Pakistan approaching another ‘flour crisis,’ warns Bilawal Bhutto

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has warned a wheat stock of less than 20 days is left available in the country.

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has warned that the country is moving towards another flour crisis as there are only less than 20 days of wheat stock left available in the country.

In a statement issued by the PPP Media Office on Wednesday, Bilawal slammed the federal government for fixing the wheat purchase price at ₹1,800 per 40 kg, alleging that the government was making a false claim that it had increased the subsidy price up to 400 per cent, Dawn reported.

He claimed that the increase was only 28 per cent as the government had raised the purchase price from ₹1,400 to ₹1,800. He said that his party would not allow the oppression of farmers in Sindh and the relief price would be ₹2,000 per 40kg in the province.

“Today, for the first time in the history of the country, the support price of wheat is not the same in all the provinces and Imran Khan is responsible for this oppression of the farmers of Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan,” he alleged.
