  • Recognising the absence of trust in any level of government, Mr Sharif (whose brother is chief minister of Punjab) has asked the private sector to take up reconstruction work, urging businesses and charities to adopt damaged villages and to undertake projects such as rebuilding houses and schools. The government would merely offer advice. An initial list of over 200 villages has been drawn up. The scheme shows that at least the Punjab government is thinking creatively. But given that 500,000 homes and 1.7m acres of farmland were damaged in Punjab alone, it is hard to see how a task on this scale can be outsourcedand doubtful that the private sector has the appetite to take it on.
