Reports on a rise in the price of gas cylinders are unfounded, minister says

Minister Delegate for General Affairs and Governance, Lahcen Daoudi, denied reports claiming that the price of gaz cylinders would rise, adding that "these rumors are unfounded".

"The government will continue to subsidize butane gas, sugar and flour through the Compensation Fund, in order to protect the purchasing power of citizens," the minister told MAP.

People spreading these rumors "seek to create a feeling of panic among citizens, generate social tensions and impede governmental action," he said.
