FEDERAL Interior Minister Rehman Malik’s sixth sense tells him that the incidents of fire in factories in Lahore and Karachi were a terrorist attack. I also believe that it was a terrorist act and the people responsible should be punished.

Just after the fire in Lahore and Karachi, a fire in Islamabad’s Blue Area was averted by the quick action of firefighters. The reason for the fire was transportation of diesel fuel for the cellular company tower’s electricity generator on the building. There are countless other similar incidents in which there were deaths and injuries caused by electricity loadshedding.

Can Rehman Malik use his sixth sense to help resolve the internal debt of the IPPs and improve transportation of furnace oil to thermal power units so that trucking companies do not steal and mix water with furnace oil, making its quality worse, reducing energy production and increasing energy cost?

This way he would help end loadshedding. Rather than blaming unknown and invisible terrorists and creating fear among people, I would like to request the interior minister to help resolve the problem of loadshedding, fake degrees, Haj scandal, etc.
