Islamabad: On Tuesday, when Muslims were celebrating Muharram across the world, the price of milk in Pakistan reached Rs 140 per liter. Interestingly, Rs 140 per liter of milk is also very expensive compared to petrol and diesel. According to Pakistani media reports, the price of petrol in Pakistan is Rs 113 per liter and the price of diesel is Rs 91 per liter. So right now, expensive milk is being sold from these two. Milk prices have been Rs 140 per liter here yesterday.
At present, the price of milk in major cities of Pakistan has gone out of control. According to reports, it has reached Rs 140 per liter in Karachi and Sindh province and a shopkeeper has said that the price of milk in Karachi city is between Rs 120 and Rs 140. Also, many residents have said that they have not seen such high price of milk due to Muharram during their lifetime. With such a price, it is visible that at this time driving in Pakistan has become cheaper than drinking milk. The steep rise in the price of milk is indicative of Pakistan's crumbling economy.
Let us tell you that recently, the International Monetary Fund has decided to send its team this month, so that Pakistan, which is struggling with the cash crisis, can find ways and suggestions to reduce the growing budget deficit. At the same time, Pakistan's capital Islamabad also wants to get more investment and bailout packages from various institutions to secure its sinking economy.
