Will not relent until those involved in artificial price hikes are not punished: PM
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday that he will “not relent until all involved in artificially-created price hikes are identified & punished”.
Taking to Twitter, the prime minister credited the government for reducing prices of vegetables and other food items. He assured the masses that those who were behind the artificial price hike will be identified and punished.
“As a result of Govt focus on price control, substantial decrease in prices, especially in vegetable prices, can now be seen. I assure our people that I will not relent until all involved in artificially-created price hikes are identified & punished,” he tweeted.
Prices of wheat and sugar skyrocketed last month after the food items disappeared from markets across the country. A report forwarded to the prime minister blamed government officials and politicians responsible for the crisis. – Statesman
