Two of the most important indicators of bad or good governance are economy and law and order. In the current dispensation both portfolios are with non-elected men not quite answerable to people. Neither can be called an expert of his field, one is a banker; a far cry from an economist while the other an ex-absconding employee of FIA. While we have had a nightmarish ordeal with bankers, especially of the Citi- brand, this FIA man is a new kettle of fish. Recently, there has been some cover up of the corrupt practices of our legislators. The gas theft by a Sheikhupura MNA and power theft by a Karachi MNA were caught on tape and shown on national news. No explanation of why Advisor Interior admonished FIA when Sindh Interior Minister Zulfiqar Mirza's name appeared in human trafficking investigations? What has Kalia and Khanani network revealed? There is complete silence. We have had a landmark Eid this year when for the first time in our history President and PM offered prayers within the safety of their residential compounds. What should we make of this? -KHURAM KHAN, Lahore, via e-mail, January 25.
