Minister quits, retains cars
Iqbal Hadi Zaidi
Monday, July 16, 2012 - Some of you may not be with me simply because the caption is quite unusual and many not appeal to some of you if not all, but before I write any explanation on the above caption I will dare to pen that this is neither fiction nor my imagination but hard fact which I am going to prove in subsequent lines hence eventually you will neither hurl stones nor even curse me but agree with me. Just on 10th July, 2012 I read in our Tribune newspaper that Faisal Saleh Hayat who had been housing minister in the earlier cabinet still is using 12 official cars for self meaning by that during all 6 working days he uses one car during morning hours and another one during pm hours and hence he has very judiciously distributed all 12 cars on equal footing. It will be very much immoral on my part not to thank the former minister who has returned 6 official cars which were being used by his staff. Needless to mention had he been holding more important portfolio like minister of finance etc then he must be having at least 24 cars for his personal use and not just 12. Will anyone including President, Prime Minister or Deputy Prime Minister ask Faisal Saleh Hayat to return all 12 cars? Will someone quote any other country on the face of earth where a former minister enjoys alike? I very much doubt but what about you?
