The court issued a notice to the federal government seeking a reply. Deputy Attorney Khawaja Imtiaz went to the rostrum and accepted the notice.

Rao Abdul Rahim Advocate appeared in the court on behalf of Jamaat-e-Islami leader Mian Aslam. Rao Abdul Rahim Advocate said that the prices were increased before the end of June without OGRA’s summary.

Prices cannot be raised, the government’s five-day-old price hike is malicious, there is no pricing update on OGRA’s website even today.

Advocate Rao Abdul Rahim told the court that the government was raising taxes as per its wishes. Petrol prices were increased through a press release. As no OGRA notification has been received, so the government’s order to increase the price should be suspended.

According to OGRA’s June notification, the government should be directed to fix the price of petrol.
