PESHAWAR In the wake of food shortage and destruction of major agriculture produce specially wheat due to deadly flooding, the government of Pakistan has decided to cancel export of wheat and all wheat products to Afghanistan immediately. Sources told TheNation that official announcement in this regard will be made in few days after consultation with four provinces who have been asked to send their recommendations. The approval to cancel export of 20 lakh ton wheat has been given keeping in view the increasing food crisis due to floods and to control further shortage of food in flood affected areas. All those flourmills that have been authorised to export wheat to Afghanistan will be informed of the decision in few days, official sources said. Due to flash floods one lakh ton wheat stock in four provinces has been destroyed, which included 40,000 ton stocked at a local flourmills in Khyber Pukhtunkhwa by the food ministry, 40,000 ton wheat in government godowns in Charsadda and DI Khan, and 7,000 ton wheat in Punjab. The government of Pakistan has also decided to put a ban on export of meat and goats, cows and other halal animals to Afghanistan. Most of the food items specially wheat and wheat products besides meat and halal animals are being exported to Afghanistan from Pakistan legally besides smuggling of these items is also going on from Pakistan. The practice has already hit the locals badly and with destruction caused by recent floods, Pakistan is finding it hard to cater to the food needs of its own public.
