So at what point will Pakistanis decide that we need some population control in this country.

It is quiet evident that this government has no control and will ruin the country politically and economically, they will not be able to handle either extremist elements or economy, however they will end-up making billions.-- These comments will not make any impact but I hate to see this beautiful destroyed systematically, Imran Khan has proven to be very immature politician and does not has a clue of how to handle this situation.

India just decreased its POL prices by Rs 3, while Pakistan just increased its POL price by Rs 4.

I wonder what the maximum price of petrol was during Musharraf's tenure, if somebody can put me wise. Long live democratic govts! People shouldn't complain: after all they have democracy, and a democratic govt elected to office with their votes.

What type of subsidy they are giving, they cannot make the people fool by these rubbish justifications. Why do not they tell how much tax they are getting on one liter? If they are sincere with the people then why do not the cut the taxes? Every body knows they are doing all this on the directives of IMF to get another loan. No doubt common man's life is becoming miserable day by day by these so called democratic people and KASHKOL champions.
