Petrol price hike challenged in LHC

Lahore (HRNW) The rise in the prices of petrol was challenged in the Lahore High Court on Tuesday.

Advocate Azhar Siddiq filed a petition in court on behalf of the judicial activism panel.

The petition highlights how the price of petrol in the world market is decreasing, but the incumbent government still chose to increase the price.

It adds that increasing the price of petrol will add more weightage to the burden of inflation for the masses.

The petitioner pleaded the court to declare the government’s move of increasing the price as null and void.
