Something dramatic could happen at the National Assembly building today. And, also, on June 24. Is it even necessary?
When the rich do not think about the poor, such measures stare straight into our faces. This is where we have arrived at in the scheme of the bigger narrative line of the nation’s development.
Subsidy is no more relevant in our society because we are so very confused where it must go to. What was arranged in the days gone by has lost its meaning this day when every individual can afford to buy the most expensive cars and can settle for the most plush homes and lifestyles.
But we have left good proportion of our people below the poverty line.
LPG subsidy can and must be done away with. In the age when we are the most prolific producer of clean and green energy, why must we settle for the second best?
The drama has a meaning, though. It always has.
The while we think about the welfare of our public servants, are we not forgetting the plight of the common citizens?
It is interesting the way the debate among the lawmakers is unfolding – the power of waste that creates the energy is the same.
The time has come to stand on our own feet. How do our honourable members of the Parliament see it? When we can supply electricity to the last home in the last village of the country, why is LPG shortage a problem? Energy is important, but are we not forgetting our bigger national priorities?
Making the MPs gather before the National Assembly building just to convince the people to be more thoughtful is an insult on our own value that stresses on common-flourishing. Better than that, we can save our faces by strengthening the distribution system that is at the core of the problem today.
If we fail to address a system that is not working, and is not serving the very purpose it was designed for, the time to rethink has arrived at the door. The way we are doing it is ridiculous.
