The catastrophic poverty has brought Pakistan to fight various critical issues and conditions. Approximately, 7 million Pakistanis are living below the poverty line which has also been counterproductive for the national economy resulting inflation in the country. Lack of food, shelter and the other biological needs have been the problems of the public ever since the PPP came into being.
It is too hard for a common individual to get three times food. They even can’t respond to the liabilities of their children’s education, health and protection of their lives. One of the most famous examples of that is high fee structure of public schools where parents can’t afford due to limited sources of income.
In today’s Pakistan about 4 million children under the age of 7 to 14 years are doing hard labour to earn money which later turns them into criminals and extremists. The problem has already caused much destruction, but, if this issue is still not resolved, it may cause a huge problem for the whole nation. The government is supposed to take very solid measures to solve this issue in no time to save the country.
