    NAWAZ Sharif is rich but he is Puppet of Military and Maddrassa Mullah just like Zardari. Pakistan never saw democracy so their people have no idea what freedom means.

    Most of the properties, which are the tip of the iceberg, are massively undervalued. Rs. 100 Corer is even less than the collection of most expensive watches that the prime minister own! For instance, in his budget speech of 2013 to the parliament, Nawaz Sharif was seen wearing a $ 4.5 million LOUIS MOINET's METEORIS watch, that is valued at over 450 million PKR!

    Nawaz Sharif is replica of our Congress party so far corruption is concerned. But, why not? Why do people join politics? , in the Cons ution of politics corruption is their birth right. And, by the way, who is non corrupt in this field? Can one name it . And, also there is no word Like honesty in politics. Exceptionally there are 2-3 countries in world. But they are considered stupids in the eyes of these buggers. So. stop printing the news about corruption.
