Soaring food prices and helpless people

AS it has been happening over the years, prices of essentials are rising alarmingly and with Eid-ul-Azha only three weeks away, a group of unscrupulous traders are pushing the prices up by hoarding and fleecing the helpless consumers.  It looks like the government is as helpless as the consumers. Successive governments have failed to keep prices under check particularly at times of Eid festivals. But as a matter of hope against hope, we only wish that the government will be able to bring stability to the kitchen market so that the common people can have a sigh of relief.
