Chief Minister (5k+ posts)
Our past politicians had no qualms while taking favors from the same generals to kick start their political careers.....why the sudden hatred? Is it because that support has vanished? I know PMLN is still looking for a behind-the-scenes deal, so maybe a lack of a deal is what is keeping them on their toes.Yeah at no cost should Pak Foj be demoralised from running all the business ventures and housing societies that they are running. As for their real job of fighting the enemy, they are already making songs and Videos to perform that duty.
Pakistan is becoming North Korea.
As for the role of the armed forces, it is no secret that Pakistan has an unfriendly border on the east. It takes more than a few million to keep it in check. That, combined with the welfare of its forces and retirees is what pushes the armed forces into business ventures. If you feel our debt laden govts can foot the bills for that, then theres no reason why there would be military business ventures.
And more importantly, can you guide me to any civilian institution that takes care of its veterans, retirees, and serving cadres the way armed forces do?
