Speaking on the occasion, Habibullah Shaikh, Wali Muhammad Solangi, Hakim Solangi, Yousif Leghari and Sakhi Kalhoro said that elected members had badly failed to control price hike as a result, poor people were dying like Ethiopian people due to poverty and high prices of vegetables and other eatable items of daily use which has broken the bone of the daily earners.
