Talking to standing committee of ICCI here in Chamber House on Monday, he said in Ramzan Ul Mubarik the demand for products of daily consumption increases many folds and due to shortage, prices are increased in response and business community is accused of the entire.

He further said that due to increased consumption of pulses, rice, onion, tomato, potato, dates, vegetables and masalahjat, the prices are also increased.

The shopkeepers have no leverage to regulate the prices but district Administration is responsible for it, he informed.
