The latest blackouts during Sehri and Iftar times is yet another broken promise of Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf in the long line of fragile promises made in the past. While the Prime Minister looks fresh and fair on Television screen due to heavy make up with a broad smile. The baton charged crowd of poor women gathered for getting some flour is in stark contrast of the smugness on Prime Minister’s face. This shows that things are slipping from the hands of Prime Minister while the President looks blissfully chairing various meetings least concerned with the disturbing images of poor women biting dust just for a few kilos of flour. There goes the slogan of “roti”, kapra and makan” while the first step of flour is beyond the reach of hapless masses. The rulers have no right to reside in palatial mansions while the poor women grovel in dust seeking a few morsels of bread. The rulers are responsible for even a dog going hungry. Here the people are going hungry while well fed rulers and politicians with their manicured moustaches mock the abject poverty of hungry masses during holy month of Ramazan.
