Prices of Roti, Naan increased sans government’s nod

October 3, 2022 02:18 PM


People have now started feeling the aftershocks of elimination of subsidy on flour as the Muttahida Naan Roti Association, Lahore neither sought permission nor waited for the government’s notification and went ahead with increasing the prices of Naan and Roti by Rs7 and Rs5, respectively, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Monday.

Now contrary to the government’s rate list, according to which a Roti’s price is Rs10 while that of a Naan is Rs18, 100 grams of Roti will now be available at Rs15 while Sada Naan of 120 grams at Rs25. 

While both the district administration and price control magistrates are acting like mute spectators. 

Talking to 24News, a Naanbai said how could he sell Roti at cheaper rates when he was purchasing flour at expensive rates after the subsidy was over? 

He went on to say that the price of a bag of fine flour had gone up from Rs7, 000 to Rs9, 000. 

A citizen asked the Punjab government to spend the public money on masses rather than spending it on the renovation of the Punjab Assembly.
