Islamabad (HRNW) Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that his government will announce on Tuesday measures to reduce the prices of basic food items.
In a series of tweets on Sunday morning, the premier said he understand the difficulties people are going through because of inflation.
The measures he spoke about will be decided during a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.
He also said that the government is investigating the sugar and flour price hikes.
Inflation in Pakistan climbed to 14.6% in January, a 12-year high. This, coupled with the sugar and flour price hikes and higher tariffs on imported goods, has left consumers worried over how to make ends meet.
