RAJANPUR: DCO Ghazi Amanullah said on Thursday that strict monitoring of vegetables and fruit auction at the main market and introduction of Sahoolat bazaars by the provincial government proved instrumental in bringing prices of vegetables down in Punjab.

The initiative discouraged profiteers and hoarders and ensured availability of fruit and vegetables in the open market at affordable price, he said during a visit to a Sahoolat Bazaar here.

The DCO ordered market committee officials to keep monitoring auction process and announce wholesale prices through loudspeaker.

Assistant commissioners were asked to ensure that shopkeepers should display the price list.
