Sweet travel

 Over the past year, sugar prices have declined by 39 percent internationally but we are paying 40 percent more for sugar than we did last year. The probable reason for this is that many of our politicians – both in the government and the opposition – are sugar mill owners.

Perhaps Imran Khan should ask his favourite (JKT) why he continues to rob us in this manner. But then JKT has to maintain an expensive aircraft to take the great leader and his wife all over the country. So why should he allow poor Pakistanis to get sugar at reduced rates?
