Lahore, Feb 12 (www.pakdestiny.com) President Asif Ali Zardari has lowered his status by ‘building’ a palatial residence in Bahria Town owned by ‘controversial’ property tycoon Malik Riaz.
Though there are reports that Riaz has gifted about 200 kanal-house to Zardari but the major question is as why he (Zardari) in the capacity of the President of Pakistan ‘got or made’ a house in the housing scheme of a businessmen.
“For a president or premier of a country Riaz like businessmen are quite many in numbers. Now it appears Riaz is stronger than even the president of Pakistan, ”a PPP politician comments.
“By doing so Zardari has again shown that he does not care about his reputation. What matters more for him is a ‘huge house’. If it is not a gift then why Zardari did not choose some other place to build his house in Lahore? Perhaps Zardari and other PPP leadership have no answer to it.” – Pak Destiny
