Demand, supply gap hiked prices, says CDA inspector

ISLAMABAD: Malik Waheed, CDA Chief Inspector, at H-9 Bazaar told Daily Times that growth of fruits and vegetables had stopped due to the heavy flooding of plains, and recent rains that are still continue. So it is the main reason behind price spiraling, he added.The chief inspector claimed suppliers were compelled to import vegetables; especially onions and potatoes, from India and China, while some fruits were also being imported from different countries this season. “On Sunday, we have received six complaints, mostly against overcharging. The market committee officials are discharging their duties and ensuring compliance with official prices,” Waheed said.
