PESHAWAR: Advisor to Prime Minister on Finance and Finance, Shaukat Tarin on Monday was elected as Senator from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly by securing 87 votes.

Referring to price hike, he said that it was a global phenomenon as the corona pandemic has affected the economy of even developed countries. However, he said that the government was giving targeted subsidies to masses under Ehsas Rashan Card to provide respite from inflation.

He said that the national economy is witnessing 5 to 6 percent growth and soon the prices of commodities would reduce.

Regarding electricity and gas load shedding, Tarin said that more reserves of gas are being explored to provide uninterrupted gas supply to commercial and domestic consumers, adding that priority was still being given to domestic consumers.

Referring to electricity load shedding he said that it was the result of high line losses, and the government is working on how to give relief to masses in high line losses areas.
