“The military installations which were targeted were properties of the state of Pakistan and I believe we should avoid such incidents,” Buzdar said.

People who attacked, supported the attack, instigated the attack on military installations should voluntarily surrender to police or else consequences would be dire.

Not a loser he minted billions during his stint as CM Punjab. Now time to enjoy the booty. Just a look at his face shows his shallowness. What a pity. Our current system churns out such pitiful so called politicians.
