A surveillance team of Pul-e-Khumri Municipality, the capital city of Baghlan province, blocked some grocery stores that sold goods at higher prices, stating that the gates of these shops would remain closed.
Pul-e-Khumri mayor Faraidoun Shinwari told Hasht-e Subh that the process started yesterday and will continue until a fixed price is set for goods in the city.
According to him, they have asked shopkeepers to refrain from selling goods at higher prices.
Earlier, local Taliban officials in the city of Pul-e-Khumri set a price list and warned that violators would be dealt with severely.
Shopkeepers claim that the price depends on the stability of the currency in the country. According to them, as the dollar value rises against afghani, so do the prices of goods.
