"Zardari and Nawaz met at Raiwind Farm" is the biggest news in the country these days. They meet as they had a long time ago, had dinner, discussed the 17th amendment and agreed to continue their deliberations on this vital issue. Is that progress? Well, it is if they have finally gone through the text of 17th amendment. Millions from the public exchequer has gone down the drain arranging for this VVIP visit and look what we have as an outcome? They have agreed to meet again. This is a joke being played on the starving public that is being grilled by loadshedding, taxed, cheated, defrauded and raped in broad daylight. This is so unacceptable. -AMJAD HABIB MIRZA, Lahore, via e-mail, July 18.
