KARACHI: This is with reference to Talat Hussain’s article titled “Without planning we will sink” (August 16). One reason why there has been no cabinet meeting is perhaps ministers are too busy getting their houses bunkered using government resources, while mothers are losing their children to raging waters or they are busy fighting with other ministers to divert flood waters off of their lands.
Secondly, let’s be candid for the sake of our dear motherland. Do we realistically expect the government to be capable enough to put in place a plan to deal with such a huge natural disaster? The government can’t seem to run the country even in normal times, so to expect it to do that in times such as these is perhaps expecting too much.
