Karachi, Pakistan (WiredPRNews.com) — With different news in local Pakistan newspapers about the economic instability on the economic and social fronts of Pakistan, the Adviser to the Prime Minister on Finance still thinks that people have faith in the government.
Can someone ask him, “Did people of Pakistan have any faith in the government at all?” Can Mr. Tareen answer a simple question asked by common man, ordinary citizen, “What has PPP led government done up till now so that people can foster their support and have faith in them?”
The people are under pressure with the same problems that citizens were facing 25 to 30 years ago. These issues are still standing in their places but in practically all areas, these problems have multiplied. This is the story of all the democratic and the military governments that have reigned the country.
Shouting out loud to be “for the people, by the people,” and some coming to power with the slogans of “food, clothing and shelter”– except may the food, clothing and shelter is for themselves and let the people of country stand naked and without food and shelter. This is what Pakistan Peoples Party, Muslim League (Q) and Pakistan Muslim League (N) had done in all their past periods of power.
The shortage of wheat in the country is one such example. There is a shortage of wheat as it was mostly exported out of the country. Who exported it? The ministers, their agents and the companies in which these ministers had stakes! The wheat is now being horded and released by the hoarders of the crop at the price that they wish. So why is not the government of Pakistan taking any action against these fleecing insects? The reason is obvious: they have their thorns dug deep inside the country’s administration and some big wigs are benefiting from this, creating a miserable situation for the poor and the middle class of Pakistan.
Electricity – The country has been facing a shortage of power for over 30 years. Did any government whether civilian or a military ruler think about it? Yes, the city administration thought about it. They inducted the people in the power distribution and generating companies and preached how to steal power by giving them illegal, unregistered and unauthorized connections. Receiving underhand payments worth billions annually, thus weakening the structure of the power companies.
Law and order situation in the country is at its worst. They have done everything to secure their positions and inflating their foreign bank accounts. All that the President, the Prime Minister and their band wagon is doing is running from pillar to post world wide with the begging bowl finding short cuts bailing the country out of the financial crises just to push the poor of the country with more burden of debt on their shoulders.
Can any sane person have faith in the present government – people who have served their best parts of life in jails, with court cases in practically every country of the world? They leader who rose to power by walking on the dead body of their loved ones.
