Rosy picture painted


This is with regards to the news report, ‘Country is safe on economic front: Dr Sheikh’ published yesterday. The worthy finance minister has, surprisingly, drawn a very rosy picture of the economy just to please his boss, but it is against the ground realities. Poverty is penetrating among the public at large, Pakistani currency is getting devalued continuously, etc. In the absence of availability of power and gas, both of which are available at almost half of the potential demand in the country; how can we expect the economy be healthy in the absence of these two commodities which are life blood of the economy?
