Government Minister for Food Security Fakhar Imam says least wheat support cost for Punjab will be Rs1,800 per 40kg.
He said the public authority will keep vital stores of 1,000,000 tons of wheat.
Punjab Food Minister Abdul Aleem Khan said never at any point in Punjab’s set of experiences the public authority expanded the wheat support cost by Rs400 per 40kg.
He said the public authority would not permit expansion in the flour cost regardless of expansion in the wheat cost.
Fakhar Imam said the choice to set the wheat cost for Punjab at Rs1,800 per 40kg was taken at a gathering with Prime Minister Imran Khan in the seat.
He said that last year the wheat creation remained at 25.2 million tons and this year the objective is 26.2 million tons.
