What kind of sovereignty is this? Of the 220 million people who actually own the state, they are poor having limited income. It is not the heartbeat of living beings that counts, but the numbers. People have to keep their fingers on the calculator and not the pulse. Surely the finance minister will realize that with such a high price of essentials like petrol, all the necessities become expensive. Millions and even crores of compatriots go below the poverty line in the blink of an eye.
You should not be one-sided when petrol prices are skyrocketing. If the state is helpless in the face of global markets and it has to increase petrol prices, then you should give some relief in those areas which are within the control of the state.

So will these demonstrations be without petrol?
Fear of Rising Prices of Ghee and Flour
Opposition protests do not bring any relief to the people of God. Opposition leaders are all billionaires. Most of them have their own petrol pumps, both petrol and gas. This increase does not say anything to them either.

We must think alternatively and use our resources. Imran Khan should go, any ruler should come. You will have to import petrol. Fluctuations in global markets have to be taken into account.

The media and the opposition only make a fuss and exaggerate.
Just as many NGOs are providing facilities to the people in the fields of education and health, a foundation, a tourist, a fraternity will have to come to the fore. In the Diamond Jubilee year of Pakistan, millions of Pakistanis will have to set up a huge transport system on a profit or loss basis to commute daily from home to office or factory.
The price of ghee is expected to increase by Rs. 80 per kg while flour mills have also been given the challenge to increase the price of flour.
