They are very affected by this crisis. The salary announced by the government is 32 thousand which no one is getting. A person who lives in a rented house will pay house rent, take ration and pay school fees of children in these thirty two thousand. In these conditions, not only life is difficult, but death is also difficult. Inflation rate is more than 40% while wages have decreased by 60%.
