Poor Qual­ity

India Today - - MAIL -

We have seen how Chi­nese com­pact flu­o­res­cent lamps, toys, bi­cy­cles and a host of other goods fare in In­dian mar­kets (“Trains to Pak­istan”, Oc­to­ber 24). The fate of a ther­mal power plant in the vicin­ity of Hisar, to be built with Chi­nese help, hangs in the bal­ance. So, it come as no sur­prise that Chi­nese rail­way en­gines have flopped in Pak­istan. It makes one won­der about the so-called prow­ess of this gi­ant.

RA­JIV AN­GR­ISH, Hisar Pak­istan’s de­ci­sion to ask In­dia for 50 rail­way en­gines on hire comes af­ter its rail­way ser­vices suf­fered a crip­pling blow brought on by the forced can­cel­la­tion of 125 trains. It seems its Chi­nese friends ended up pro­vid­ing them the kind of qual­ity they are in­fa­mous for.
