Prime Minister's excuses for hike in sugar price:
1) the government could not effectively channel the subsidy to the intended needy parties. and you, despite the extra bucks you are expected to fork out, does not fall under needy category.
2) our law enforcers failed to curb smuggling activities, therefore you - the commoner gets punished.
3) sugar is bad for your health. the government is increasing the price of sugar primarily taking into consideration your health and well-being. (the lamest excuse i've ever heard)
Right, he is hoping that everyone is as stupid as his cabinet. Go figure.
