What was the biggest financial blow you had to endure in 2012?
Last year's economic situation and tremendous price rise hit me very hard. I am a poor man and have to earn my living by pulling rickshaw. As the prices of the things are increasing day by day, it is becoming very hard to run my family in this small income. So we have to raise the fares at some places, but still it does not make up for our needs.
Would you welcome a tax on the super rich?
Yes, should be more tax on rich.
What would you most like the finance minister to do in his upcoming budget?
This year I would expect that the prices of various commodities which need in daily life should come down. There should be measures to bring prices. I would request the government to look after us and help us financially from the budget allocations.
