A disease called 'honesty'

Friday, September 11, 2009

According to a news item, the PCB chairman does not avail most of the privileges extended to him. It seems that he is in fact spending his own money rather than asking the PCB for rent, car, domestic servants, utility bills, etc. I estimate that he's losing at least Rs250,000 every month in this manner. The question is: why is this un-Pakistani behaviour being tolerated?

If the PCB chief is really as honest as the news item suggests, there's no telling what will happen if more people are infected by this disease called 'honesty'!
