Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

It is per­ti­nent to men­tion that Prime Min­is­ter is also aware of the re­cent protest rally in La­hore ar­ranged by Pak­istan Tehree­keIn­saf led by Imran Khan against ris­ing and un­bri­dled in­fla­tion.

And on top of it, Mr Tahirul-Qadri is also us­ing the in­fla­tion and cor­rup­tion as card in ac­cel­er­at­ing its cam­paign against the in­cum­bent regime. So, it is more likely that Prime Min­is­ter will not al­low in­creas­ing the petroleum prod­ucts’ prices.

The of­fi­cials said, in the ab­sence of the CNG as fuel in ve­hi­cles, the con­sump­tion of petroleum prod­ucts has in­creased man­i­fold in the coun­try and the gov­ern­ment is also in a fix as the oil im­port bill that has gone over $ 14 bil­lion in last 2012-13 is liket to fur­ther surge by u to $ 15 bil­lion. Pak­istan costly for­eign ex­change re­serves are be­ing eaten by the im­port of fuel.
