Words and action don’t match

Updated August 31, 2013

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.
