Punjab government’s anti agriculture policy may lead to an unassailable wheat shortage in the country. Millions of dollars worth of wheat weighing about 9.9 tons has been left unattended by the government. Not purchasing it from farmers has left it to rot in the go-downs which will be useless after a short time.
Wheat crop this year was sufficient to fulfill the needs of Pakistan while the excess could have been sold in the international market at profitable rates. The insensitivity shown by CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif is clearly implausible while Moonis Elahi has tried multiple times to highlight the grave danger that lies ahead if the right decision isn’t taken now.
