Quetta: Despite the supply of government wheat to the flour mills by the Balochistan government, the wheat and flour crisis continues throughout the province.
The flour mills association has announced a boycott of government wheat from today. The leaders of the association say that it is unfair for the food department to give only 300 sacks of wheat to each flour mill. The crisis will end.
The Flour Mills Association has demanded that the Food Department should provide wheat to the flour mills under the population-based policy, and the Food Department should release the September quota of wheat immediately.
Association leaders say that the monthly requirement of wheat in Balochistan is 16 lakh sacks of wheat, supply of wheat should be ensured according to the demand in Balochistan.
