Who is responsible?
According to a news item, our honourable ministers do not want to crack down on those who are hoarding wheat because the hoarders are influential people like themselves and could create problems for the ruling party in the general elections. So what else is new? No action was taken against those who caused the sugar shortage, because either some ministers or their relatives were involved. It seems that only crooks can get elected to parliament in Pakistan, and ironically it is they who decide the amount of taxes we, the law abiding citizens, must pay.
