The multiple crises afflicting the country at present have made the people sit up and take notice. People from every nook and corner of the country are raising protests about one issue or the other. The plight of the common man should be easy to understand since every one of us is suffering. The important thing at the moment is neither to shift blame on the government, nor to engage in mudslinging against our leaders. The government is trying to utilize all available options for the rescue. The path is strewn with huge boulders of difficulties. The PPP government inherited so many problems from the previous regime that it will take time to find solutions. The people need to stand united and give support to our leaders in these difficult times. -HIRA MANZAR, Karachi, via e-mail, November 26.
