We have now entered the era of billions. The age of millions is dead and gone. See how Hamesh Khan squandered billions and escaped. The defalcation and pilferage of public funds is always in billions now. The loss to the economy runs in hundreds of billions. This is all growth and progress. Hats off to the PPP regime; they have always brought innovations in our system. -AMJAD HABIB MIRZA, Lahore, October 21.
