Our democratically-elected government is, apparently, working against the old adage that the worst of democracy is better than dictatorship. Since the day it took oath, the inflation took off and is rising almost by the day. Law and order situation is the worst ever with none deeming himself safe in the country. Incidents of terrorism are happening everyday. Even the rulers themselves cannot move with out an army of guards and armadas of bullet-proof vehicles. The common man is living the life of a dog. He has nothing. Everyday brings new problems and despairs for him. What kind of a democracy is this that the masses are dead and nobody is bothered? -HAFSA NAZ, Karachi, March 30.
