In a recent interview with Jahan Numa, Ex-Chief Minister Gilgit-Baltistan Syed Mehdi Shah responded to some tough questions regarding his education and political career.
He has often come under fire for his low qualification, but in a discussion with the youth-initiated YouTube channel, he replied to many of these criticisms that surface of social media from time to time.
Syed Mehdi Shah insisted that education is not necessary for becoming a good politician and that the world has seen many leaders who had nothing to show in terms of degrees.
The experienced politician conceded that he is only a college major, still he refused many key positions during his youth because his mother desired him to follow a different career path.
Syed Mehdi Shah is known for his firm loyalty to Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), and once again he heaped praises on his party for bringing huge developments in the region.
In fact he even claimed that his government did all the hard work and laid the foundation that greatly helped the subsequent government of Hafiz Hafeezur Rehman, the second Chief Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan.
The Balti political leader got a little fired up when asked whether his properties increased after he gained the coveted position of chief minister.
He claimed that he had always been affluent and repeatedly mentioned owning 140 shops along with other pricey establishments.
