Rulers flayed for destroying economy

 OKARA –  Despite the lapse of 70 years, the country has so far failed to establish a stable economy due to decades-long corruption by those who have been in power during the period.

It was stated by Awam Dost Group (ADG) Chairman Jaboka Muhammad Akbar Chaudhry during a public meeting here the other day. He flayed the present and past rulers of Pakistan for making properties abroad by looting the national exchequer. “Only stern punishment to the corrupt persons will help uproot the menace of corruption from the country,” he maintained. He said unnecessary loans from the IMF and the World Bank have collapsed the national economy.
