Significant Surge in Roti and Naan Prices Hits Lahore

The prices of naan and roti in Lahore have experienced a significant increase, with reports indicating a surge of up to Rs. 15. A naan that was previously priced at Rs. 25 is now being sold for Rs. 40, while the cost of a simple roti has risen from Rs. 12 to Rs. 25.

The price hike has been attributed to the escalating costs of flour, fine flour, and gas. Additionally, the supply of affordable subsidized flour to utility stores has been halted.
