  • Great decision, we need to realize that we have been living beyond our means for so long, and this is a great step towards the right direction. Giving “Relief” to people by taking loans is one of the reasons we are where we are.

    Now that the people will be paying the real prices, lets fix the gas price for industries and malls that run on literally free gas, privitace Steel mill, PIA, DISCOS etc. Govt should not be in the business of doing business, it should legislate for the people, devolve power to the local level and strengthen the might of public offices like Parliament, Supreme Court, FBR etc.

    I just hope against hope that the people in power realize that nothing will grow if the nation can’t grow togather.

  • It is my request to the government of Pakistan to increase the Petrol Quota of Government officers. We need an increase of atleast 50% quota. The current quota is too low for our daily needs. Thanks.
