Punjab Assembly today resolved to ban all the late night call packages across Punjab. After the strong arguments about how the late night packages were having the negative impact on the youth, the resolution was passed unanimously.
It is worth mentioning here that almost all the cellular companies in Pakistan Mobilink, Telenor, Warid, Zong are offering quite attractive late night offers that are quite popular amongst the youth and the popularity is growing day by day. While this package are quite helpful for the students who prepare their assignments, presentations and exams late night, these packages were certainly abused by many.
The most noted case of abuse of late night offer is that a bunch of boys add each other in the conference call, and then they dial a random number and tease them late night. There have been several cases of the same sort and apparently this is the good move of Punjab Assembly.
