For those who are curious why we can't make deals with Iran and China- those deals have nothing for Zardari. The government is here with an agenda, they want to stick to it.
Is it possible for Supreme Court to take notice of this trend also and take Suo Moto notice for it
Assalam-o-Allaikum Warahmatullah.If PPPP government completes its 5-years tenure then the majority of the nation shall pay the utility bills especially gas and electricity after selling its precious house-hold things and small land lords shall pay the electricity and gas bills after selling their lands marla-wise every month.
My comment is restricted and meant for people who travel by CNG Rickshaw
Due to CNG outage, they are effectively without a chance to earn, 3 days a week. Now with the same outage, they would have to buy CNG at 13.55% more price than they used to ...
Please talk to any one of CNG Rickshaw drivers anywere in Pakistan, and you will actually feel the misery of people
Wow... another nail in coufin!!
Is there anything being done to increase the income of consumers. the pocket size is shrinking day by day. one thing they should remember hunger lost all ethics!!!
PPPP should aware of it.
Why cant we get some firm aid commitments from china! Subsidies are surely required as prices go up increasing burden on people already suffering from unemployment, militancy & poverty!
I expect soon there will be further unemployment; CNG stations have become a loss making business and many people have planned to shut down. I don't understand one thing that why cannot we have an agreement with IRAN?
i am quite sure that this increase is the first of many in the gas sector
Any thing can happen until PPP will remain in the government and President Asif Ali Zardi will be its President.
I am also going through the same agony as the other people of Pakistan. The words of last speech of General (R) Pervez Musharraf “Pakistan Ka Allah Hi Hafiz Ha” should be written with golden words in the books of history, as he exactly new what will happen after his departure.
General Musharraf – If you are reading my words, kindly pardon us before we die due to hunger and starvation. If it is possible for you, kindly come back and be our President once again. The entire national is eagerly waiting for you in Pakistan.
For God’s sake, kindly save Pakistan before it sinks at the bottom of the sea.
