Meat prices go up

Meat prices have increased in the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad and butchers fear that it will further go up in Ramazan. Butchers are selling mutton at Rs500 to Rs540 per kg and beef at Rs 320-Rs340 per kg in different markets of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.
The mutton was being sold at Rs450 and beef at Rs250 per kg a month ago. The official price of mutton is Rs370 per kg and beef is Rs200 per kg in Rawalpindi. The butchers, however, feared the prices of meat would further escalate in coming days. They said that the price of mutton would reach to Rs600 per kg next month.
People expressed resentments over the increase in prices of meat and urged the government to rein in price hike. All Pakistan Jamiatul Quresh Meat Welfare Association President Khurshid Ahmed Quershi said that due to a shortage of animals in the market, the butchers increased the price of mutton and beef in the local market.
