Most Expensive Electricity in The World


Today news have appeared in the local newspapers that with the recent purposed increase of Rs. 2.50 per unit will make electricity most expensive the world.

This is another deed of people’s government. Has anybody raised any voice against this increase? I have seen protest statements only from Karachi merchants and Jam Madad Ali, leader of the opposition in Sindh assembly. People of Karachi expect MQM to take strong stand on this issue.

If you go to low income areas of Karachi you would see a web of wires in the streets above your head. All these wires are running illegally from the distribution poles to people’s homes. In local language it is called kunda system. The question is, why the government cannot stop the stealing of electricity from the grid system? The burden of this free for all stealing goes to other people who do not steal.

Dunya TV has run a poll on their website about the budget 2009-10. As of today 86 per cent indicated that this is anti people budget.

Do you have any opinion on the budget or anything related to people’s welfare Pakistan Forum is open for anybody and everybody. You can say what ever is on your mind. You are welcome to write your comments.

How Much Afghan Governemnt Has Control Over Afghanistan


Helmand is the most violent province in Afghanistan. The governor of Helmand province, Gulab Mangal said the government controls only 8 of the 13 districts in the province. The districts where government has no control, three districts are in the north of the province, and two in the south. NATO security forces are planning to regain the control of these areas.

That tells you how much NATO and allied forces are successful over there.
