He said in his tweet message, “PDMA purchased flour from Punjab for the flood affectees of Sindh. Today PTI’s Punjab government confiscated those trucks carrying flour bags at the Punjab border and lodged FIR. PTI, again and again, is crossing all the limits. Earlier, PTI activities ran a fake campaign and now they are stopping relief supplies”.
