In view of the severe hardships due to the price hike in Paksitan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) governance, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has announced to substantially cut prices of fuel and electricity after taking oath, adding that he has been ruthlessly criticizing inflation.

According to sources, in order to give relief to the public, reduction in price hike is inevitable. It is believed that quantum of cut in prices will be stunning that will comfort the general public.

Sources said that Imran commended the proposal to give relief by reducing prices of the product commonly used by all; and by doing so it will leave positive impacts as well as will impede further price hike.

Sources said that party leadership explained to the party chairman that petrol is being sold for $53 per barrel in international market and government of Pakistan snatches 35% to 40% from the poor under the pretext of sales tax. Likewise previous government increased Rs. 7 per unit in electricity charges that resulted into the suffering of the poorer.
