Main Opposition party, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N, has demanded fifty-rupee cut in the per-litre price of petrol, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
PML-N MPA Hina Pervaiz Butt on Saturday submitted a resolution in the Punjab Assembly in this regard.
The resolution says that in the international market the petrol rate has plummeted from $85 to $75 per barrel. Keeping in the view the drop in global price, the petrol rate in Pakistan should also be decreased, adds the resolution.
The international prices have been on the decline continuously but the rates in Pakistan are being increased twice a month, says the resolution.
