ISLAMABAD: Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has issued an outlandish story comprising the extraordinary and astonishing assets declaration with overtones of embezzlements and corruptions.
Though the rulers lavish extravagantly; but, their heaps of money keep on piling up, as Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani’s assets accelerated from Rs. 5.6 million to 250 million rupees.
Despite this huge pool of cash, the PM Gilani told the ECP that he does not own a single vehicle. But, he can borrow some cash from his son Abdul Qadir Gilani, whose assets burgeoned to Rs. 56.3 million.
Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Chief Maualan Fazlur Rehman’s meek reservoir contains only Rs.5 million. He could not buy a car for personal use.
Meantime, PML-N leader and Leader of the Opposition in the NA Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan pushed his bank balance up by Rs. 7.3 million.
Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, who treaded around the corridors of power several times, could amass assets worth only Rs. 127 million; but, his brilliant son Munis Elahi excelled the father with asset declaration worth Rs.310 million.
According to the ECP notification, Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif, who calls himself Khadim-e-Aala has only Rs. 210 million, his wife Nusrat Shahbaz with assets of Rs. 260 million and son Hamza Shahbaz boasts of asset treasure to the tune of 115 million rupees.
According to the report made public by the Election Commission, Noor Alam Khan of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) is the richest parliamentarian with Rs.32 billion with Jamshed Dasti standing at the extreme end as the poorest law-maker having no single penny to his credit. SAMAA
