OGRA recommends Rs11.95 increase in petrol prices OGRA recommends Rs11.95 increase in petrol prices

Prime Minister Imran Khan Monday rejected a summary to increase the petrol price by Rs 11 per liter and diesel by Rs 14, in the national interest.

The prime minister said that government would bear the burden of the price hike this time to protect the people from the additional economic burden.

As the government was striving to avert the burden of inflation from the people, therefore the prime minister deferred the Energy Ministry’s summary despite the fact that the oil prices were increasing worldwide owing to the swelling global inflation.

Earlier, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Affairs Shahbaz Gill had said that PM Imran Khan has deferred the summary to increase petrol price by Rs 11 and Rs14 increase in Diesel price.

The SAPM in his latest Tweet said, “The Prime Minister did not approve the summary of increasing petrol by Rs11 and diesel by Rs14.

“The PM said that oil prices were rising in the world due to rising inflation but the PTI government would do everything to save the people from this inflation, therefore, the prime minister has deferred this summary.”
