Buzdar claims decrease in prices of essential commodities

Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar Saturday said that prices of essential commodities were being decreased through effective measures taken by the government. “Daily use items such as flour, sugar and other commodities are available in Punjab at fixed prices.”

Usman Buzdar said that the government was fully aware of the people’s problems and indiscriminate action was being taken against those involved in artificial price hike. He assured that the Ehsaas Ration Programme would provide relief to the people in a real sense. He lamented that the opposition parties had been engaged in political point-scoring on all the important national issues including coronavirus and dengue. “They are even making hullabaloo on price-hike issue just to gain political mileage. These elements have nothing to do with the people’s problems, and they are totally unaware of the basics of the economy. They are the ones who are trying to create hurdles in national progress. Those who are using negative tactics should remember that there is no room in Pakistan for their politics of do or die, resignations and long march,” he said.“The public resources were ruthlessly looted in the past and the former rulers used their offices for money laundering and kickbacks. 

The current government led by Prime Minister Imran Khan has laid the foundation for a transparent Pakistan,” he concluded.
