Speaker of the Sindh Assembly has ordered installation of mobile jammers in the Assembly Hall as the cell phones of the august members keep ringing, thus distracting the proceedings of the assembly. Strange, and to me such an expenditure on jammers would be totally unwarranted and a sheer waste of the public money. For, I don’t think our honourable MPAs are that uncouth and uncivilized, not to know that they should not use cell phones or they should be on ‘silent’ mode during the debates in the assembly. If they really are so unethical then why waste money? Companies have strict rules against use of cell phones and the employees abide by this rule how come our highest and most honourable citizens cannot understand this simple rule of conduct?
