Former chief minister Punjab Hamza Shehbaz Sharif said the Punjab government stopped the subsidized flour supply to the poor, reported 24NewsHFD TV Channel.
In a statement on Wednesday, PML- N leader said his government introduced a cheap flour scheme for the poor segment of society, under which a 10 kg bag of flour was being supplied for 490 rupees, but the incumbent government has increased its price and now a 10 kg bag of flour will be available for 648 rupees, he lamented.
He alleged that Tehreek-e-Insaf's provincial government following its anti-poor policies waived off subsidy on the flour which was another blow to the people who were already facing history’s worst inflation. He asked, will the money of cheap flour scheme be spent on Imran khan Niazi's protocol?
Hamza Shahbaz Sharif said that PTI Chief Imran Niazi had nothing to do with the people, he only had lust for power.
