Pakistani Prime Minister Sharif curb the price of flour can sell clothes shortage of wheat


Wheat production in Pakistan is estimated to be around 3 million tons less this year. In such a situation, there is a possibility of a sharp increase in the price of wheat. Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif said that he would not allow the price of flour to rise under any circumstances. Even if you have to sell your clothes for this. Addressing a general meeting of the Pakistan Muslim Nawaz League (PML-N) in Bisham Tehsil, Shangla District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sharif pledged to reduce flour prices in the province.

Sharif stated that he knows very well how to reduce flour prices in the province. He directed the county government to cut flour prices at its own expense. According to the report, the State Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said, Saturday, that wheat production is estimated at 26.173 million tons, against the target of 28.89 million tons, while consumption is estimated at 30.79 million tons.

The wheat yield decreased for these reasons
The reason for this shortage is the lack of land, water, and fertilizers, and the delay in announcing the support price for wheat cultivation. Besides, the rise in oil prices and the emergence of a heat wave earlier than usual is also the reason for this. For these reasons, production fell by 2 percent. The Russo-Ukrainian War also caused an acute shortage of wheat in Pakistan.
