The PM is right in saying he is continuing the mission of Bhutto and Benazir. Bhutto turned flourishing industries into sick industries with his ill-advised policy of nationalisation which even his own finance minister had criticised. And PM is doing the same. Industry is not getting the power it needs and what little it gets is very expensive. Benazir went for electrification of villages through the IPPs to the exclusion of hydel power which would have given water for irrigation. And PM is doing the same by neglecting the hydel option. Failed policies need to be discarded and not proudly continued.
