In an unusual midnight speech after the first budget of his cash-strapped government was presented, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said that all economic problem was due to debt which increased to Rs 30 lakh crore from Rs 6 lakh crore in 10 years.
According to the NAB officials, Pakistan’s former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister made transactions of Rs 150 million, through alleged fake bank accounts.
The case against Asif Ali Zardari pertains to the use of alleged fake bank accounts to keep money and transferring it out of Pakistan.
In contrast to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's net income drop, the income of opposition leader in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif continued to see an upward trend as his net income.
Nawaz Sharif's PML-N with 64 and Asif Ali Zardari's PPP with 43 seats are placed at number two and three respectively.
Zardari, 62, said Nawaz and Shahbaz plotted his murder when he was serving his eight-year-long sentence in corruption cases.
Mr Zardari’s invitation to the PM to visit the Sikh holy shrines in and around Lahore in November coinciding with the birth anniversary of Guru Nanakdev is apparently made in good faith, but it could prove to be counter-productive
While the analysts of the Pakistani political scene have focussed on the institutional confrontation between the Executive and the Judiciary, they have overlooked the personal confrontation between the Chief Justice and Mr Zardari
Zardari combined his visit for the SCO summit with a bilateral visit for talks with Chinese leaders and businessmen on bilateral relations.
Manmohan Singh has accepted Zardari's invitation to visit Islamabad. But what should the two sides talk about? Here are those on which progress is both necessary and, more importantly, possible.
After the understandable caution over President Asif Ali Zardari's visit, it is time for an informal visit by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Islamabad without linking it to any solution to any of the contentious issues.
What we need in Indo-Pakistani relations is not the big and spectacular, but the small and significant.
While reacting positively to Mr Zardari’s planned pilgrimage to Ajmer, one has to note with concern indications of a further strengthening of Pakistan’s relations with China
Is there a likelihood of a coup? If not, is there a fall-back position available to Kayani to save face? Is there any political and honourable way out of the current impasse?
Will Zardari manage to salvage his position and continue in power or will he quit on medical grounds after having inducted his son as the President?
By failing to act against Hussain Haqqani and by trying to cover up the matter, Zardari would be further damaging his credibility in the eyes of not only his Army, but also large sections of the Pakistani public.
Three years after the assassination of Benazir, the conspiracy to have her killed has been followed by a fresh conspiracy to prevent the real facts of the case from coming out.
The UN report has not only blamed the previous government of Gen. Musharraf for failing to provide effective security to her but has also condemned the Pakistani intelligence agencies for preventing an effective investigation
