Sugar and flour not in govt control as prices continue skyrocketing
Amid the tall claims to tackle the mafias behind the sugar and flour crises, there is nothing on ground for the people to see as the government has neither been able to ensure sufficient supply nor control the prices, reported 24News HD TV channel on Friday.
Like other parts of the country, the people are facing a tsunami of food inflation in Karachi where they are paying Rs95 for one kilogramme of sugar. Similarly, the flour price has shot up to Rs70 per kilogramme.
This situation has forced people to say that there is no one to check the trend despite the fact that the prices of these two basic daily-use items are on the rise continuously.
Moreover, the PTI is the ruling party not only in the Centre but also Punjab which means there shouldn’t be any confusion when it comes to policy making and execution.
Talking to 24NewsHD, the citizens said the government, on one hand, was making claims about providing relief but the people on the other had been facing great hardships in getting even the daily use items like flour and sugar.
