Waiting for almost an hour beyond the scheduled meeting time with chairman WAPDA on water and power issues, I noticed a photograph on the wall captioned "The ground breaking ceremony of Bhasha dam". The date of ceremony was April 2006. Just goes to show no progress has been made on dam construction for the last over three years. The meeting I was waiting for did not materialize due to mismanagement of time by the WAPDA staff. I had to return with the depressing thought that if an organisation having innumerable staff cannot not even hold a scheduled meeting on time, what scope does it have of building a hydroelectric project as mammoth as Bhasha on time? -DR M.
