PM Khan to Announce Major Price Cuts for Food Items Tomorrow

Prime Minister Imran Khan is going to make key decisions related to price cuts on essential commodities when his federal cabinet meets on Tuesday.

The premier said this in a tweet on Sunday, adding that he has formed a probe committee to find out the causes behind the hikes in flour and sugar prices.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, the premier said that he is fully aware of the problems faced by the masses due to massive inflation and has decided to take measures to control it.

I understand the difficulties ordinary people, including salaried class, are confronting and have decided, come what may, my government will be announcing various measures that will be taken to reduce prices of basic food items.

He mentioned that the government has started an in depth investigation to identify the culprits behind the price manipulation of wheat and sugar. Those found responsible will be severely punished, he added.

The nation should rest assured that all those responsible will be held accountable and penalized.

Note that the government has faced criticism due to the recent inflation wave shooting up to 14.6 percent, beating the last ten years' record.

Within the last three weeks, the government has faced an artificial wheat crisis followed by a sugar crunch, which not only affected the middle and the lower class but also raised questions on 'good' governance.

Taking over 15 months to realize his primary job, Khan has finally announced to take the required steps to provide relief to the poor.

He hinted at regulating prices of basic household items like flour, cooking oil, pulses, sugar, and rice, among other essential edibles.

PM Imran also promised to provide rations to those who cannot afford them through the Ehsaas program.
