The innocent citizens are deprived from their very incipient needs like shelter, clothing, food and etc. However, the hazardous poverty has made people so fed-up that they feel compelled to commit suicide. Nevertheless, in 2010, the poverty rate had been 85.00% while in 2011, it was 83.40%. Shockingly, the rate of poverty in 2013 was estimated near 79.50% and in 2015, it was 75.40%. The raising poverty is enhancing the difficulties for the citizens and the country also.
