Recently, an advertisement of Government of Sindh was published in leading newspapers of Pakistan. I always wondered why our government was not using any form of modern day communication services like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Line, Skype etc. It was good to see that in this advertisement a WhatsApp number, was also given along with a landline number and email. Facebook and Twitter profiles were also mentioned. However, it is sad to see that the Facebook page, Twitter Profile and WhatsApp are not properly maintained. Many things are missing from the Facebook page. Twitter profile is not active. WhatsApp number is showing its last seen on October 22, 2:11pm. It’s a shame and waste of public money to give this type of advertisement. At least one should have someone look into these social media profiles, and numbers before giving ads. At the bottom of the advertisement, Ghulam Qadir Thebo Chairman Enquiries and Anti-Corruption Establishment and Murtaza Wahab Siddiqui Advisor to Chief Minister, Sindh for Law & Anti-Corruption Establishment Sindh are mentioned. It means that they are responsible for this advertisement. I request Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to look into this and advise his team to make the social media profiles of the government active just like his (Bilawal Bhutto) own twitter profile.
