Can one imagine the amount of gas being wasted in large central air-conditioning plants when correct technology would have saved up to 40 percent gas?

It is heartening to note that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif seem to have appreciated the criticality of the situation. They have been telling flood-affected people that they will continue their efforts until all flood-hit families are rehabilitated and get due compensation for their losses.
