Lowest oil price in Pakistan as contrast to other countries: Minister
ISLAMABAD: Petroleum and Natural Resources Minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that the government was providing fuel to the public at lowest price among all the fuel importing countries.
Talking to a news channel, the minister said Pakistan reduced Rs 5 per liter this month while India had reduced just Rs 0.04 per liter. He said it was the wrong perception that the advantage of price decrease internationally was not being provided to the common man.
He said, “Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) was doing responsible politics rather point scoring. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was doing politics of agitation.”
Replying to a question regarding gas prices, he said it was Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) which has authority to fix prices of gas for six months.
