THE month of Ramazan is sacred for Muslims because they fast and care for everything, but it is disappointing that the government has not announced special packages as yet.
It is also an old practice that the prices of goods go up specially during Ramazan. The poor cannot afford the expenditure of Ramazan because of high price of commodities. Thus they pass these days with difficulty.
The prime minister should announce such packages for this month as would decrease the burden of rising prices on the poor.
