Oh the Drama

JUST when the Supreme Court played its role issuing stay order against introduction of new Carbon Surcharge Tax in lieu of already sky high petroleum levy showing how it is possible to give relief to the people when government itself failed, the government played its card, in a crooked way as usual and petrol is being sold at the same price yet again. Well, this clearly shows that our man on top is well aware of how to use the back doors when the gates are being watched by sentinels. But public has its own way of reacting to situations. What the government did by introducing the Petroleum Levy Ordinance might produce far more repercussions than what the government would have expected, I mean this is such a stupid act taken at a time when the common lot feels so contented in cursing the PPP government for inflation, for the Damocles’ sword of expected increasing electricity tariff and not to forget the sizzling hot weather that affects the temperaments to a considerable extent. I can see a quick response by the public that may soon ensue.

It may surprise some factors as to why the government showed such a sense of urgency in re-imposing the tax with a different name, my answer to that surprise is-we have Mr.10% as our president, who knows how much share he has under the disguise of petroleum levy. Pakistan Zindabaad!

I must say that it is not only the govt to blame, the Pakistani people are equally responsible for the deterioration of their circumstances. We have made the decision to elect the rulers like Mr. 10%, so now let's face it. One thing still can be done to avoid worsening of the conditions to make a decision of do or die ... stand like a rock against the dirty, malign and unjust decisions against the nation. Just like the people in the Bangladesh did against the autocracy. If that does not happen, things may continue to be like that.

I must say one more thing that these things are due to our actions (A'amal), let's recourse to Allah (SWT), things would certainly get reversed in positive direction.

God helps those who help themselves.

Let's hope and work for the best.

Interesting people in an interesting country always do interesting things. Petroleum price war is just like an event and will be soon the history. It will put no such bad effect on PPP as much we can expect. Good number of pakistanis behave like a forgetful man story. In the past times every body knows what the PPP(Zardari) had done for Pakistani nation but no one is wondered to see that PPP(Zardari) is again in power. This all is the forgetful man story. So dont be sad. Asif is still with you.
