May 2, 2022 01:11 PM
The sugar prices Monday saw a decline in open market as the 50-kg sugar pack price has been slashed by Rs250 in Lahore’s Akbari Mandi (open market), reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
The price of sugar decreased by Rs5 per kg to reach at Rs85/kg in the open market.
Pertinent to note that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had placed a ban on the sugar export soon after taking office.
On the other hand, subsidized ghee and cooking oil that were supposed to be available in Eid holidays are now completely wiped out from the Utility Stores Corporation outlets.
A number of citizens told 24 News that they have been bringing CNIC to the utility stores but could not find the ghee and cooking oil to their utter disappointment for the last 15 days.
People have urged the government to look into the matter of unavailability of oil and ghee at the Utility stores branches.
