Tehran, July 6, IRNA -- The English language paper Iran Daily in its Press Panorama column to be published on Monday has reviewed several Persian newspapers:

Large gap between MPs’ approaches and people’s demands

Ebtekar: The approaches of some lawmakers not only do not match people’s expectations, but are at times contradictory.

Since President Hassan Rouhani took office in August 2013, some MPs have made anti-government remarks, which are in blatant violation of public demands.

The views of certain parliamentarians show as if they do not have care about ignoring people’s expectations.

Although an overwhelming majority of university students are satisfied with the performance of the Science Minister Reza Faraji Dana, some MPs are gearing up to remove him from office.

Likewise, art and culture advocates have supported Culture Minister Ali Jannati, but lawmakers pick on him under different pretexts.

Moreover, some parliamentarians in the legislative body spare no efforts to tarnish the image of nuclear negotiators who have been supported by the Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

Also, Rouhani has often been the target of mudslinging campaigns waged by supporters (in the Majlis) of ex-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Such MPs need to review the Constitution to find out what their duties toward people are.

Veep: Plans for orphans needed

Kar-o-Kargar: First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri paid a visit to a nursery in Tehran, accompanied by a number of senior government officials.

Pointing to lack of manpower for taking care of orphans in Ameneh Nursery, Jahangiri urged State Welfare Organization (SWO) to take measures in this regard.

The veep called for improving conditions for fostering children. He also noted that the government should devise comprehensive approaches for this stratum.

"The SWO should draw up plans to help orphans set up a business for themselves after leaving the nursery," Jahangiri said.

Auto industry on wrong path

Khorasan: Iran's auto industry is entangled with cumbersome regulations.

A significant number of Iranians are fed up with low-quality and improper after-sale services.

Since two major automakers, namely Iran Khodro and SAIPA, have monopolized the country's auto industry, lack of rivalry has created many problems and adversely affected the quality of domestic cars.

The government has put forward plans to establish a third hub of car production to end this monopoly.

Although such a plan might help blunt the fallout of the monopolized industry, there are fears that the new hub will only add insult to injury.

In order to rectify the situation, the government should devise comprehensive regulations and oblige auto manufacturers to comply with the latest standards.

Ending recession with state support

Arman: Ending recession and curbing inflation top the government's agenda, although it lacks the means to fulfill its objectives simultaneously.

The administration managed to blunt rising inflation, but the prices of commodities have surged compared with the previous year.

If the government makes attempts to contain inflation by official orders, an imbalance between supply and demand will damage the production sector.

By making endeavors to reduce inflation through state pressure, recession will cast its shadow on the manufacturing sector.

In order to combat recession, the government should not force producers to keep prices down, as it will have inevitable consequences. This is necessary to revive the economy.

Economic recovery is like surgery that is accompanied by "bloodshed".
