Cement price

The price of cement keeps going up, while the government is implementing a program to provide cheap houses for millions of poor people.

Everybody knows what this means. Developers or contractors who build the houses will also increase their price and finally poor people will have to suffer the price hike. Businessmen should be conscientious and be aware of the suffering of the poor. By keeping the price of houses out of the poor people's reach, millions of people will have to sleep like sardines in their small huts.

The government should punish shameless businessmen and ensure healthy competition in the market to enhance public welfare.
