    I seriously despise one quality of PMIK, He has this “Nazren” on expats pockets. Like are expats his naukars or what ? Those in Pakistan, trust me you won’t find richer people outside as compared to what is inside Pakistan. And yet he doesn’t take back the billions of dollars from the mafias but “Baher ke Pakistanis, Paise bhejen, Hamein zarurat hai”.

    Realistically speaking, He has laid his bets mostly on seeking helps.

    Before he came to power, one of his statement was cringy and since then i have this POV of him.

    “Jo mulk sadqa khairat mein itne agay hai wo tax bhi to ziada de sakti hai”

    Matlab ab logon ki jaibon par nazar dalrahe ho, Sadqa khairat chor kar tax den takay tumharay nangay bhokay chor bureaucrats apni properties banaen usse aur ghareebon tak phir nahi sadqa pohanche nahi tax.

    WAAH WAAH

    And then, This same PM, or all others in the past as well, but him specifically since he has eyes on expats pockets specifically, Overseas people invest in properties, Those being developed currently, They mostly get scammed because “Maazi mein to rishwat dekar departments ne lease dedi thi lekin ab Supreme court ko Allah ne jaga dia hai aur SC ne properties illegal qarar dedi hain, And then this same Hypocrite PM is nowhere’s to be found. All of his good and goodwills aside, i am raising this genuine problem.

    People invested in DHA Islamabad, Bahria Pindi, Karachi, Islamabad, Gwadar, Punjab, mostly got scammed because there is no department which is responsible to bring a “VERIFICATION LETTER BY SC that the property is legal and leased and that SC will never interfere in it”.

    Lekin kon samjhaen inhen...

    Pakistani plz arrange merchandises of necessity and distribute by your own hand, I hate to say this but don't give them a single penny unless an until our elite buy tea and snacks form their own pockets------

    I would like to address each of the concern but in it's own time. However just 1 thing i will say is that, sparing 50$ is not much of a burden on any Overseas Pakistan, 50$ in today's time is 8200rs in Pakistam you can provide basic necessities & ration for two families in that. Am sure O.P can manage to donate 50$
    It may come harsh but i have seen people collecting donations in the name of religion & ethnicity without even giving a thought that where that money might end up at. In UK, every convenience store you walk into will have charity boxes all lined up, people will come in drop in pennies, pounds & walkaway. No second thought given. For all we know is that the donations end up in building someone's house in Dhadyal, Mirpur.

    It is very unfortunate that am no longer in contact with those people but I have even scene people collecting donations in the name of Baloch insurgents & people are donating to them. So why can't O.P donate in the name of country?

    The concerns you have shared above are genuine but even in those many were at faultl themselves. They invested in real estate for all wrong reasons.....

    Everyone just take care of the poor people in your locality and back at village. It would do just fine.

    Actually I didn’t discourage the donation, I and my circles, We have done good in this but lets just not discuss that.

    Point was a but different, i feel that it doesn’t belong to this thread. But i just feel like PMIK doesn’t appreciate those working very hard overseas rather sees them as assets generating revenue as remittances, nothing more.

    If he has the balls to address overseas Pakistanis specifically, He should also open up with special relaxations and facilities for overseas Pakistanis, But he doesn’t believe in paying them back in other good ways...

    Yes,

    Problem is that government doesn’t distribute especially sindh gov, and as for others, They don’t identify genuine people in need, Choti soch walay log accept the donations, bring in all the 10-20 members of their family, sell that.

    Genuine needy people are left helpless

    I bet their's a 90% chance of the money donated going to be wasted in catering the exquisitely aesthetic and gourmet tastes of our elite specifically the "honorable Civil service" which is no where to be seen during this crisis except some rankers putting their lives at stake for all day - - - - - - - - - - salute Mar k vapis.
