Various flour mills associations and their officer bearers called upon Punjab food minister, secretary food and other authorities to change wheat quota policy for Rawalpindi and Islamabad and allocate separate quota for Rawalpindi to avoid flour supply paucity and artificial price hike in future.

The office bearers and representatives of different flour mills associations while addressing a presser in Attock on Monday have called upon concerned authorities to allocate a separate quota for flour mills operating in Rawalpindi.

“When food controllers of the two cities are different, then why the quota is the same, questioned the office bearers of different flour mills avocations and representative bodies while talking to media persons in Attock on Monday.

“This policy is the main cause of the wheat crisis and widespread disparity of flour rates”, they said. “We demand from the provincial government to ensure a separate wheat quota to the flour mills of Rawalpindi district to fulfill the requirement of commodity in the province”.
