    where are the high claims that nobody will use expensive cars ? where is CULTUS ???

  4. I find this blog post a strange/populist decision by Pakwheels editorial staff, I mean you mention PM House vehicle auction very casually or any scrutiny (that PM is drumming from the day of his oath till now) while having a separate piece on LHC request for funds, in my opinion its not worthy of having separate piece here, so not worth commenting either...

    Selling off government assets like vehicles is usually not a good option. The next government whichever it is will buy all new luxury vehicles and incur even greater expenses. It would be best to ban new purchase of luxury vehicles and keep using the ones already held.
