You old man, how come you have awakened after four (4) years & announced lease & property rights to 1,417 goths. Also reminded big public that PPP Shaheed ZAB & Shaheed BB had promised to give Roti, Kapra aur Makan to the people, which never given. Lets see how much Votes PPP would get in coming Election? Also announced giving 17,000 plots to poor & deserving homeless people, which would be given if PPP come to Power during next Election!

This is just a drop in occasion. Take agriculture and fertile land which is thousand of acres each being occupied by big shots should also be snatched from them and given to haris to make a meaningful contribution otherwise it is just a deception and nothing else which is trade mark of PPP
