As per the recent sources, the government has just issued a notice on Sunday in which petrol prices have been increased by 6 rupees per litre.
According to an article, petrol and diesel have been set to Rs. 6 per litre while Kerosene and light diesel oil are to be increased by 3 rupees per litre, effective immediately. This is a huge difference in pricing and the highest it’s been in the last 9 to 10 months.
Under this debate, the Pakistani Awam is calling PM Imran Khan a hypocrite for increasing petrol prices which he has once condemned during the reign of Nawaz Sharif. They are completely floored at this move of the government.

” #SaveSindh” to avoid #PetrolBomb #PetrolHike? Not so cool trick by #PTI media team. Can’t hide the achievement of A CENTURY BY PETROL. Despite of @ImranKhanPTI‘s announcement of discovery of Asia’s largest oil and gas reserves just a week back. #Uturn #OR #LieGotExposed

So while being in the opposition, hiking petrol price was a burden of taxes on the poor masses according to the Prime Minister but now that he is in the government, he is doing the same thing in an even worse way. Govt has no right direction #PetrolBomb #NayaPakistan #PetrolHike https://t.co/eytjoGX6um

Moreover, the cherry on top of that is that the government is likely to increase electricity and gas rates as well. Bechari Awaam! People are certainly not happy with the Government’s decision.
