Pakistan deserves this and worse: Farhan Saeed lashes out at countrymen for not speaking up


As the inflation-stricken nation continues to reel from the effects of an economic maelstrom, the government on Wednesday dropped another oil bomb by increasing the price of petrol by Rs22

20 per litre effective today

Farhan Saeed has taken to social media and lashed out at his fellow countrymen for not raising a voice against the increasing inflation

"Pakistaniyon, tum 500 rs litre bhi dalwa loge

Afsos! (Pakistanis would even be okay if the petrol prices were increased to Rs500 per litre

Sad state of affairs)

The nations that don’t stand up for themselves, deserve this and worse," he shared in a tweet

The fresh hike in the prices of petrol and diesel is also due to the rupee's depreciation against the dollar, the finance ministry said in a statement

According to the finance ministry, the government had also increased the price of kerosene oil by Rs12

90 per litre and light diesel oil by LDO Rs9

68 per litre

After the surge, the price of petrol has gone up to Rs272 per litre against its earlier price of Rs249

80 per litre, registering a hike of Rs22

60 per litre
