LAHORE:No relief to the masses from the growing inflation of the seasonal vegetables and fruits as no vegetable was available below Rs200 per kilogram in the provincial metropolis.
Besides, massive unabated overcharging along with the increasing rates persisted as the district administration has completely failed to control this situation. Interestingly, there is no mechanism to make a complaint of overcharging against vendors while the government official didn’t take any action against the shopkeepers.
All type of meat sold higher than the official rates while the administration was fully aware of it but didn’t take action against the meat sellers. This raises the question of their ability or some ‘wrongdoing’ in it.
