Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. The PMLN government in its quest to fully empower ministries is compromising the true independence of regulatory institutions. The government, especially in the power sector, is virtually assuming the role of the private sector as majority of mega projects are to be run by the public sector. In the process, regulatory institutions prudence was not letting them meet tough deadlines; and today the power of regulators is somehow crippled to make them subservient to relative ministries.
