It’s was so good to know that our humble and honest prime minister has imposed a ban on ‘official iftar parties.’ This act will be good for our national treasury. People will claim Nawaz Sharif as a great leader, who has been relentlessly working in the best interest of the nation. I would like to suggest that the upcoming Independence Day celebrations should be cancelled as we have not progressed to the that level where we can spend on Independence Celebrations while millions go hungry, have no clean water, are dying in Thar! These celebrations from the state expense could be diverted to help the IDP’s. The nation will make statues of Nawaz Sharif and write poems about his statesman ship, if for once, he arranges the expense of such celebration from his own personal wealth!

KHALID MUSTAFA,
