In a move widely criticised at messes across merge nation, the federal government has slated for around half of the entire federal budget to be given to the civilians for their supposed needs.
”I guess we know who runs this country, then,” said a source in the ministry of defence, on the condition of slipping him a thousand rupee note. “I guess the non-non-representative forces still hold sway.”
”The greed of the civilian-industrial complex will continue, unabated,” he added, upon further payment.
Analysts are already cautioning the civilian government that such proportions of non-defence expenditure are unsustainable.
”Yes, they are,” said Islamabad-based analyst Mosharraf Zaidi. “It is a shameful for a nation to be spending as much on education (all provinces combined) as on defence.”
