Prime Minister Imran Khan has directed Tiger Force to keep a check on the prices of essential commodities in their localities.

Taking to his Twitter handle, Imran Khan said:

“On coming Saturday I will be meeting with our Tiger Force at the Convention Centre. From now till then I want our Tiger Force to regularly check prices of daal, atta, sugar, ghee in their localities & post on the Tiger Force portal. Will discuss in Saturday mtg.”

Earlier Prime Minister Imran Khan said the government will use all of the resources at the state’s disposal to bring down food prices beginning tomorrow (Monday).

On Twitter, the Prime Minister said the government was already examining causes of the price hikes. “We are already examining causes of the price hikes: whether there is a genuine supply shortage or simply hoarding by mafias; smuggling, if any; or a price rise due to international prices such as for palm oil, lentils etc,” he tweeted.

He said that from next week, the government will have its strategy in place and action would begin, using all state organizations and resources, to bring down food prices.

Prime Minister Khan took strict notice of the excessive pricing of consumable items at motorway rest areas and directed authorities to introduce regular monitoring and take stringent action against overcharging shopkeepers.
