The high price and shortage of bread, the main sustenance for the majority of Iranians, is clear evidence of the economic bankruptcy of the mullah regime, which has institutionalized rampant corruption and theft, plundering the nation’s people.
Iranians are suffering from the lack of bread and its high prices in a number of regions, including Urmia, Tabriz, Karaj, Shahriar, Mahdasht, Lorestan, Neka, Kurdistan, Mashhad and elsewhere.
There was no shortage of bread in some areas, such as Zabol and Mashhad, but the prices increased. Bread prices in major cities increased by 30 to 50 percent.
Some bakeries have even closed their doors in some cities, including Karaj and Neka, due to the lack of flour.
Meanwhile, bread is sold only to a limited number in some other cities, such as Urmia and Marivan, while Kurdistan witnessed people queuing for several hours in lines.
In this regard, the government newspaper Javan wrote, “The problem of bread in Urmia has worsened to the point that some citizens sell the 10 loaves for 10,000 tomans using a mobile phone app.”
On this topic, Jabbar Kouchaki Nejad, an Iranian representative from Rasht, told Glatt News, “We have currently stored 14,000,000 tons of wheat in the country, while our annual consumption is estimated at 12,000,000 tons. In addition to organizing, we have a reserve of wheat, and the problem is the distribution system.”
As a result, Iranian newspapers run by the mullah regime have warned of large protests and unrest due to the economic and social crises and the way the government is dealing with the corona crisis, as well as mismanagement.
An article published in the government newspaper Arman considered that the Iranians are not satisfied, as the country’s problems are due to the lack of contact with the outside world.
The article pointed out that our problems occurred because Iranians lost contact with the international community, adding that the mullah regime does not understand they are on the same boat.
Iranian officials have bragged about the end of the international arms embargo imposed on Iran, and President Hassan Rouhani said the people would be happy.
However, the government newspaper Etemad wrote the opposite, saying in a report that contrary to the president’s opinion, the lifting of the arms embargo is not good news for the public, but rather it was met with serious criticism on social media.
Meanwhile, the government newspaper Jahan-e Sanat said that “Rouhani’s announcement that the day after the end of the arms embargo Iran will be able to buy and sell weapons is not good news for the people, at least in the current economic situation.” It added that the president should listen to the screams and complaints of the people about the economy he is responsible for.
Jahan-e Sanat warned officials of the possibility of major protests due to economic and social problems.
The newspaper said, “There is no doubt that the continuing economic recession, emptying of the government and central bank’s treasury of the rial and the dollar, and the insufficient allocation of resources to various groups are among the most important causes of societal violence.”
Iranians are struggling to make ends meet as the corona virus crisis, oil price shock and mismanagement ravage the country’s economy.
The Statistical Center of Iran revealed that food inflation rates rose by 26 percent at the end of the summer of this year.
Some Iranians are unable to buy even a single egg, and their dining tables are almost empty, as prices continue to rise.
