All Ramazan Sastay Bazaars shut down in Punjab
The provincial government has also issued a notification of shutting down the bazaars across the province so now today was the last day for people to buy necessary items for their remaining fasting days.
The step was taken apparently in view of the surging coronavirus cases in the province.
The decision to end the Ramazan Bazaars was taken after consultation with the Punjab Chief Secretary and Provincial Minister for Food.
The Ramazan Bazaars were established in Punjab last month at the start of the holy month of Ramazan with a discount of up to 25 percent on flour, sugar, pulses, vegetables and other items from the government.
