Prices of goods of daily usage are increasing day by day in Turbat. Especially the prices of edible items are sky rocketing. Shopkeepers are increasing the prices of all products at their will and district administration is nowhere to be seen.
Holy Month of Ramzan has started and the shopkeepers have started their exploitative practices with it. In civilized societies prices of products are reduced by the shopkeepers during months of religious rituals and festivals.
District administration should ensure that all shopkeepers in Turbat city should abide by the Price list approved by the administration. Any shopkeeper found violating the price list must be penalized according to the law of the land. At the same time Utility stores should also sell all the necessary products to the people at discounted prices.
