ATTOCK: Prices of fruits are minutely monitored in Ramazan, said Attock Deputy Commissioner Ali Anan Qamer, while checking the wholesale auction process at the fruit and vegetable market on Sunday.

The bidding process should be completed in a transparent manner, he said warning against hoarders who make deals before the public auction and send truckloads of fruits directly to their warehouses.

He also inspected the measures taken for prevention from corona virus. The DC said that the supply and wholesale prices of the fruits and vegetable are being supervised to discourage price hike in Ramazan.

DC visited different sheds of the market and reviewed the auction process of strawberries and other fruits.
