Opposition bench members chanted slogans against PTI government.

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Opposition parties on Friday have staged a protest in National Assembly (NA) against increasing inflation across the country.

During the session, the opposition bench members chanted slogans against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government by holding placards.

Meanwhile, speaking in the House, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif asked where are five million houses and jobs for the people. The nation will soon make them accountable, he added.

He further demanded to present the agreement signed between banned outfit protestors and government in the assembly.

Later, Rana Tanveer of the PML-N pointed out lack of quorum. On counting, the House was not found in order and the chair adjourned the session to meet again on Monday at six pm.

The reaction came after government on late Thursday night jacked up the price of petrol by Rs 8.03 per litre with immediate effect.

According to a notification issued in this regard, the new price of petrol will be Rs 145.82 per litre against the current rate of Rs 137.79 per litre.

The price of high-speed diesel (HSD) has also been enhanced by Rs 8.14 per litre and will now cost Rs142.62 per litre.

The price of kerosene oil has also increased by Rs 6.27 per litre to Rs 116.53 per litre. In addition, the price of light diesel oil has been enhanced by Rs 5.72 per litre. The new price of light diesel oil will thus be Rs114.07 per litre.
