Our reporter adds: This increase of prices is one of the worst decisions of so called PPP government and it will increase inflation and will affect the cost of almost every product.
Now it is time for PML-N, MQM, and ANP to show that they care about the people of Pakistan and are not interest in power. MQM and ANP should end coalition government from Federal and Provincial level and PML-N should immediately resign from Punjab Assembly. These steps will surely impose a massive pressure on PPP government and may also end the government tenure.
There is no hope from PPP government to give any relief to common people.
