Sahulat bazaars: Vegetable stalls yet to be set up

June 28, 2021

LAHORE:The government is not taking interest to check inflation. High prices of commodities are affecting consumers. The elected representatives have failed to settle the price fixation issue.

The government has yet to accept the demand for setting up vegetable counters at Sahulat bazaars. The staff deputed at Chungi Dogage Sahulat bazaars said they were repeatedly reporting to the Town Hall about unavailability of vegetable stalls in the bazaars but the district administration was giving no attention to their requests. They said fruit sellers were allotted stalls on "reference" and they were involved in overcharging but no action was taken against them. They refused to sell fruits on official rates. Similar situation was observed at Bhatta Chowk Sahulat bazaars.
