Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur, while addressing a gathering in Azad Kashmir said, “Today we say that sugar has become expensive. Can’t we sacrifice a little and reduce the quantity of sugar in our tea and eat less bread?”
He was referring to the rising inflation in the country.
“Have we become so selfish that we can not sacrifice a little for our nation? If there is nine per cent inflation, I eat 100 bites of bread, can’t I eat nine fewer bites of the bread and give this sacrifice for my nation?”
“Now we need to make a decision. Whether we want freedom and a tax-free nation for our children, not the kind where we worry that we have to pay back to America and not be fearful of drone attacks,” said Gandapur.
