Caretaking nicely

February 01, 2023

The caretaker Punjab CM’s decision, according to reports, to suspend the operations of four offices under the use of the CM in a bid to reduce the government’s expenditure is a welcome step. Regrettably, the culture of lavish spending is common not only in elite public offices but in Pakistani society as a whole.

This appetite for ostentation is one of the major reasons behind the economic calamity. Hopefully, the administrations of the other provinces will follow caretaker CM Mohsin Naqvi’s lead.
