Subsidy Reforms Started

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today announced the start of the implementation of the long-awaited subsidy reforms. The reforms, which include the gradual removal of the government subsidies for 16 major products such as gasoline, have become the hallmark of Ahmadinejad’s second term, with their success or failure expected to define his presidency. The government subsidies now cost the government some $100 billion annually and their removal is expected to jumpstart a period of economic boom in the country. The new prices for the products affected by subsidy removal are to be released late Saturday night.

Be careful about bastardley reportings of the BBC.

They (BBC) are trying to instigate bloodshed in Iran in order to divert from their own turmopil and rioting students

no bloodshed is already done by Khamenei, no need for the BBC to do anything here. Have you forgotten how
afraid your Khamenei is of its own people.
