I have seen him talking on TV shows.I wonder how these PPP people lie cunningly.Even their faces are so cunning that anyone can make out easily what their character is. Face is the index of mind.People of Pakistan like to get rid of these Traitors and Internal enemies. Naveed Qamar is selling all Government properties in the name of privatization. I curse all those who are selling the nations wealth , integrity, dignity and power.

His voice quality does not match with his facial appearance therefore he should shorten and trim his mustache to look like a normal man.

plz take pity on Pakistan and Pakistanis. 1-2 dozens of Pakistanis are dying daily bcoz of this bloody war 'for' terror. 90% of people dying in drone attacks and operations done both by armed forces and Taliban are Pakistanis. Baluchistan is bleeding as well. put a healing hand on Baluchis.
