LONDON: Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif has held Prime Minister Imran Khan and his cabinet responsible for the wheat crisis in the country.
The PML-N president while calling for an urgent inquiry into the flour crisis said that the nation should be apprised about on whose orders the wheat and flour was exported.
“The nation must know who benefitted from the crisis,” he said. The PML-N president asked where the wheat reserves had gone in 16 months.
He feared that if this was the case, the situation after three months would be scary. “The rulers termed 2020 as the year of progress, while economic experts are declaring it a year of economic ruin,” he added.
He further said that 48,000 metric tons of wheat was exported between July 25 and October 2019, despite the ban by the federal government. “Food Security claims that not a single kernel has gone out of the country after July 25 then where did the wheat go?” he added.
