Awam Mar Gae … Bhutto Aaj Bhe Zinda Hai

bhutto zinda haiMohtarma Benazir Bhutto’s birthday was celebrated with full zeal and zest throughout the country. Pakistan People’s Party arranged processions country wide. Government held mass gatherings and seminars to mark the birthday of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto. Promises were made once again to empower the AWAM with roti, kapra and makaan. Oh yes! roti, kapra and makaan. Every congregation resonated with the famous slogan enchanted by public “Bhutto Aj Bhe Zinda Hy”

Let us have a glance on two years’ rule of Pakistan People’s Party. Pakistan People’s Party claims itself to be the Awami Jama’at of Pakistan. Pakistan I san agriculture based economy. Flour is the staple food of people of Pakistan, grown at a large scale by harvesters and always produced as a BUMPER CROP yet always in shortage. Back in 2008 flour was sold for Rs.13/kg and now in 2010 it is Rs.34/kg and still they say Bhutto aj bhe zinda hy …

Pakistan has seen worst sugar crisis in 2009 with its price sky high. Out of approximately seventy five sugar mills roughly thirty are owned by people directly or indirectly in National assembly or Senate e.g. Humayun Akhtar owns three sugar mills, Jehangir Tareen owns three sugar mills, Nawaz Sharif owns three sugar mills, Abbass Sarfraz a former minister owns four sugar mills and so on. Despite the fact that the grand sugar daddies are either in opposition or government sugar crisis grew out of proportion. In 2008 sugar was sold for Rs.21/kg but now its Rs.67/kg and still they say Bhutto aj bhe zinda hy …

Milk is one of the basic necessities of life. The price of milk in last two years has increased astonishingly. For AWAM of Pakistan milk has become a luxury now rather a basic commodity. In 2008 milk was sold for Rs.32/kg but now its Rs.60/kg and still they say Bhutto aj bhe zinda hy …

Leaving aside food items let us have a fleeting look at hasty boost in the price of petrol. The petrol price/kg in 2008 was Rs.46 but now it has been raised to Rs.75.20/kg. This has resulted in increased rates of community convey. Transporters lift fares every other day; thus making life of poor people more despondent still Bhutto aj bhe zinda hy …

Not only this; but prices of electronic items have also augmented in past two years. For instance air conditioners in 2008 cost Rs.20,000 but now they are being sold for Rs.32,000 plus. Pakistan has extreme summers and winters. In last two years load shedding has made lives of people terrible. On one hand is load shedding and increased cost of generators, UPSs and air conditioners and on the other hand they say Bhutto aj bhe zinda hy …

Value added tax on every other thing, sky high cost of food items, increasing prices of electronic items, devaluing rupee, rich becoming richest and poor becoming poorest and yes money being gathered in few hands.

  1. Does anyone knows what became of $60 million dollars frozen by Swiss Govt. when this was discovered in Bhutto’s bank account back in 1989. Swiss police believed these funds were outcome of arms deal where Mr. 10% hid the stash away from Pakistani public’s view.
    Unfortunately for Pakistan where we have an unwritten rule which clearly states the loot from one leader should never be touched by another leader. Consequently, when no one from Pakistani government showed any interest in retrieving these funds, the Swiss government after 5 years reluctantly surrendered this money back to the account where these funds were originally found.

  5. There should be a new book on the triumphs of ruling elite, dynasty policticians ,autocratic money muncherz. The book should be named “the dheet”. Lying in the face of people in all talk shows, interviews, slandering loudly, breaking promises and making new ones right there each time, and still being consistent that they can deliver.. well they can deliver more s@#..
