‘Our next turn’

Updated Jul 14, 2013 09:41am

THIS refers to the article ‘Our next turn’ (July 7) by Cyril Almeida. It is always refreshing to contemplate on the not-so-hidden meaning of his message.

He seems to be saying watch out Nawaz Sharif. The people have not yet spoken.

When they do, they will hold to account for a million-dollar watch you wore at the oath-taking ceremony. They will hold Finance Minister Ishaq Dar to account for wearing the most expensive suit (bar none) when negotiating with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The profligate use of public funds will yet bring you to your knees.

Take care, Mr Prime Minister, take care.

The people have not yet spoken. When they do, it will bring down the curtain on your administration.

Why should Mr. Iqbal Ismail be so angry on the new civil administration at the Centre? Of course we need to object to the expensive suit of the Finance Minister Ishaq Dar. Really, the Prime Minister and his cabinet members must set an example in simple living and high thinking.

However, if the PM could bring the terrorists under control and make lives bearable for the Pakistani masses, he will have achieved a lot.
