The Imran Khan government of Pakistan has once dropped a bomb of inflation on the poor people. Petrol was costlier by Rs 12.3 and diesel by about Rs 10 per litre late Tuesday night. Petrol will now get around Rs 160 per litre, while regular diesel will be available at Rs 124 per litre. However, this decision is not surprising because a few days ago, the IMF had given a loan of one billion dollars to Pakistan.
For this, the Imran government had to struggle for six months. It was clearly stated in terms of the IMF that the prices of petroleum products and electricity would have to be increased. Earlier in January, the rates of petroleum products were increased by about Rs 4 a litre.
What will be the new rates
The prices of high-speed diesel and kerosene have also been increased by about Rs 10 per litre. The government says that there is no scope for them to decrease in the coming days. Now the new rates of petroleum products in Pakistan have become like this…
High-Speed Diesel: 155
Light Diesel: 124
Where is the Danger
Terrorist attacks in Pakistan have increased again in the last few months. Recently, a think tank of the country had said that people are broken due to inflation, and terrorist groups are taking advantage of it. Another important thing is that there is no supply of LPG gas in the country’s northern parts.
People here still use kerosene oil-burning stoves, and food is cooked. Now it has been made more expensive by Rs 10. The Pakistani Army also meets its needs in the northern part with this kerosene. Now it has become Rs 127 per litre.
And look at the Shamelessness
of the Army, Pakistan’s Army wrote a letter to the Imran Khan government recently. A 50% rebate in electricity bills should be given to all the army officers. Shamelessly see that this relief was sought only for the officers of the rank of Major.
Due to this, the exemption was not sought for the people of lower rank or, say broadly, jawans. Electricity prices are also skyrocketing in the country. Relief is also given in petroleum products for the officers of the Army and ISI.
