

Qazi Hussain Ahmad and Maulana Fazlur Rehman also say that they don’t own any car. Amongst the women MPs, besides several others, Dr Attiya Inayatullah and Kashmala Tariq have also declared to have no vehicle.

You can read the full story and names of ALL the clowns here.

    I just saw the link…
    this news article deserves to be the joke of the year!!!

    i guess with the calling in of assets of spouses and dependant children, they’ll start using brothers’ and sisters’ cars and homes..

    These people have billions in assets and nothing to their name? strange!

    I guess once Nadras’ database gets integrated, all they’ll have to do is get a copy of the NIC…and that’ll take care of all the statements and declarations….
