Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan calls for a cabinet meeting over increased prices of ‘Roti’ and ‘Naan’

Pakistan PM took 'stern notice' of the rising prices of roti and naan and has directed the price to be reverted to original price.

In a peculiar incident, parody country Pakistan’s parody Prime Minister Imran Khan himself chaired a cabinet meeting on Tuesday to decide on the gas tariffs for tandoors and prices of roti and naan, reports Dawn.

“Prime Minister Imran Khan has taken a stern notice of increasing prices of naan and roti and decided to take immediate steps to revert them to their original rates,” said Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan at a press conference after the cabinet meeting.

Pakistan government also shared a video of the above cabinet meeting on Twitter.

The video shared by the Government of Pakistan has been muted. Perhaps Pakistan was afraid that India would steal its tandoor tariff rate secret from them, which may cause further distortion and hunger in an already hungry country.

At present naan is selling at Pakistani Rs.12 to Rs.15 in different cities of the country. However, before an increase in the gas tariff and rates of wheat flour, naan price ranged between Rs.8 and Rs.10. Similarly, roti is available at Rs.10 to Rs.12 while its previous rate was Rs.7 to Rs.8.

Reportedly, Prime Minister Imran Khan-led cabinet also called a meeting of the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the cabinet on Wednesday aimed at reducing the gas tariff especially for ‘Tandoorwalas’ and cutting the price of Atta (wheat flour) and duties on it.
