The administration gave a 72-hour deadline to increase milk prices.
The All Karachi Retailers Association protested at the press club against an increase in milk prices.
If the government doesn’t comply with their requests, milk sales would be stopped starting on Monday in Karachi, according to Hafiz Muhammad Nasar Gaddi.
Nasar Gaddi claimed that dairy farmers couldn’t sell pricey milk for less; they underlined the fact that they continue to sell milk to merchants for between Rs214 and Rs218 per liter.
He claimed that they couldn’t purchase pricey milk and sell it for less since the Karachi commissioner had ordered dairy producers to boost their prices, which would harm small shops.
According to Gaddi, milk cannot be purchased and sold at this price, instead, dealers need a 20 rupee per liter profit margin. He claimed that 12 to 15 thousand milk sellers in Karachi would stop purchasing milk if the demands were not met.
According to spokesperson Wahid Gaddi, milk sales are falling as a result of growing prices and dwindling purchasing power.
