PM

ISLAMABAD, Oct 10 (APP): Prime Minister Imran Khan Saturday said that the government would use all of the resources at the state’s disposal to bring down food prices by Monday.

On Twitter, the prime minister said the government was already examining causes of the price hikes.

“We are already examining causes of the price hikes: whether there is a genuine supply shortage or simply hoarding by mafias; smuggling, if any; or a price rise due to international prices such as for palm oil, lentils etc,” he remarked.
