Rawalpindi, July 21 (ANI): Soaring inflation in Pakistan and a particular hike in flour prices, have forced food joints in Islamabad and Rawalpindi to reduce the weight of both rotis and naans.
The weight of a naan or a roti has been decreased from 110 grams each to 80 and 70 grams respectively at previous prices of Rs.5 and Rs.4 each.
The step on the part of naanbais is a sheer violation of local administration orders.
According to The News, in Islamabad, rotis and naans are being sold at Rs.4 and Rs.5 respectively.
Rawalpindi-Islamabad Nannbais Association General Secretary Khawas Khan Jadoon told The News that the government has increased flour prices time and again, but the price of a roti or a naan has been increased only once.
The city administration should impose fine on those who were violating the regulations in this regard, he added.
Rafiq Ahmed Saddique, a doctor told The News that city administration should take strict action against naanbais selling a roti and a naan with reduced weight. He said due toreduced weight the roti becomes dry and is not easily consumable. (ANI)
