Government has sought technical assistance from China and USA to avoid recurrent nationwide power blackouts due to sabotage. It is an appreciative decision which will foil the mal-intended and unexpected disruptions by elements trying to sabotage the civic systems. Government has also vowed to enhance the security of the power transmission line to avoid attacks. On the other hand, Prime Minister has also ordered immediate disbursement of the Rs.40 bn to PSO for replenishing oil supply. Civic system of any country depicts the governance on ground and efforts made to facilitate the citizens. Our civic system offers great room for improvement however; it is heartening that Government is moving in the right direction.
