This is an important concern raised by the Unitech students and that the consequences of inflation is felt hard by everyone. These are hard economic times when the working class salary is short lived in the pockets for couple of days only due to the high prices. Parents are not able to afford school fees because at the least they can't afford a packet of rice as a delicacy.

But unfortunately inflation is driven by the global supply and demand chain and is currently felt hard even by the developed economies and are at the brink of recession. But this does not mean that PNG can't reputtably manage. The PNG economy is said to be growing due to the mineral resource boom but this may not be sustained because this growth is not decisively invested in its social infrastructure to grow other sectors of the economy and alleviate poverty.

The people of PNG and enga in this case are suffering from lack of essential social services and honest leadership. One mere fact will remain clear for decades through the spectrum of time and that is PNGuineans have been robbed and denied development by their own claimed leaders. Innocent PNGuineans are dying in poverty from the corrupt sins of some of our own leaders.

And this calls for oneness in thought!!! For both students and the working class to think alike and work together for the common good on issues like this, especially for the good of the bulk rural population. The SRC/NUS should try to lobby support from the trucking companies, chamber of commerce etc. In order to do this, the NUS/SRC should be forward thinking and make prudent strategies that the students don't jeopardise their studies, because you do want to fight for a worth cause and still able to go out in flying colours at the end of this year. NUS/SRC should faciliate meetings with economists and business experts in your universities to come up with proposals to present to the government. Students are truly the future capital asset and the leaders of this young country and that you will gain respect if the student leaders do think strategically.

Finally we need to change this trend of corrupt and vissionless leadership. To be victorious, we need to first fight the battle of honesty within self and develop the virtue of patience and learn to respect; and serve with sincerity where we are called to serve in society.
