Landikotal: The rates of daily-use commodities are on the run here with no mechanism in place to stabilize them. The price control committee cof Tehsildar Arshad Khan Afridi has failed control the skyrocketing prices of various food commodities in Landikotal bazaar.
Former APA Landikotal sub division of Khyber Agency Azmat Wazir had issued directions to form a powerful price control committee, comprising officials and locals to control prices but dueto transfer of APA such a committee could not be formed.
The rate of yogurt in Peshawar is Rs 70 per kilogram while in Landikotal it is being sold at Rs100/kg. The rate of poultry meat in Peshawar is Rs280/ kg while in Landikotal it is Rs 330/ kg. Same is the case with all other kitchen commodities.
When contacted Tehsildar Landikotal Arshad Afridi said that administration would take serious and stern action against profiteers. Citizens hope that newly appointed APA Landikotal Tayib Abdullah would take keen interests to control prices in the area.
