Petrol prices raised by Rs.6.10/litre to increase miseries of the citizens

The recent rise in petrol prices has shown that the government is not capable enough to give relief to the citizens. The present raise will increase prices of almost all products and services associated with petrol.

When I visited a service station inside a shell petrol pump today morning, I had to wait for almost an hour at the pump. Whatever I have seen was not clear until I read the news of petrol prices tonight. I saw around 50 motorcyclist and almost equal number of cars entering pump but were denied of petrol by the pump owner claiming that there was no supply to the pumps. The situation got worse when people started complaining that other petrol pumps of University Road were also out of supply. I failed to understand why the petrol pumps were out of supply on a holiday when there is no rush of office traffic.

There were senior citizens who were sweating because of prolonged dragging of their motorbikes, a couple in a car were desperately pleading as they were unable to find the fuel with few liters left for their planned journey. One of the motorcyclists started shouting and threatened to burn the petrol pump. At that time I thought that the pump owner is innocent and was trapped in unforeseen situation. But the news tonight opened my eyes and now I realize how mean and cunning these pump owners are.

I demand judiciary to take notice of this situation as the oil companies (especially Shell Pakistan) and their agents are squarely responsible for gaining profits form supplies they had in their stocks. I am sure that government of Pakistan and related ministry is not going to take any action because they are surely getting their fair share of this loot and plunder.

If this is a people’s government then why its actions are speaking against it? This is a big question mark. I urge all political parties and NGOs to raise voice against the incidents and planned looting of people of Pakistan in name of oil and petrol. We as a nation should unite and save Pakistan from these corrupt and selfish regimes.

IPL auction 2010 – Utter disappointment for Pakistani stars

The disappointing and insulting episode of IPL auction 2010 sparked a new wave of tension between two countries. Pakistan since Mumbai attacks acted positively in releasing tension but the Indian counterparts were too hot to cash the events for political gains. Pakistan proved to be the sensible among two by avoiding military conflict.

On the other hand Indian government posed like the super power trying to keep Pakistan under its thumb. The recent insult of Pakistani players by Indians in IPL Auction 2010 has raised so many questions. This obvious that Indian government is not serious in diffusing tension as this is good for them to gain sympathies of their citizens who criticized them for poor security and mishandling of Mumbai events. Such childish behavior is a wakeup call for Pakistanis.

I strongly demand that GEO TV network should boycott IPL this year and all Pakistani companies should not sponsor IPL matches if telecasted from any of the channel. Furthermore, all channels should be strictly instructed to boycott news of IPL or other related events.

All Pakistanis around the world should spread this message of unity and should stand together to counter this humiliation which should be felt by Indians.

I demand that Wasim Akram should immediately resign from his commitment with IPL team and come back to country with a strong message of support for Pakistani players.
