It will be foolish for the ruling elites in Pakistan to think that the anguish faced by the millions of flood victims will not turn into anger against those who have the very job to protect the vulnerable.
The man who set himself on fire outside Prime Minister's Gilani's house is not the only father of four left incapable by the floods to cater for his househld. There are million others and they may not direct their frustration at themselves. They may turn into rage against the civil and military elite that has denied the poor their fare share.
It is still not too late to return to the very poor of Pakistan what was there to begin with.
