Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan has ensured crackdown in the month of Ramazan against those found hoarding and profiteering on daily food items.

“We have passed a bill and will take exemplary action against price hikers,” CM Khan said at a press conference on Thursday.

On 18 April, Prime Minister Imran Khan also warned against hoarding. He said the federal government will draft a bill soon that will ensure strict punishments for offenders.

Many people are already facing financial issues because of the country-wide lockdown put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.

A Peshawar shopkeeper told SAMAA TV that the prices of gram flour, sugar, pulses and ghee have been increased.

A resident also complained that the nation is already dealing with a crisis, the authorities must ensure that prices aren’t artificially inflated too.
