According to TOBA TEK SINGH, the public’s boycott of fruit caused the sale of fruit in the Faisalabad division to decline by at least 50%.
A social media campaign against the increase in fruit prices during Ramadan was started by worried Karachi residents, and it has now spread other Punjabi cities as well.
Due to widespread consumer resistance to purchasing expensive fruit on Tuesday, it was still successful in Faisalabad division.
As a result of the fasting month, the fruit inflation mafia had greatly increased the costs, and the populace participated in this quiet protest.
In a poll conducted by Dawn in several Toba Tek Singh bazaars, the locals said they skipped buying fruit on Monday and Tuesday in opposition to the fruit vendors.
The merchants and shopkeepers, according to their claims, continued to wait for the consumers. Some reports claim that the vendors had to reduce the prices at which they were selling the melons and bananas.
