Zardari shower awards at 'Worst Performers'

President Asif Ali Zardari has announced awards for hundred and eighty five people for their worst performances in different fields. The most dishonored person is Interior Minister Rehman Malik, who has topped the list of worst performers.

The award-giving ceremony will be held on March 23, 2012 in Islamabad. The nominees for Nishan-e-Imtiaz (The highest civil-award) are:
  • Interior Minister Rehman Malik (From PPP)
  • Chairman Senate Farooq H Naik (From PPP)
  • Speaker National Assembly Dr. Fehmida Mirza (From PPP)
  • President's Secretary General Salman Farooqi (From PPP)
  • Slain Punjab Governor Salman Taseer (From PPP)

While the nominees for Sitara-e-Imtiaz are:
  • MNA Khushbakht Shujaat (From MQM)
  • Anchor Person Mubashir Luqman (From PML-Q)
  • Former Advisor to Chief Minister of Sindh Sharmeela Farooqi (From PPP)
  • Cabinet Secretary (Former Principal Secretary to PM) Nargis Sethi (From PPP)

And the nominees for Hilal-e-Imtiaz are:
  • Mian Amir Mehmood (From PML-Q)
  • Chairperson Benazir Income Support Program Farzana Raja (From PPP)
  • Ambassador to US Hussain Huqqani (From PPP)
  • Chairman Zakat and Usher Committee Zamurad Khan (From PPP)
  • President's Spokesman Farhatullah Babar (From PPP)

Last year President Zardari showered his blessings on his die-hard comrades like Former Law Minister Dr. Babar Awan, Minister for Inter-Provincial Harmony Mian Raza Rabbani, Privatization Minister Syed Naveed Qamar and Miniter for Water and Power Raja Pervaiz Ashraf.

However, it seems Mr. President needs to review the current list, because people like Faisal Raza Abidi, Dr. Zulfiqar Mirza, Pir Mazhar ul Haq, Wajid Shams-ul-Hassan, Dr. Asim Hussain and Dr. Firdos Ashiq Awan deserve a nomination.
