Words and action don’t match

Updated Aug 31, 2013 07:06am

EVERY politician claims that he would end the VIP culture for good. But when he comes into power, he follows in the footsteps of those preceding him.

A person from the lower middle class becomes a minister and he instantly becomes a different person. An obvious example is our ‘four-star general’ who has been accused of crimes against the state.

A commoner will be put in jail under miserable conditions but a VIP remains a VIP in jail too. It reminds me of the ex-chief minister of Balochistan who said a ‘degree is a degree’ even though it might be fake.
