The last paragraph is as true as the proverbial unicorn. One would really wish BR to conduct a boots-on-ground survey of tehsils of only a handful of districts in Punjab. Much reality will come forth and numb the senses after witnessing non-existing ''health, education, clean drinking water, roads, sanitation'' and how in the absence of these basic necessities, the living standards of people are faring. p.s. the billions of rupees dolled out to parliamentarians by the PDM government for improving the lives of people are still unaccounted for.
