Prime Minister Imran Khan ordered all the provinces on Tuesday to initiate a massive crackdown on wheat and wheat flour hoarding and adulteration to ensure food supply at an affordable price.

“Immediate crackdown should be conducted against wheat hoarders across the country,” the prime minister said while presiding over a high-level meeting held at PM Office to review availability and prices of wheat/flour.

He ordered the relevant authorities to mandate all shopkeepers to be ordered outside their shops to show the price of 20 kg bag of wheat flour (Atta). In addition, he emphasized the need to strengthen regional cooperation to introduce uniformity in wheat and wheat flour prices across the country.

His finance adviser Dr Hafeez Shaikh, commerce adviser Abdul Razak Dawood, special assistant on political communication Shahbaz Gill and federal ministers Syed Fakhr Imam and Hammad Azhar also attended the meeting.
