If ever by chance we were to compete with India on the issue of foreign tours by their PMs and Presidents, our VVIPS would surely beat them hollow. The total duration of stay out of country of the Indian PM or President during the last five years should be less than that of our President in the last two months. Another field in which we are sure to beat the Indians is the total allocation of funds for maintaining our respective Presidencies or the PM Houses. This is not all. The fleet of limousines and private jets detailed for use of our President and PM would be many times more than those for their counterparts in India. -NASIR K.
