A great person, with a clear vision. Someone who immensely contributed in the economy of the country. During his tenure Telecom got a new vision and it was because of his efforts that seamless privatisation of PTCL was done which earned tremendous revenue to the country. He believed in Team work and managed to get best of the best brains work for him.

ایمل کانسی کو امریکہ کے حوالے کر کے پیسےکمانے والے اور اس کے بدلے پوری پاکستانی قوم کو امریکیوں سے گالی دلوانے والے بے غیرت لوگ۔ کراچی اسٹیل ملز کو ھڑپ کرنے کا منصوبہ بنانے والے بے شرم لوگ۔ چیف جسٹس کا اس کیس پر نوٹس لینے پر اسے اس کے منصب سے محروم کرنے والوں قوم پہچان لے-

You guys are swearing at Leghari family, if you guys are so good, or if your family is so much worried about Pakistan then why the ***** most of you are sitting outside Pakistan why don't u come and join Pakistan, or why don't you help those peasants.Man live in reality don't go after media, those peasant give vote to Legharis and it means they are happy, coz u cant force more then 80000 people to vote for guyz knw shit about reality.and who said they started selling Pakistanis to America, u must be talking about Amal Kansi, it was nawaz shareef who allowed USA to arrest Amal kansi, i guess u haven't seen Amal Kansi's last interview. Compare to others leghari's are lot better.How could u compare zardari with leghari
