Abdul Rehman Khan further said that Flour Mills Association has always cooperated with the Food Controller of the area and Punjab Food Department in strict enforcement of official rate. He said that 15 sales points have been set up in Islamabad where flour was sold at official rate while District Food Controller and his team was regularly checking these sales points to ensure price control. He further said that about 70 sales points have been set up in Rawalpindi while flour was sold at official rates in 16 Sasta Bazaars. However, he demanded that the government should take immediate notice of the shortage of wheat as the rising wheat price in the open market would increase the pressure on the quota of flour mills and lead to further increase in the price of flour that would hike the miseries of the common man. He further emphasized that the government should act proactively to avert any wheat or flour crisis in the country.
