According to press reports, the Punjab legislators have demanded five-star hospitality from the government because they are 'privileged citizens'. They are the representatives of the people who are totally illiterate and so dirt-poor that they cannot even have access to clean drinking water. These ruling politicians belong to the elite class of the country that is only 2% of the 160 million. This is the reason that instead of solving the people's problems and hardships, they are interested only in their perks and privileges. As long as the political power is with these feudal, our citizens can have no hope of a better life. -ENGR S.T. HUSSAIN, Lahore Cantt., via e-mail, June 21.
