The government has decided to reserve the essential commodities in properly planned and strategic reserves. The commodities such as sugar, pulse, edible oil, and wheat are the essentials to be reserved. The government has taken this initiative to control the prices and illegal profiteering. This will also ensure timely availability of the supply and help over the gap between the supply and demand chain.
The finance minister has given instructions to Ministry of National Food Security and Research Secretary Jamshed Cheema to formulate the idea and discuss it in the committee for approval for further discussion. Additionally, he guided the food ministry to import two million tons of wheat.
