Dastgir furthered that oil and power prices are likely to decrease from next month, which will help lower the prices of other items.

The restoration work on damaged grid stations was underway on the orders of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who had instructed all the officers of the power division to restore power supply to flood-affected areas on an emergency basis.

The premier was said to be personally overseeing the restoration work, and a report regarding the progress was being submitted to him on a daily basis.
