HASILPUR-The objective behind the establishment of Sasta Ramazan Bazaars is to provide daily-use items to the public on subsidised rates.

Inspecting prices and quality of edibles at a bazaar here the other day, Assistant Commissioner Waseem Anwar Khan said that on the directives of Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Sasta Ramazan Bazaars have been established in different areas of tehsil Hasilpur. He pledged that the provision of foodstuffs on subsidised rates at the bazaars will also be ensured at all cost. “All the daily-use items are available at the bazaars on cheaper rates than markets,” he claimed, adding that two fair price shops have also been set up to provide necessities of life to the public on wholesale rates.

The AC informed that on behalf of the health department, a medical camp has been set up with 24-hour presence of a doctor, a dispenser and an LHV at the bazaar. Talking about the security and monitoring of the bazaars, he informed that complaint cells, monitoring desks and CCTV cameras have been installed at the bazaars to respond to complaints of the consumers and take action against the profiteers and over-chargers.
