President Asif Ali Zardari was put up in a 5,000 dollar per night (approximately Rs 410,000) presidential suite at sixth floor of the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington and did not share the floor with other highly protected Pakistani VVIPs. Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, Intelligence Bureau (IB) Director General Dr Shoaib Suddle and Interior Minister Rehman Malik, who all needed top security in Washington, were not given a room on the ultra-protected sixth floor of the hotel during Zardari’s stay. But PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was given a separate suite, which cost 2,600 dollars per night on the same floor. Three sepoys, two lance naiks, one Hawaldar and several other officers below the rank of lieutenant general were lodged on the same floor, said a document published by the Pakistan embassy. Responding to a journalist’s question, a Pakistan embassy official said Zardari’s stay was the cheapest as compared with the past rulers, who spent much more money while staying in hotels in Washington. Moreover, he said, this was the requirement of the hotel that the president should stay at the 6th floor because of security concerns. He said if other members of the president’s delegation would have been accommodated in another hotel that would have been objected to by the critics as discrimination.
