Chushki, that's the best that BSP can come up with. The same old rehashed misguided lying cheating crooks that cannot tell the truth if their life depended on it.

Bravo BSP!

Is this the same ex-Finance Minister who lied when he left office about the size of the fiscal reserve, omitting to tell anyone that several huge overdue debts had not been paid, and a number of large contracts had been signed committing the country to several billions worth of expenditure?

And is this the same ex-Finance Minister who made such radical changes to the National Revenue Agency that the level of collection of tax revenue slumped to an all time low and was linked (by his own colleagues) to corruption and mismanagement of the Customs Agency throughout his time in office?
