No bed of roses

Sir: The incoming government should first try to recover the huge amounts of unpaid electricity bills from industries in the country’s largest province (including, perhaps, the Sharif family’s own Ittefaq Foundries). I am sure this will go a long way to reduce the quantum of load shedding in the country. Later, the Punjab government can tackle electricity theft, which is responsible to a great extent for the current power crisis. However, it is doubtful if the new prime minister will alienate his party members by taking such radical measures.

    The plan looks impressive but it lacks credibility…..How is Nawaz going to win votes if he sack state owned enterprise employees?? (will see) How he can crack down on electricity theft when he himself stole electricity during his election campaign??? (Hypocrites, this part of policy is probably lip service)
    indebting highly indebt economy…..God only know what will be next!!!!
    By the way I pray that all his ideas work……May Allah Help you in your presumed efforts.
