MQM condemns fuel price hike


The Rabita Committee of the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) condemned on Wednesday the government’s recent increase in oil and gas prices, saying that this move would further increase the problems for the masses.
“The problems being faced by the public would increase manifold as the sharp increase in POL and CNG prices would erode their power to purchase even items of basic need,” it said in a statement. The committee said the economic policies of the country should be formulated for the benefit of the people, but the government is continuously increasing POL prices and it should withdraw its recent notification.
