PM rejects proposal for petrol price hike

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan Monday rejected a summary of Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) proposing an increase of Rs 6.22 in petrol prices.

The OGRA had proposed an increase of Rs 6.22 in petrol price, Rs 6.82 in high speed diesel, Rs 6.37 in kerosene and Rs 5.78 in the price of light diesel.

The prime minister said he was fully cognizant of the burden on the common man and has already geared up the government machinery to ensure the availability of everyday prices at low prices.

Imran Khan said the welfare of the masses was his prime responsibility. He said despite the fact that the prices of petroleum prices in the international markets were going up, he has decided not to accept the proposed raise of OGRA and said the people would be able to get the petroleum products at the same price.
