ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb on Monday announced a reduction of Rs250 per kilogram in ghee price and said the commodity would be available at all outlets of Utility Stores in the country at Rs300/kg whereas a bag of 10kg wheat flour was already being sold for Rs400.

Speaking at a press conference, she said that in 2018 the price of flour was Rs35 per kilogram, but during the last four-year rule of the PTI government, mafias and cartels were allowed to fill their pockets and the masses were cru­shed under an unprecedented inflation.
