I cry for the old PPP. The new PPP has become anti-poor, pro-rich, pro-powerful and pro-inflation in every way. Products, services and utilities are all skyrocketing to the levels which will ruin the poor. What is the finance minister for if he can't do anything to reduce prices? He acts like an 8th class student and only prefers policies that will increase prices. Now he is abandoning the subsidies too. -H. SHAH, Faisalabad, via e-mail, June 15.
