Swat: People from different regions of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region of Pakistan on Sunday demonstrated against rising prices of flour and other essential commodities.

They urged the government to ensure controlling the prices of the items.

In Swat, the protesters in Khwazakhela and Mingora took to the streets despite rain against the record hike in prices of essential food commodities.

The local traders federation urged Chief Minister Mahmood Khan to increase the flour quota for Swat, reports Dawn News.

They said flour prices touched a record high in Swat where a 20 kg flour bag had reached Rs 3,200.

They said the people were worried about the flour crisis and needed immediate relief.

They said prices of all the daily use items had gone out of the people’s reach.

They said the wheat supplied to the local mills was of inferior quality.

Swat traders federation president Abdul Rahim warned that if steps were not taken to control inflation the traders would be forced to call for big protests across Malakand division, reports Dawn News.
