The Food Department knelt before the Flour Mills Association. The price of flour has been increased. A 20 kg bag of flour was made expensive by Rs. 55.
The price was fixed at Rs. 860. The price of flour was increased by Rs2.75 per kg.
According to sources, the owners of flour mills have flatly refused to buy government wheat, while the Punjab government has targeted the Secretary Food Punjab to end the deadlock.
According to Asim Raza, chairman, Flour Mills Association, it is a big mistake to ignore stakeholders to stabilize flour prices.
