Bread now costs Rs25!


#1

What is going on? I mean is there anyone to see where we heading to? We are actually forcing the poor man to loot not the leaders, not the politicians but normal and avg people, common man. We are indeed heading towards a bloody revolution which will surely take thousands of lives. You, me, our family, our friends and beloved ones could easily fall victim to all this!

Thanks Democrazy!

15Rs last year I think as long as we’re on the same track. That’s a generalization there and I cannot figure out what type of bread is in spotlight. If it’s about sliced bread, then that’s what it used to cost per pack.

If it’s about roti, that’s at 5 - 6rs.

i was just trying to avoid a political debate on this topic by pasting forum’s title.

Zeeshan seem to be giving an impression that rising prices are a direct consequence of democratic transition in the country and maybe some how a dictator could have influenced the rising international oil prices(which in turn is causing havoc with prices of everyday use essential items),rising prices is a world wide phenomenon,its just because of adverse economic and financial situation in our country that we’re feeling the crunch more then others.

All of these factors have been present for a long time now. The International Oil price increase started in 2003.

Here is a little bit of comparison with International Oil Price Increase, and Increase in Pakistan from Sep 06-Oct 07 (The last time I bought petrol was in october), and a few other price increases (or no increases) I can recall: (I might be forgetting a few numbers, so I apologize in advance)

From Sep 06 - Oct 07 : International Oil price Increase ($ per barrel): $64 - $85

From Sep 06 - Oct 07 : Pakistan Oil Price Increase : (Rs per litre): ~Rs 54 - 54 ?

From Sep 06 - Oct 07: Urban transport lowest Bus fair: Rs 6, Bread (roti) : Rs 3, One serving of “daal”: Rs 16.

Why doesn't the Govt. ever says 'Raise in Salaries of people in both public and private sector' when they increase prices on all commodities.

The govt. just gave Rs. 20bn to the freaking stock exchange so why cant they tell companies to raise their employee's salary.

I'm thinking of buying a tent and a small space in Safari Park if the current situation remains the same or worsens.
