Gilani’s income tax

I think the PM deserves to be congratulated for paying Rs82,000 as income tax this year. That’s really a lot of money. He could have used it to buy dinner for at least eighty people in one of those posh restaurants in Lahore (which are always filled to capacity). Or he could have spent this astronomical amount on buying designer clothes, of which he’s so fond. Thank you, Mr Prime Minister, for contributing so much to the national exchequer. Very few politicians have the vision to do what you did.
