Where is the writ of government? If the Ministry of Petroleum cannot even quote the new gas prices correctly, what would you expect? Even after fixing it anew, they have not been able to enforce it. Is there any sign that a government exists? I do hope that the foreign minister, who is also the petroleum minister, will constitute an investigation team to check who among the ministry officials handed him the misleading statement. To clear his own position and end this controversy, the Prime Minister should also call for a high level probe into this mess. -DR ALFRED CHARLES, Karachi, via e-mail, July 6.
