Are Government Projects Business-Minded?

The present government of Pakistan is spending millions on development projects, which are mostly based in Punjab. Recently, the government has invested huge sums of money for the Orange Line Project. Critics and the opposition are already criticizing the government for initiating heavily expensive projects in Lahore. Now judicial experts are also criticizing the government for their planning.

One of the worst parts of all the expensive development projects initiated by the government is that they do not keep a check and balance system during the progress phase of all these projects. Once the investment is done and work has been started, the government does not check whether the investment is done on the right part or whether there a need for improvement. All these loopholes end up in the wastage of national budget as the government seems least bothered about it. They do not care if the money they invested for people is actually bringing them any fruits or not. Once again, the benefit of a common man is undermined.

There have been recent reports on the loss of millions due to the development deal with China. The government has defended projects like Orange Line Project by saying that it is the need of this hour and it is a public welfare project. Obviously, the project would be partially completed while the court finishes the formal process of checking out on this statement.

There has to be serious critical thinking before any such projects are planned by any government. Public fund investment surveillance is the hardcore need in Pakistan.
