    Are you guys not ashamed of begging. Pakistan is a failed country and still you don’t change your attitude. The only future pakistan has is that of Syria and Iraq.

    All the nation is surprising how the new Prime Minister is begging in different countries including from IMF while he was of the view that he would prefer to make suicide instead of taking loan from IMF.
