It is no secret that the Iranian people are enduring extremely harsh conditions and suffering from rampant poverty.
Moreover, they face severe water scarcity. The responsible party for this ongoing and escalating crisis is the regime, which is plundering the country’s resources to provide a comfortable life for its supporters in foreign countries.
The regime’s mismanagement has significantly contributed to the deterioration of living conditions. High unemployment rates and increasing levels of poverty afflict the population, leaving many struggling to fulfill their basic needs.
Furthermore, the economic constraints and political dynamics of the regime have worsened these challenges, creating a cycle of hardship for the Iranian people.
Moreover, the scarcity of water, a crucial resource for all living beings, has been further aggravated by the regime’s negligence and exploitation. The regime’s destruction of the country’s water resources has resulted in the depletion of water supplies.
People are openly discussing this critical situation on the streets, during protests, and on social media platforms. Sometimes, they express their frustration through bitter jokes.
However, in the past year, particularly after the recent protests, many experts and officials within the regime have also joined this campaign, expressing their own frustration and fear regarding the consequences of this situation.
Abdolnasser Derakhshan, a member of the regime’s parliament representing the Sistan and Baluchestan province, referred to the regime’s president, Ebrahim Raisi, as well as the Minister of Economy and the Minister of Agriculture.
He stated that bread is now the only thing left on people’s tables, and even many of them cannot afford it anymore.
He mentioned that the government is unable to implement bread subsidies due to the lack of infrastructure, particularly in rural areas where many people reside.
Additionally, he stated that local officials cannot provide support because many individuals are unregistered and lack birth certificates or identification cards. He further emphasized that burdensome and disorganized taxes have put immense pressure on the people.
Mohammad Mehdi Zahedi, the representative for Kerman in the regime’s parliament, discussed the critical water conditions in the Kerman province. He stated that a significant portion of the province lacks access to clean drinking water, and the situation has surpassed all critical levels.
Desperately, he urged the regime’s leader to promptly implement and complete the water transfer project from the Persian Gulf to avoid the impending consequences on the regime’s security, especially in light of recent protests related to this issue.
Farhad Bashiri, a member of the parliament, called upon the economic team of the regime’s president to take more decisive action. He issued a warning that immediate measures need to be taken to improve the country’s economic conditions.
He further emphasized that the devaluation of the national currency has added additional pressure on the hardworking class and the impoverished. Finally, he stressed that the government must purchase wheat from the country’s farmers and promptly settle their unpaid incomes and debts.
Mansour Ali Zaree, another member of the regime’s parliament, expressed concerns regarding the regime’s import policies, particularly the reduction in taxes on imported goods.
He highlighted that these policies have raised concerns among the country’s farmers, as they are unable to compete with these products.
He then criticized the government’s lack of support for the country’s farmers, which is leading to the decline of domestic production and posing a significant threat to agricultural independence and the people’s future.
Likewise, he revealed that over 100,000 tons of rice produced in Mazandaran is currently stored without any buyers, despite the parliament’s approval to decrease the price of domestic rice.
