Citizens suffer as vendors refuse to sell milk at fixed price
KARACHI (92 News) – Retailers have stopped the sale of milk in protest against the directive of the Sindh High Court to sell the commodity at Rs 85 per liter.
They told 92 News that they could not comply with the government directive after purchasing milk at Rs 95 per litre.
Residents were unable to purchase milk and yogurt after vendors shut down their shops, putting up notices saying ‘Sorry consumers’.
The metropolis’s daily milk demand is estimated at 4.5 million liters and supply at 3.5 million liters.
The Milk Retailers’ Association has said they cannot sell at prices set by the government while their purchase prices remain high.
