    In the UK an average person as a labourer earns £60 a day which in Pakistani rupees equals to Rs. 15300. Does in Pakistan a labourer earn such amount?

    This is a bullshit story. Kindly compare the per Capita income of Pakistan with these countries.

    Very well done doing a dumb comparison, this is just to make Pakistan feel good about themselves, I have seen it so much, only compare everything against countries where it makes Pakistan look good! Covid relief packages and prices of products plus many others. I still hope for the best.
