  • Corruption has influenced whole country, worst it nailed down Sindh in such a way that highest tax payer is yet in the list of least livable cities on Earth. So much shame for PPP Govt and its supporters who will continue their support until their last breath and never give a damn to any such figures. These supporters require safe heaven for their own corruption which is thoroughly supported by PPP from lower to highest level possible. They do it officially and openly in all Govt departments every Pakistani has witnessed.
