The richest with eighty-six government vehicles, and the richest in Pakistan with one and a half million government vehicles

The richest with eighty-six government vehicles, and the richest in Pakistan with one and a half million government vehicles

There is only one country in the world whose 1.5 million government vehicles do not run on fuel but run on the blood of poor people.

So says renowned author Naeem Sadiq, who belongs to the health and safety profession and also writes and advocates on social issues.

Naeem Sadiq has one of his own Post I drew a map of today’s Pakistan.

Today, he wrote, Pakistan is ‘politically and financially bankrupt, barely teetering on the brink of destruction, openly begging the world for a pittance, but its gluttonous, bribe-taking, and lascivious elites cannot afford any luxury. Not ready to leave.’

Naeem Sadiq writes that, in the country, ‘the scale of looting and abuse (of power) is staggering.’

He said that, “20 percent of all the vehicles that visited the northern region for tourism and holidays this season were government vehicles with green number plates.”

According to him, ‘anyone who looks closely will find the same ratio (of vehicles) in shopping malls, parks and restaurants.’

Naeem Sadiq explains that, ‘Six government vehicles have been parked in a small street of DHA for the last 12 years, which are being (wrongly) used by the family, friends and staff of an MLA from Sindh. are.’

“It goes without saying that the fuel, maintenance and drivers (of these vehicles) are paid for by the poor people of Pakistan.”

Naeem Sadiq says, ‘Britain, which ruled us for 200 years, has 86 official vehicles, none of which are allocated to any individual, all are kept in a central pool. ‘

He tried to find out the number of these vehicles from the British government under the Right to Information Act and surprisingly this information was also provided to him.

“A (British) minister or bureaucrat explains the purpose of the visit, signs an application, uses the vehicle and finally signs again for the distance and cost,” he said.

In contrast, Naeem Sadiq described the case of Pakistan, where ‘on February 27, 2023, the Pakistani government shamelessly revealed in the National Assembly its insane act of buying new vehicles worth over Rs 57 million.’

‘Which were apparently to be bought for “foreign guests”.’

“In December 2022, the government of Azad Jammu and Kashmir confirmed the purchase of 152 vehicles for its bureaucrats and judiciary at a cost of Rs 872 million,” he added.

“In September 2022, the Punjab government approved 40 new vehicles (costing Rs 300 million) for its cabinet members.”

Not to be outdone, in October 2022 the Lahore High Court purchased 308 new cars (at a cost of Rs 500 million) for its judicial officers.

In response to a question in the National Assembly session held on February 27, it was informed that the present government has purchased a total of eight vehicles at a cost of over Rs 57.3 million.

The Secretary Cabinet Division to the National Assembly approved the purchase of vehicles after the approval of the Finance Division.

These eight vehicles were purchased for “protocol duty” use.

These vehicles include a 29-seater Toyota EIP coaster, a 14-seater Toyota high-roof van and six 1800 cc Toyota Corolla cars.

Naeem Sadiq perhaps sarcastically asked, ‘Do the people of Pakistan know that in the last six months alone, apart from the already existing one and a half lakh vehicles, the government has spent an additional Rs 1.729 billion for the pleasure and luxury of its already spoiled people? Buy cars?’

At the same time, he clarified that it is not only corruption. It is an abuse of an already sinking nation at the hands of its own ruling class.’

Naeem Sadiq raised the question, ‘Will the people of Pakistan stand up and unanimously demand the end of this shamelessness?’

On the other hand, Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif till June 2024 Prohibition on purchase of all types of new vehicles As has been imposed, all luxury vehicles will be auctioned as before and one vehicle will be given to ministers where required. However, it does not appear to be implemented at present.

Dawn News In an article written for , he wrote, ‘In the desperate need for austerity, we must consider the savings that can be made by withdrawing just one facility, government vehicles.’

“Assuming that each vehicle uses 200 liters of fuel per month, withdrawing all government vehicles would mean an immediate saving of 30 million liters of fuel per month,” he wrote. That means $22 million a month in fuel imports, or $264 million a year in savings.

‘Why is the government not adopting this and many other similar cost-saving schemes? This is because rich people don’t like to lose their luxuries at all and common citizens keep their mouth shut despite seeing all this. It is time for patriotic people to raise their voice.’

He proposed that, ‘every government vehicle be repossessed, sold and every sanitation worker and every private security guard in Pakistan earning the minimum legal wage be paid this amount.’

In the end, Naeem Sadiq hoped that ‘that day will come, Pakistan will change forever.’
