Price of essentials in Ramadan

Prior to Ramadan, a common scenario is the price hike of essentials in the city’s kitchen markets. According to local newspapers and television stations, the prices of essential grocery items, including onion, garlic, sugar and chickpeas, as well as other vegetables have already gone beyond reach for most. It is completely unthinkable that while other Muslim countries take steps to make prices stable ahead of the month of Ramadan, the kitchen markets of our

country turn to extracting even more profit from customers. What is even more shocking is that they use this opportunity to create artificial scarcity in the kitchen markets right before Ramadan. I would like to draw the attention of the relevant authorities to take initiatives necessary in bringing stability in the kitchen markets during this time.
