What a 'peoples government' we have. There are power lines but no electricity, water lines but no water, gas lines but no gas, bumper wheat crop but no atta, petrol pumps but no petrol, police by hundreds of thousands but no law and order. The other day they said in the news that the President has taken notice of the shortages. So, do not despair people, the rivers of milk and honey would be flowing soon. Another news in the bulletin was about Ms. Sherry Rehman presiding over the meeting that decided to take action against those engaged in rumormongering against government. So, beware of complaining against gas, electricity, atta and petrol shortages, lest you are hauled up. -DR ZAHEER ASGHAR KHAN, Lahore, via e-mail, January 2.
