Austerity measures are required to be taken up by the government, as pledged in their election campaign. The government should use the tax-payers money wisely and honestly to strengthen its credibility. Moreover being the true representatives of public, it is expected that the lawmakers in both Federal and Provincial Assemblies should do away with unnecessary security measures and extravagant pomp and show. They should make themselves accessible to the public and to address their issues. It is good to note that Prime Minister has recently restricted Federal and State Ministers from having unnecessary trips abroad and has directed them to stay in their offices and to focus on their performance.
