The adviser said he would hold a meeting with the fertilizers producers this week to determine the prices of the commodity.

He reiterated the government’s resolve to protect the local farmers from price hike, besides providing them maximum relief for the development of agriculture sector and poverty alleviation from the country.

Razak Dawood said gas prices were increased owing to certain changes introduced in the federal budget 2019-20.
