LAHORE: The shopkeepers increased the prices of milk and yogurt by Rs5 to 10/lt, despite the district government of Lahore had already set them, Geo News reported Sunday.
The shopkeepers are selling the milk at new raised prices.
District government specified milk at Rs40 from Rs36/lit and yogurt price at Rs44/kg; however, these food items are not available on these prices.
According to market survey, milk is being sold at Rs45 to Rs55/lit and yogurt at Rs50 to 60/lit.
The citizens protested against the exorbitant rates of milk and yogurt, saying there is no one to grill those responsible for the hike.
