ISLAMABAD (APP) - The sugar crisis has intensified across the country and sugar is not available at government fixed prices. Sugar mill owners petition against the Lahore High Court (LHC) decision of reducing sugar prices down to Rs 40 kg has been accepted by the Supreme Court, a private news channel reported. On the other hand, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanullah said that mill owners could face contempt of court for going against the LHC decision. In Peshawar, the provincial government has enforced section 144 and the sugar could not be transported out of the province. On Monday LHC rejected the sugar mill owners petition seeking the stay order on the courts earlier orders of reducing sugar prices. The mill owners afterwards decided to move to SC. Earlier, the negotiations between the sugar mill owners and the Punjab government failed once again and the people could not get sugar at Rs 40 per kg as per court orders.
