Load-shedding cannot be ended before 2011
Didn’t I say we are in a hopeless situation since we are ruled by a bunch of corrupt liars. Didn’t I say no new power project will surface in the coming years. The ruling politicians would keep buying time and leave the issues for the succeeding governments and the cycle would go on.
So who was that who used to vehemently say that load shedding would definitely be ended by end of 2009? Zardari? Gillani?
Here is the fresh statement:
LAHORE: Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan Saturday ruled out the possibility of ending load-shedding in the country before 2011.
Talking to media after meeting with the members of Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry, he said in the coming federal budget the poor will be provided relief while more taxes will be imposed on the rich.
He said the Swat operation will continue without making any compromise and that no one will be allowed challenge writ of the government.
