In my country, our prime minister had been setup new vision which name as "people 1st performance now". The main motive of this vision is want to fulfill all mankind need and united together for achieving the biggest challenge vision "2020".To implement this vision, they have established "NKRA" association (Nation key result area).This party responsibility to implement and run all the frameworks of this vision. Recently, the price of sugar had been increased due to the cut off of subsidy on sugar by government because they want implementing the campaign of sugarless in every single day.Because of the increasing price of sugar, some of the hawker was hike their goods price out of reasonable price.In fact, there is no any volunteer party come out to voice up for the illegally hike of goods price by irresponsible parties. As you are one's of the nation in my country, what should you do according to the this situation?

I find this a very amusing discussion indeed. It seems I have offended you in some way. Just to clear the air, I'm only offering my opinions and not telling you what to do. Here are my justifications. First, i said that the hawkers decision to raise the price of food is justifiable because the price of a key ingredient that they use has increased.Let me clarify that when i say justifiable i mean taking opportunity.I am not saying that hawkers are right in raising prices but rather they have been given the opportunity to raise prices. Therefore it is not really their fault. In the business world when there is an opportunity, then one must grab it. Even if those actions are not justifiable through normal reasoning. As for the elections, you ask what you should do according to the situation.. therefore i suggest that elections are just one of the ways for you to voice out your opinion by voting for the person whom you think will be mindful of the public's need. However as with all methods , a drop of water in the ocean will not make a big difference in a lake. However that drop of water will send ripples out across the surface. To answer your question again, 'what should you do according to this situation?' the answer is to voice out your opinion. Newspapers are a good way to start , by writing to the editorial columns. My concern with what's going on in your country is related to the funds. Where did the money that was saved by reducing sugar subsidy go to? If it was put to good use then maybe the pros outweight the cons?

oo... amusing!!! (=_+) Glad to meet you again. You look like royal in observing such issue. What i wrote is merely for peaceful discussion without any deceive comment to create out whisper. Your kindly comments from this issue which let me have a wide thinking. However, newspaper is not an effective way for those discussion. In our country mostly newspaper industry has been control strictly by government. Any comments which might be a risk or challenge the government empower will be eliminate by them.So, I have not opportunity to do that. Once we can do is talk on backward. This is only the way to release our anger and unsatisfied.(T_T) Thanks for the comment!! (=_+)

There have been few issues related to the increasing price of the petrol for the last few months..and now the government policy to reduce the subsidy for sugar seems like bring up a lot of concern too. So? What should we do? I have heard a lot of people comment about that, people started to complain this and that, implementation of government policy, selfish hawker and bla bla bla... My question is..did they talk to the right person? I saw people keep complaining among themselves, providing lots of comments and suggestions. The point is..as long as they didn't bring up the issues they having to the right authority, having discussion around just won't help. If we really care about something...talk to the right person..that's the way to effectively solve the problems.

From this I can conclude that your country's government is not as crazy or harsh as you make it out to be. At least you guys get the privelage of buying goods at subsidised prices. People from other countries might not be so lucky. Remember that it is a gain and loss situation. No I'm not talking about the reduce in the use of sugar for the benefit of your health. I'm talking about the funds. Maybe you could tell us about how the funds will be utilised now that the subsidy on a common household item has been decreased. As for the increase in the price of second tier goods that use sugar, well business is business. As you said , the actions of the restaurateur and hawkers are acutally justifiable. Look at situation from the hawker's point of view. Your question asking what action should be taken is a bit vague though. What can you do actually? Here's a tip - Elections. You have the right to vote.

Election!!! do you think election is an effective way to solute all the problem.Wakaka It Just waste citizen money and time. In another term 'throw money into the sea'. im so sorry to say like that its because there was not reliable and unjustified for me and only me for my nation too. Im so proud with your EXCELLENT thinking on the part of business which you mention that they are reasonable to hike their goods prices.In fact, 1 kilogram sugar just increased 20 sen.In the case, how many kilogram they will going use to serve 1 plate of food.so, Do you think it is reasonable or justiable for the hawkers or restaurants for hiking their goods price??? Thanks for the comment...
