  1. Like big corrupt politicians including Nawaz Sharif, Zardari, etc, Chirali political gang leaders also have concealed their assets which are open to our eyes. All political lords get their properties registered in the names of their sons, wives, daughters, and even servants and keep almost nothing in their own names. Actually, the system of assets declaration is full of flaws and a way to fool the masses. Where is the column for payment of taxes, how much tax these corrupt politicians have paid. A few years back, Nawaz Sharif paid only 5000 rupees income tax, so whatever our MPAs and MNA have come up with the details of their wealth is nothing to be surprised over.
