    Why don't the government gives car permits to everybody in the country. Since the government has addressed all other issues in the country, car permits are the only issue that needs to be addressed.

    First of all, see that the poor masses are fed properly, dressed properly and have a shelter properly. Then go for Vehicle permits for the Govt. servants.
