Karachi’s transporters have rejected the Rs6 increase in petrol prices. Petrol will now cost Rs98.89 after the increase.

SAMAA TV spoke to Irshad Bukhari, the head of the Karachi Transport Ittehad, a transporters’ union, about the increase and how the city’s transporters are reacting to it.

He said that for now, they aren’t increasing fares but the need has definitely been created. We now have the right to raise fares, he said.

They want the government to take the increase back. Bukhari called it an act of cruelty against transporters and the public.
