Ayub Khan lost his rule for raising sugar price by merely four annas per kilo. The present rulers must have a magic wand that not a soul from the poor public stirred when they raised the price of sugar from Rs. 37 to Rs. 52. Blimey I forgot it is all due to the blessings of Ramadan on the rulers of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. -COL (Retd) RIAZ JAFRI, Rawalpindi, via e-mail, August 19.
