  • What the F is OGRA smoking?
    Why they keep asking for increment in cost? instead of decreasing it, they’re already getting huge amount of extra money from oil price.

    • Brother, it might be needed to spend on other not for profit project like like educational programs or ehsaas program or to spend on police employee’s pay so that don’t police “gardi ” even more.

      • are you living in usa or pakistan ? you must be kidding me or you are in gov. becuse where is education program where is new pakistan ? where is heavon ? where are 10 million jobs ? eventually they want more money in order for next election compaign.

  • The question is what is the reasons when P. M can or cannot increase or decrease price. P. M decision is on what basis. Yes or no.
