This is to highlight the overlooked issue which annoys every person but isn’t discussed that much. Telecommunication companies (e.g. Mobilink) as a part of their marketing campaigns, have set automated calls to their customers at regular intervals which are trivial, since no one ever listens to their calls and the offer being made thus. However, they might turn out to be the reason of some causality one day if not already. A few days ago I was on my way to the market and all of a sudden my phone rang. Had I panicked a little bit, which is a bit natural whenever there is someone calling, I would have met an accident for no good reason. 

Therefore, this is a request to PTA and all the concerned authorities to look into this matter and either stop this futile marketing tactic or reduce its frequency substantially.
