Everyone is groaning. Because the producers cannot produce, the citizens cannot afford it. Everyone is in great distress. Some people may have dry salt, but the citizens have bread.” He is waiting to buy stale bread. Even half a liter of water is 3 liras, and the price of the citizen cannot come close to the price of meat, which is expensive. The diesel used by the producer is increasing every day, like a passion fruit, like the numerator, it stood at 30 liras. Last year it was 6 liras, this year it was almost It has become 30 liras. It has increased by 5 times. At this price, the manufacturer cannot even turn the ignition of the tractor. Hear the cry of the manufacturer, the citizen is devastated. Will our people eat stones?
