New dress code to conserve electricity... By Talha

The federal government has come up with another unique idea for electricity conservation: a change in dress code. All the top bureaucrats in particular have been ordered to start wearing clothes according to the weather. The coming winter should see them wearing clothes that are warm enough to ensure that less gas or electricity is used for heaters. This will also be the case in summers; no suits or ties, which is the usual dress code for bureaucrats. Instead, loose shalwar kameez (traditional trouser and shirt) are being promoted for easy air passage underneath the clothes to keep hands from going straight for the air conditioner's switch. Such decisions by the government confound the general public over its seriousness towards addressing the energy crisis in the country.
