The MMA government is reported to have proudly announced the removal of all signboards in NWFP which depicted women. This is certainly not an achievement which will be remembered by future generations. It would be much better if they divert their attention to the removal of the rampant ills which afflict their province. They should concentrate on the real menace to the country, smuggling. The country's industries are faced with closure owing to this evil. And the damage done to the nation due to the drug and arms trade is well known. But this will require a giant leap forward, which the MMA government is incapable of taking. You can't expect it of those whose mindsets belong to the stone age.
