The second decade of Ramadan, the month of blessings and blessings, has come to an end. The prices of vegetables, fruits, and poultry have skyrocketed, with lemons reaching Rs. 600 per kg.
The city is still in the grip of profiteering. The prices of vegetables, fruits, and poultry have not come down. Lemons in the city reached Rs. 600 per kg. Chicken meat also rose by Rs. 5 to Rs. 249 per kg.
Citizens are worried about the rising inflation and at the same time, vegetable and fruit sellers are dissatisfied with the government. Fruit and vegetable sellers say that the government should first control the prices in the vegetable and fruit markets in order to implement the government price list.
On the other hand, President of Federation of Pakistan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mian Anjum Nisar, demanded to increase the interest rate to 5%.
Mian Anjum Nisar said that traders and industrialists are already worried due to Coronavirus, in which case the government has to provide relief to run industries.
