He said that the gas department makes its own planning that where it needs to start a new scheme.
He said that special decisions are taken in special circumstances we needed some system like military courts to punish the terrorists. He said that there are examples in the world that judges have adjudicated the cases in the jails wearing veils on their faces.

FARRUKH SALEEM POLITICAL SCIENTIST said that the railways performance has been improved in last few years but appointments in Pakistan are made on the basis of loyalty rather than the ability. He said that the institutions are supposed to implement the laws but in Pakistan the institutions work for the interest of the government instead of the people. He said that the governments want everything under their control. He said that the soul of the regulatory authority is freedom and taking the freedom away is like taking it soul away from the authority. He said that international institutions were ready to give billions of rupees to regulatory authorities but they walked away when they were given under the control of the ministries.
He said that if the military courts are constituted because of the failure of the civil justice system then education, electricity and water problems should also be handed over to the military.
