DOUBLE standards are rampant in Pakistan as everyone has two faces. The cost of a roti is one rupee at the parliament’s cafeteria but it is sold outside for Rs6 for the common man. Similarly, a parliamentarian gets a monthly salary of Rs250,000 whereas a labourer works for Rs13,000.
There are two laws, one for the rich and the other for the poor.
If a common fruit seller takes Rs10 more than the actual profit, he is slapped with a fine of Rs10,000 or receives six months’ imprisonment or both, but a person involved in embezzlement of billions of rupees enters into a plea bargain and comes out without any punishment.
