Tomatoes Are Being Sold At Rs17 per KG in Karachi’s Vegetable Markets: Shaikh

KARACHI: Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Finance Adviser, Dr Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, seems to be totally unaware of the ongoing sky-high tomato prices in the country’s economic hub.

On Monday, Sheikh told a group of reporters that tomatoes were being sold as low as Rs17 a kilogramme in Karachi’s vegetable markets.

“In Karachi, in the sabzi mandi (produce market), tomatoes are being sold for Rs17 per kilogramme”.

When some of the reporters present at the scene told him that tomatoes were, in fact, being sold at Rs240 per kilo, he refuted their comment, saying people were lying.
