Prime Minister Imran Khan has taken notice of upward trend in the prices of essential commodities despite of the reduction in petroleum prices.
According to details, Prime Minister Imran Khan has taken strict notice no corresponding reduction in the prices of essential commodities despite of the fact that the federal government has reduced petroleum products prices drastically in the past few months amid the global pandemic.
Similarly, there is no logic as to why flour prices should increase when harvesting of the wheat crop has just recently been concluded. The provincial government shall strictly monitor the prices of essential commodities on daily basis and make every effort to pass on the benefits of fuel-price reduction to the common man.
PM Imran Khan has also directed National Price Monitoring Committee to monitor the prices of essential commodities, on weekly basis, as already directed by the Federal Cabinet, and devise mechanism to bring the prices of essential commodities.
