He said the caretaker government is surely duty bound to make corrections wherever required and set right the omissions, neglect and mistakes of the ex-government.

He invited the attention of the PM to the flight of capital, the feeling of insecurity in the business community and urged and his worthy cabinet to take positive steps and not just wait for the next government to set things right. The interim period is very important considering the issues facing the country and remaining passive to the issues will enhance the difficulties.

The caretaker cabinet ministers are expected to shoulder the responsibilities and ensure that during the caretaker period they are able to confront the issues boldly especially the issues of law and order, economy, corruption and inflation.
