KARACHI: One kilogramme of flour will now be sold at Rs. 30. The commodity is being sold for Rs65 instead of Rs35 per kilo.
The Sindh government has held the federal government and its policies responsible for the rise in price.
“Imran Khan’s government has brought a tsunami of inflation in the country,” said Agriculture, Supply and Prices Minister Ismail Rahoo. “Both petrol and gas is getting expensive because of which flour prices have increased,” he said.
On the other hand, the Flour Mills Association has blamed the local government for the rise.
“The government had promised to give us 12,000 sacks, each containing 100 kilos of flour, in December,” a representative of the association said. “But they have only given us 4,000 sacks as yet,” he said.
