Whenever there is an issue or crisis we get to hear that certain people have been transferred or asked to relinquish charge. Has this practice ever produced any meaningful results? It is high time that the government should take exemplary actions: Sack the Minister in charge and all concerned officials not performing their duties! Transferring one incompetent, inept official from one department to another is making a mess of all!

Changing individuals are not the soltion of Load Sheddings. A practical and concrete step must be taken by the Federal and provincial Govenments. If something is not available then how come it could be possible to provide it?????
