LAHORE - Member Provincial Assembly Zobia Rubab Malik has said that the government has failed in checking the dearness and profiteering on the occasion of Eidul Fitr. According to a statement issued here on Monday, she said that it was an offence on part of the government that it could not control price-hike on Eid as the poor masses were looted with both hands by profiteers. Zobia alleged that Opposition sitting in the Federation had been observing and seeing all the situation of dearness and price-hike, and it also intentionally overlooked the two Presidential Ordinances completing their constitutional periods and becoming ineffective. She added that the rulers should ensure availability of daily use items at fixed prices so that the masses could be given maximum relief.
