In order to provide relief to the people, the Goods Transporters Association announced to decrease the fares by 25 to 30 percent.
The decision was taken by the transporters association to provide some relief to the masses after the diesel price went down.
It is pertinent to mention here that the National Coordination Committee (NCC) on March 27 had decided to lift the ban on the goods transport across Pakistan in order to maintain a supply of daily use commodities.
Imran Khan—the Prime Minister of Pakistan took this decision while chairing the third meeting of the National Coordination Committee (NCC) to review the situation arising out of the novel coronavirus in the country.
During the NCC meeting, the Prime Minister of Pakistan said that there should be no shortage of the daily us commodities in the country due to the coronavirus lockdown. “The shortage of the food items in the country can create panic,” he added.
On the other hand, the apex court of the country has ordered to open all the shopping malls across Pakistan that were closed previously as part of the preventive protocols to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
