Panel to resume checks on illegal hike in prices Unify prices of products in all co-ops

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 16: The Chairman of the Cooperative Societies Union Al-Mu’een Ali Hassan revealed that the committee which is responsible for following up and controlling the prices of consumer products will resume its tasks of allotting strict regulations for preventing any illegal hike in the prices of the goods and products sold in the cooperative societies, reports Al-Anba daily. He said the committee must also ensure the suppliers comply with the decisions taken to organize the process of importing products and supplying them to the cooperative societies.

Ali Hassan revealed that the committee, in coordination with the Cooperative Societies Union, will unify the prices of the products in all cooperative societies through the implementation of a clear mechanism that will prevent inflation of the prices. He added that the union’s role in managing the work of the committee will ensure the tasks are accomplished in line with the law. Meanwhile, Several Kuwaiti citizens and expatriates expressed their surprise about the messy situation created by the authorities in failing to cover open excavations at various locations in the country, reports Al-Seyassah daily quoting an informed source.

They said many electrical cables can be seen lying around on the ground including some with exposed copper wires, which can lead to disaster any time. They urged the government to solve the problem quickly in order to prevent foretold occurrences, adding that majority of such instances can be found in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, Khaitan, Farwaniya and Hawally.

A Kuwaiti man Bu Nasser said he rented an apartment opposite the United Nations Building in Khaitan where he has seen electrical cables lying in the open in front of a building for four consecutive months. He said the owner of the building ignores the consistent requests to solve the problem before any tenants or passersby face electrocution. Meanwhile, Bu Naji disclosed that many telephone and electrical cables lie open on the ground in various places, indicating his worry that the open cables could electrocute children.

Ali Sanad narrated an unfortunate story, saying the security guard of his building died last year while cleaning the area with water because of an open electrical cable which was left without being replaced for a long time. He stressed that the Ministry of Electricity and Water should send its officials to verify the damaged cables for replacing them and filling up the excavations to avoid any untoward incidents.
