HAFIZABAD - The Kissan Board Hafizabad chapter has appealed to the provincial government to ensure procurement of wheat from April 16 to save the growers from the exploitation of middlemen.

During a meeting of the Kissan Board Hafizabad chapter chaired by Aman Ullah Chattha, it was disclosed that wheat harvesting had been started on war-footings and the Food Department or Passco had not yet arranged the supply of ‘bardana’ (gunny bags). The participants of the meeting demanded start of procurement drive at earliest.
