Sindh CM Cuts Petrol Quota of Ministers, Officials By 40%

KARACHI: As part of its austerity drive after another hike in petrol price, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah Monday reduced the fuel quota of the ministers and government officials by 40%.

According to the CM spokesperson, the decision was taken to control the expenses and lessen the burden on the national kitty following a sharp increase in the petrol prices within the last few days.

β€œThe rise in petrol price should not be a burden on the exchequer,” Sindh CM Murad Ali Shah said, adding burdening the treasury means increasing the burden on the people.

The price hike has triggered protests in Karachi during which the people damaged a petrol pump and burned tyres atthe University Road.
