He said people of Pakistan are not slave to be ruled by the dynasties of Sharifs, Bhuttos and Zardaris. He said time is ripe now to ditch the exploitive tactics of these political families.
Altaf Shakoor said that action should be taken against all big fish who have got offset huge bank loans. He said selling of precious national institutions for peanuts in the name of so-called privatization process should be probed. He said joint investigation teams should also be formed to see why the national institutions like PIA and Pakistan Steel Mills are running in losses and smaller private airlines and steel mills are running in huge profits.
He demanded to also probe into the matter of getting very costly foreign loans for unnecessary projects that have only increased the burden of huge foreign loans for this poor country and its people. He said the process of accountability should be further widened and more big fish be caught into its net.
He said the whole nation want to see the country free from the menace of corruption.
