Sindh Govt urged to announce wheat release policy 2020-21 July 22, 2020

ISLAMABAD-Ministry of National Food Security has urged the Sindh Governments to announce its wheat release policy for the year 2020-21 in order to stabilize wheat demand and supply at affordable prices.

According to an official of the Ministry, the release of wheat from public sector stocks has brought significant stability in prices of wheat and flour, besides discouraging the hoarding.

The official said that the price differential between the provinces in absence of any restrictions on inter provincial movement of wheat and atta points to hoarding and smuggling.

He further said any further delay to announce the wheat release policy by province would further accelerate wheat prices.
