Every now and then we have a sugar, wheat, gas or scores of other problems. Prices have gone sky-high. The pity is that even the food items have become out of reach for the majority of Pakistanis who live in poverty. Effectively, the country is heading for a revolution as inflation has assumed horrific proportions. When one has an entire family to feed and is not able to earn enough money, the situation would definitely have a negative impact on the society as it will create unrest and chaos. This is also how people are pushed to commit extreme acts like suicide. The government must seriously try to put the economy back on track and provide some relief to the people.
