If you've ever wondered what the quintessential PML-N supporter + sympathizer group is like, then look no further. Thanks to Shahid Saeed's youtubing skills, the City 042 clip below shows a slaughterhouse auction being conducted by the district authorities (DCO Ahad Cheema and co.), with a bunch of thekedars (contractors) in attendance.
Watch the video and listen to some of the auction rates being quoted by the news report. I know this sounds incredibly judgmental but a lot of people never associate this kind of money with a rather desi looking bunch like the one in the video. But the truth is, this is why the services sector now stands at 52 percent of total GDP.
If one individual is willing to pay 3 crore for a slaughterhouse contract, just imagine the kind of donations his political party of choice would get to make that process a bit easier
On a side note, City 42 is an amazing channel, and perhaps the best thing to come out of an expanded media sphere. It actually deals with local municipal issues, gives coverage to implementors and policy-makers at the grassroots level, and engenders a coherent relationship between the citizen and his/her city.
