Pakistan is currently going through a terrible economic crisis. For the people of Pakistan, even the bread of June 2 has become difficult at this time. People who are angry with the government of Pakistan say that the government has put them in double trouble. There was a historic fall in the Pakistani rupee on Saturday. Pakistan's currency reserves are falling. Some hopes that Pakistan had from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) are also seen to be shattered. Amidst all this, the federal government in Pakistan increased the prices of petrol and diesel by Rs 35 today.
The price of kerosene oil and light diesel oil has also been increased by Rs 18 per litre. After this new hike, the price of one litre of petrol in Pakistan has gone up to Rs 249.80. At the same time, after the increase in the prices of diesel, one litre of diesel is now being sold at Rs 262.80 per litre. The price of kerosene oil has gone up to Rs 189.83 per litre and that of light diesel oil has gone up to Rs 187 per litre. Pakistan's Finance Minister Ishaq Dar said that due to the increase in oil prices in the international market, the oil and gas authorities had asked to increase the prices. On the shortage of petroleum, he said that an 'artificial' shortage is being created.
It is being told that Pakistan currently has only $3.68 billion in foreign exchange reserves left. In such a situation, imports can be done only for three weeks.
Pakistan Rupee is also continuously getting weaker. On January 27, for the second day in a row, the Pakistani rupee depreciated by Rs 11.17 against the dollar. That is, to import anything, now 266 rupees will have to be paid per dollar.
Finance Minister Ishaq Dar said that in the last week, there was a decline in the Pakistani rupee. The price of petroleum products has increased by 11 percent in the international market. He said that such rumours were being spread that there is no petrol left in the country. I hope that after this announcement it will be clear that there is petrol in the country.
Regarding the deteriorating situation in Pakistan, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar said that the previous governments had done many such things due to which the present situation was created. Pakistan was on the path of development during the Shahbaz government, but since then everything has gone haywire. In the last five years, Pakistan has seen only drama.
