Allah Almighty has bestowed our country with all the natural wealth in terms of minerals, oil and gas, natural vegetation and fertile cultivable lands, ample precipitation and water bodies, four seasons and tourists spots, ocean and ship ports etc. The country is rich in natural wealth by all definitions. The recent discovered Reqo Diq gold and copper mines worth $260 billion, if utilized properly and sincerely would not only alleviate poverty but could be sustained for the years to come. But mismanagement and inappropriate utilization of natural wealth has led the people to face poverty and chaos. I am really sorry to say that the poor people of the rich country are getting even poorer. ENGR ALI BESERYA, Faisalabad, December 9.
