Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed has said that instead of accountability, making flour cheaper would have been better for the government.
Speaking at Geo News program ‘New Pakistan’, Sheikh Rasheed said that the political issues in the country are those of people in London rather than Imran Khan.
He said that two months would be up and down in February and March, but Imran Khan would not be leaving.
Referring to the flour crisis, the federal minister said that instead of accountability, it would have been better for the government if electricity and flour were made cheaper.
He said that people would be satisfied if they are provided cheap flour and cheap electricity.
It is to be noted that the flour crisis has intensified all over the country and the price of flour per kg has reached Rs 70 in various cities including Karachi, Hyderabad and Lahore.
According to sources, several meetings of the Federal Cabinet held late last year identified a flour crisis.
Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed even warned that railway warehouses are rapidly evacuating.
Whenever respondents were asked in the cabinet or the matter was put before the Punjab Government and the bureaucracy, the answer was that there was no problem, there was plenty of wheat.
