Particular - Baghdad Post
With the approach of the holy month of Ramadan, Iraqi families are increasingly concerned, especially Baghdadi, including the high cost of a repeat of the phenomenon of food prices coupled with the month of Ramadan each year, families that can not only find the appeal to the concerned authorities to impose strict control to agencies that stand behind the excessive rise in prices.
In this context, said retired Khalil Hamza's "Baghdad Post" that "the fact that there is a crisis in the country and those responsible must find solutions to them, it is reasonable to continue the phenomenon of excessive price increases with the advent of holy month of Ramadan or the holidays."
Hamza explained, "I am retired and I get a stipend of $ 600 thousand dinars every two months, but I am a breadwinner for a family of five people and I live in a rented house, Taking what has been raising the prices of food, how me and like me the ability to buy what we need."
Hamza said that "the imposition of sanctions on shopkeepers and traders until the need is not taken to override the rights of citizens and the duty of the government and the silence it demonstrates they are either satisfied with what is happening or it is unable to do anything."
In turn, said the mother Fatima who lives in the Karrada district's "Baghdad Post" I "I used years ago to buy what I need from food before the holy month of Ramadan, one full month, so I avoid the high prices that we used it."
She explained that "the majority of shop owners trying to exploit the citizens by raising prices at a time of increased demand and this puts the citizen in front of one option and no one else is buying whatever the price because of need."
She added that "the government not to put the mechanisms designed to reduce the high prices make the traders the opportunity to take advantage of the holy month of Ramadan and the need of the citizens of those goods Lim raise the price."
For his part, said Latif Salman, owner of a shop to sell food for the "Baghdad Post," I "I hear many of the charges per day by the citizens about the high prices, especially before the month of Ramadan, and the citizen believes that the owner of the shop is driving up prices in order to win more."
He explained that "with the shop owners to be a source of cheap goods to be selling faster, but we are committed to traders at prices they determine the price of the goods that we sell directly to the citizens and not the owner of the shop." "We are citizens of our situation if Analm What are the reasons and motives behind the higher prices of food before the holy month of Ramadan, and the government to ascertain the causes and develop treatments for it."
Experiencing food prices in the month of Ramadan, a rise in all provinces of Iraq, for reasons still unknown to the citizens and even in some cases, shop owners to sell. The high prices put pressure on the possibilities and capabilities of Iraq's low-income families, a Maidfha to appeal to the government to increase salaries to create a balance of financial or work on a fixed price for all materials.
