Dairy Farm Association has decided to increase milk price by rupees 6 per liter in Karachi violating the government’s order to sell milk at Rs.70 per liter. Interestingly, they were already selling the milk at higher price that was Rs.84 per liter and now the Association in its meeting on Monday decided in Karachi to increase the retail milk price to Rs.90. According to them the wholesale rate of the milk has been raised to Rs.77 from Rs.71 per liter.
Dairy Farm Association president Hajji Akhtar Gujjar announced the Rs 6 per liter raise while Dairy Farm and Cattle Association president Muhammad Shakir Umar disowned the new milk price hike. Karachiites expressed dismay over the rise in milk prices at a time when petrol and other oil prices have been reduced by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
