An article on Economic Corridor appeared in Nawa-i-Waqt of 30-05-2015 by Rehmat Khan Wardag in which the writer has lamented that Govt. is not serious in the matter of KBD. The Sharif Govt. has got support for Economic Corridor in an all party meeting which method could also be adopted in building consensus on KBD. It appears that Govt. is not serious in building the vital KBD. If the Govt. would have been serious they would have tried to build consensus on the issue.

This is a sane voice raised in the din of Chinese funded projects but who would listen the voice of a single person, when the Govt. is busy in projecting for motorways and bridges when we desperately need water storage and cheap power. The city of Karachi is suffering from lack of drinking water but both PPP and PML-N are sitting smugly on their haunches without batting an eye.
