  1. I support Dr Waheed's government, but I don't like this. Too many state ministers! Why? Do we really need them? This looks more like a Anni style move. He had tens of state ministers. In a small country like us, if everyone has to be a minister then who would actually work in the government. Please think about this and stop distributing state minister positions like rashion in Africa.
