Literally scratching my head on how a head of state can travel to US on 67k usd? You take a entourage in a full flight. Pay for suites for you and officers. Meet people. Conference rooms, food, fuel etc and security.

Even trip to UNGA is understandable. If I am right, he went on Saudi flight for free.

By staying at the embassy instead of a hotel.

PIA owned the Roosevelt Hotel at which the PM and his team stayed. Nawaz Sharif stayed at the Waldorf Astoria on 50th and Park Avenue, one of the most expensive hotels in New York.

He did travel on a Saudi Plane. He should have at least flown on a PIA flight. Hopefully by the end of his tenure PIA will be resurrected to its glory days, and the PM will fly on PIA planes to any and all global summits. The scare over the malfunction in the Saudi plane should remind the government to not be penny wise and dollar foolish. The lives of our leaders, should be protected in our own vehicles as other major nations do. The sentiment to save money was much appreciated, but safety is of paramount importance.

Yes, and this traitor is on record saying 'I was hosted by my friends' on his trip to America. Let us compare with a civilized and dignified society. The NSW premier Barry O'Farrell resigned because somebody dug out a thank you note written by him for a $3000/- bottle of wine that was gifted to him.

The current NSW premier had to admit that she had a 'close person relationship' with someone who himself had to resign because of corruption. Just because of this, a no confidence vote was held against her.

This is how law abiding societies work. No civilized, educated, and dignified person would respect this traitor Imran Khan who is openly related to corrupt politicians.

Being hosted by friends doesnt mean everything is free jahil insan bugz se itna b pagal na ho jaye banda..

Secondly baaki bh*sriwale kaha rehe they ?


Most ironic thing is that you are using his relationship with "corrupt" politicians to justify your point but those who came before him atleast 3 previous ones were corrupt themselves..

your statement seems purely political. when your are biased better refrain. politics is dirty, it bring things out of a person no matter what and how we build on our character.

Damn... Zardari spent more than a million on US trip... Khan did all of that at 1/10th the cost.

Food and fuel are never the major expenses.

It is the security and place of stay that makes up the bulk of cost.

He stayed in Embassy and rode on a free private jet of KSA. So no fuel or staying cost.

One must applaud him for cutting on the costs and being reflective of where he is coming from ...

Besides , even if you spend millions of dollars on such trip , people know where you are coming from and its all a show off which isn't really required.

above is the statement given by yourself is based on your hard and fast rules about Pakistaniat.
interesting thing is i agree to your OP in that thread.

Pakistaniat by definition is wrong (that need to elaborate) and then story proceed during those 73 years bring it to a next level where people tried to survive with it, fooled by that word and they only did this "try to survive" and i do not set aside any class out of it either the masses or the elite or those fall in between.

there is nothing new in op of yours in that thread. the new is only when there is something comes out to make a difference. but it wont happen because we talk and conclude that we are incapacitated beyond that thoughts we are hijacked, even if some have enough sanity to think beyond they can only think. and it seems upon this basis you declared the PM a traitor until you have some evidence to prove to which i do not disagree, given your criteria.

this Pakistaniat type thing is found in every nation and they are fooled by this, just look around. but our problem is in "are we a nation?" Pakistaniat or what else comes later.

otherwise questionable to me was that you cannot measure things like this upon hard and fast rules, this is not science that you apply rules and the result will always be same. for instance i would disagree with you if you judge me on your hard and fast rules and i will certainly argue.

so friend what you have said in that OP on the other thread has nothing to do with what i was saying.
you only make me think about your post (to which i replied) that you have a defined and declared thoughts and on the basis of those thought you judged and gave a statement. may be if you have evidences to prove about this man our current PM instead of that Pakistaniat thing i would have agreed.

there is one thing i would say and it is relevant:
Human are sent to this planet with a test for the life-after and not to spend it by performing obligations or performing duties. when it is a test then learning is must which leads to knowledge?

and knowledge do incredible things to a human soul, it opens a new world and dimensions.
but it never come from books or teacher. it is the master and you how you explore yourself and it is a process with no end and it never ends.

Knowledge silence the tongue which is the evil of the evils.
