It is sad that this country is in the poverty list and is further sinking," he said.

He further said that this continuous process of increasing petrol and diesel prices is going to hit the country's economy terribly.

"Price rise, escalating price, diesel is going to have a cascading affect on every section of the economy. Agriculture, vegetables, goods moment across the country, everything is going to be effected," he added.
