Pyongyang, October 29 (KCNA) — The increasing number of lunatics has become a serious social issue in South Korea.
This is an inevitable consequence of corrupt politics and anti-social policy of the ruling quarters, say papers here today.
A signed commentary of Rodong Sinmun says:
The present South Korean ruling quarters are pursuing a flunkeyist and traitorous fascist politics of dependence on outsiders which can put the successive dictators into the shade.
In South Korea national independence and dignity have been wantonly trampled down and the number of the absolute poor has increased more than three times since it was placed under the trusteeship of the International Monetary Fund.
Over 13 million people live below the poverty line and two-third of the workers are just like the unemployed.
Lunatics are increasing in South Korea due to the evil politics of the ruling quarters and many of them are committing suicide.
Seized with despair caused by their hopeless life, 1.1 million people have become lunatics. This has become a serious social issue in South Korea. Nevertheless, the chief executive is crying that the living standard of people is “improving.”
This is an unpardonable mockery and insult to the people.
With no juggling of words can the South Korean authorities escape from the criminal responsibility for inflicting sufferings upon the people.
A signed commentary of Minju Joson stresses that the history will not forgive the “people”-veiled ruling quarters of South Korea for having turned South Korea into a “nidus of diseases”.
