RAWALPINDI: In several operations in Rawalpindi, the Punjab Food department on Saturday found over 66,000 kg of flour that had been stockpiled. The food department is keeping an eye on the stock levels using its tracking system in order to alleviate the residents’ suffering.
According to reports, the deputy director of the food division found more than 66,000 kg of wheat flour that had been stockpiled during several searches on godowns in Rawalpindi.
A flour mill has been shut, and six persons had been filed against them. According to the deputy director, the people would get the recovered wheat flour at a certain price set by the government.
Earlier, in light of the severe wheat scarcity, the Punjab food department made the decision to review the history of the flour mills.
The food agency required flour sellers and store owners to provide three months’ worth of documents. The government provides flooring to floor mills, therefore the officials inquired if it also reaches the stores, as many merchants have been complaining about a lack.
