ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader and Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda on Friday indicated that surge in dollar price was a temporary phenomenon and said it it will hopefully be under control shortly.

He was responding to the criticism of the opposition about current rise in dollar value in forex market.
