Prices of essentials, especially food items are going up alarmingly. According to a report published in The Daily Star on June 23, 2012, common people are in a very difficult situation as eggs, the cheapest source of protein, have gone out of their reach. In the last one month, the prices of eggs and broiler chickens have gone up by 20 to 25 percent. It could be learnt that the situation would not have become so acute had the government paid attention to the poultry farmers' appeal for support during the bird flu outbreak. At that t6ime, farmers had to close more than 50,000 poultry farms. Neglect of the government is responsible for the sufferings of the people, but does the government care at all?
Price of one thing has come down, that is the lives of people. They are dying like flies on the roads, in the hands of unknown killers, in accidents, and of diseases, which can be prevented. But the government has no headache about that, because people do not count. In the face of all these, the government shows the audacity to say that it is doing everything to make people happy!
