Benazir was a female landmark, first female leader in a Muslim state, Harvard Grad, massive other accomplishments and we are all sad about her death. However, does that grant the government the right to spend tax payer money on a monument that will not churn out free cash for the public, have fountains of fresh drinking water, a hot dog stand or even an LCD TV to at least distract the viewers from the audacity of the govt to approve such ostentatious and unacceptable spending!
Is this the way we want to spend our money when we already don't have enough for ourselves, let alone help the flood affectees - who have lost everything? I'm pretty sure a statue of anyone, let alone BB is going to bring them any comfort. That is, unless it shoots laser beams at the malaria-ridden mosquitos hounding the now homeless.
