5:48 pm
. that's a huge number. these banks also include banks like the state bank of india, which is not just the largest public sector bank in india. it is the largest lender in india. apart from banks, there are other financial institutions also involved in their behemoths. for example, the life insurance corporation of india, which is india's largest insurer, it is also state run. so there's a lot of public money also involved as far as this exposure, good on a group is consensus set, we're definitely an issue of national concern. that's the reason why now the issue has come up to the parliament and the opposition has just demanded approval either by a supreme the supreme court or by a parliamentary panel. chris, danny is active in a wide range of sectors. what would extended problems at the conglomerate mean for people's lives? well, that's true or chris or danny is active in a lot of sectors. these include from boards to mining,
5:49 pm
to energy and even to media. now, lot of these sectors are very critical in frustrate sector infrastructure sectors. so if god forbid, if the group crashes oh and a meltdown, the stock market are an indicator of what is about to happen. there's any kind of massive economic crisis that will hit the these infrastructure sectors. so operations in critical infrastructure sectors will be hit, jobs will be lost since there's a lot of public money involved. so apart from their direct hit that consumers will take, apart from that, there's a lot of public money, which is also at stake. so yeah, definitely this is off national importance and which is why the issue has even reached the parliament now chris, danny has called this fraud allegations a court attack on india. is this becoming a political issue? it certainly has become a political issue. it's an issue of national proportions,
5:50 pm
but the attorney grew by calling it an attack on india is merely trying to hide behind this nationalism of rhetoric that has been, that has permeated the political discourse on the country in the last couple of years. now this also reflects the allegations against the group of being closely connected with the, with the ruling govern job lead government at the center. and the group chairman, a donnie go to my donnie's personal closeness perceived personal closeness to prime minister in ramadi. now critics and, and also said that this is the reason why about why in spite of these widespread allegations and these allegations have been around for several years. hindenburg has only short as only makes us a bit of the crisis and are apart from ins. in spite of all of these allegations that has been no cracked down by the market regulator say b. so all of these things do indicate that, that, that there's a, there's a lot of politics also behind what is happening with your danny group. chris charter, gay and delhi, tara,

thank you. the floods last year have made an already dar economic situation. even worse, inflation nowadays is that a 48 year high and food prices are up by 43 percent. the pakistani government is hoping that a deal with the international monetary fund can come to the rescue. driving a rick shaw through the busy streets of karachi, brings in the only income for the young man and his family. his work has to cover all expenses, groceries, housing in school fees for 6 children. but since prices have been rising, it's getting harder every day to make ends meet. a spat and gloom all around petrol, so expensive, it's gone beyond our reach. now i think it would be better to take my vehicle off the road because what's the point of driving if i can't earn anything? i'll try to find some other work. if i can't, it's reached the stage where i'll have to resort to begging the government hiked up
5:52 pm
gas prices by more than 15 percent on sunday to $250.00 rupees or $1.00 later, after the country's currency value plummeted last week. rising prices for gas continue to fuel inflation. life is getting expensive for 0. yeah, i met with douglas costs 50 rupees, a kilo. now it costs a $100.00 rupees, twice as much. how can i buy it? i just have to buy a quarter kilo because whatever i earned has gone on fuel. the pakistani government is now hoping for further aid from the international monetary fund representatives of the i, m f i there this week to discuss a deal. they'll expect reforms in return, and that means debt reduction less spending higher taxes. citizens will have to be the burden. a common man is sophie, and i'm expecting that probably the people will be on the road for the best because that is sent hike in the price is completely unjustified. and i'm sure that the gum
5:53 pm
it is solving what the i am of his sin. and in coming days we are expecting that there will be more food rise, hike and her that will be ah, so now me in pakistan around 230000000 people live in pakistan. not all of them earn as little as they are met. but many a poor, they are the ones who already suffer most and will continue to be hardest hit by inflation. and let's get more in this. so from my colleague water emron, i wasn't good to have you here in the studio inflation in pakistan, at a 48 year high at more than 27 percent. tell us more on what that does to the people, the country, the situation is dire. the people are struggling in ways that i can't even explain it because they can't afford isic food, a health care or even medicine things. the alice were expecting that it wouldn't even touch 26 percent inflation rate, but it's so much higher than expected. urban inflation is sitting on above 24
5:54 pm
percent rural inflation numbers, even more shocking, more than 32 percent. it's become so expensive to buy anything. the weed shortage is ailing the economy. so i think it's, it's a tough time and energy prices are skyrocketing, so we'll have to see how this goes. a lot seems to be hanging on this sir ballard package. sure. from the i m. f tours have been stalled. but nevertheless, would that package be enough to successfully complete the 9th review of the i, m f. t arcs would actually be really, really helpful to the pakistani government. what it would do is actually bring in the next tranche of the i m f dollars and also encourage friendly countries like saudi and china, commercial banks. to be more open because this i am as successful review would kind of be like a kind of confidence in the economy. so feel like it would actually have a really positive environment. but the i m f. condition that they're imposing the removal of subsidies and introducing higher prices. this is going to bite the people really, really hard. so i think it's

a brace for impact situation or emron from dw business. thank you very much. it's the spain now and people there are outreach. the prices for olive oil and the central for the spanish regime have increased by 50 percent within one year. our reporter try to find out why the all, if harvest is almost complete, was the shortest harvest and lowest yield in a long time, with thousands of farmers in the countryside around soviet le out why? because of the lack of water of the olives did not take on the black collar, they should have also, they are smaller and the fat content is lower. all this affects profitability smaller harvest, but a better price per kilo. however, that only partially compensates for the poor cropped. sina cannot godaddy. i'm relaxing without these prices. we would not even harvest at all. it just wouldn't
5:56 pm
be worth picking the olive cigarette laguna. the harvest is so poor because it hasn't rained in months and the temperatures have been high. it was clear early on that the production of olive oil would be reduced. now there is a shortfall of more than $600000.00 tons on the world market. that only a dollar amanda at the moment we're noticing that demand is falling because oil is becoming more expensive. yarbrough global consumption must have fallen by around 30 percent because there simply isn't enough production as in every dollar bug. and i notice you vision the brovio produces and, and lucia could survive one bad harvest. but the next few years could again be too hot and to dry. more and more olive trees are being artificially irrigated. and that sets a vicious cycle in motion. look as see i north yeah. whitely are facing our higher temperatures and increasing water shortages are at a printer. but bank, this is what the future looks like and it is very worrying. we got
