The petrol shortage has hit the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province hard as most of the filling stations in the far-flung districts including Swat, Kalam are without petrol for the past several days, ARY News reported.

Since Eidul Azha, the number of tourists in the scenic northern areas of the country has increased dramatically especially the popular hill station of Swat. According to reports, petrol reportedly is being sold at Rs700 per litre in Swat.

Thousands of tourists thronging the picturesque Kalam valley in Swat had to face the worst road blockades and traffic jams and fuel shortages.

Hundreds of vehicles are present in the area with many running low on fuel.

The same petrol shortage situation is being witnessed in Gilgit Baltistan also. The GB chief minister took notice of petrol shortage in the region and directed authorities concerned to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Earlier today, the Provincial Tourism Department has advised tourists to keep caution amid rain forecast in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

A spokesperson of the tourism department has asked tourists to take precautionary steps for safety during the monsoon rainfall.

The visitors in the province should avoid to take their vehicles in flowing flood water and visiting rivers, rain drains and other courses of the rainwater, according to the department.

“The tourists should remain in contact with the district administration in case of flooding situation,” the tourism department advised.

Shortage of petrol due to unprecedented demand. What do the people who populate the Fort of Islam do? Raise the price 6 times the normal price to profiteer from majboori.

No concern if profits are halal or haram, as long as the chicken is halal.

They have jailed a vegetable vendor for selling goods at prices cheaper than government sanctioned.

Punjab should offer Buzdar to KPk.

Gilgit-baltistan has a fuel depo located in juglot sai. Its was initially owned by PSO then given to Army for "strategic reasons".
It hasn't had any real investment done on it, and when road blockages happen there's acute fuel shortage due to non-existent storage.

Why is government silent over this cruel markup?
Or has the petrol been stored somewhere for these gains?

As the lot says everyone in KPK Govt is super honest, he joined the party after many years.
The province is touted as an example of how good PTi administration is.

While Sindh is going towards another lockdown, KPk seems to be enjoying free healthcare.
