Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has released discretionary funds in the name of development schemes at an unprecedented pace: Rs2.891 billion in the first three months compared to just Rs200 million in the same period of the last financial year, registering an increase of 1,345.50 percent. Ever heard the idiom "make hay while the sun shines".
