The grand finale?

I heard the ruling party's spokesperson say that the present government is not able to solve the problems of the common man because of its tussle with the judiciary. The fact is that its members have always had only one priority: enriching themselves.

This is why in its present stint in power it has been struggling since day one to ensure its survival. The rupee has declined by 45 per cent since this government came into power two years ago. But I don't think the PPP leaders have ever been worried about petty issues like this, or the rising food prices, or even people killing themselves due to hunger.
