A forsaken lot... By Saeed

Increasing the price of electricity will not affect the poor, who are already committing mass suicides by jumping in front of trains, or jumping in rivers, taking poison or even selling their children.
Mr Prime Minister, it is the middle class that will suffer the most – the small traders, teachers, retirees and clerks etc. They may huddle in one room with a small A/C, may have a small Suzuki and send their kids to a private school. Do you want to take these small comforts from them in this God-forsaken country where you rule like Mughal emperors?
