Imran Khan says inflation has dropped more than 2% in February compared to January
Prime Minister Imran Khan says inflation has dropped more than 2 percent in February compared to January, which is a good reason.
While tweeting on the social networking site, the Prime Minister said: "Inflation is declining due to cabinet decisions and the significant impact of subsidies on commodities through utility stores."
"Inflation dropped more than 2 percent in February compared to January, and we will continue to take steps to reduce inflation and ease the burden of the public," he said.
It should be noted that the latest data from the Bureau of Statistics said that the Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation rate was 14.56 percent in January, down from 12.4 percent in February.
The Bureau of Statistics said that prices of food items like pulses, fresh vegetables and wheat were the main cause of inflation, which also reduced inflation.
In addition, electricity prices fell 13.48 percent compared to January, impacting overall inflation.
It is to be noted that over the past several months, the rising rate of inflation has increased the distress of the people, especially the alarming rise in prices of food items has made it difficult for the poor people to eat two-time bread.
During the last few months, wheat, flour and sugar crisis have also been witnessed throughout the country which has increased the suffering of the people and the government has faced public anger.
