High prices at Ramazan Bazaars vex customers
June 6, 2016
LAHORE (92 News) – The Prices of commodities at Ramazan Bazaars are beyond the reach of an average consumer in various cities including Lahore. Ramazan is supposed to be a month of charity and blessings, but in Pakistan, it becomes a time of spiraling food prices and hoarding, with many essential items becoming out of reach. In order to provide some sort of relief to people, Ramazan Bazaars are being setup during Ramazan, however, the bazaars failed at providing any reprieve from the sky-high inflation. Profiteers again found a way to jack up prices by creating artificial shortage of commodities in local markets to raise prices in Ramazan and the government’s claim of regulating prices of essential commodities seems farcical.
