    The fund allocated for the energy sector is insufficient considering the government’s plan to develop 15000MW of electricity within 10 years. The government ignored our suggestion regarding the capital formation to finance the energy project. We had suggested the government to raise the fund for the projects by levying additional tax on the telecommunication services. But, the budget remained silent over it.
