LAHORE - Punjab Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar has directed the concerned authorities to stabilize the prices of wheat and flour in the province and made it clear that any unjustified increase would not be tolerated.

He directed the Food Department as well as the administrative officers to ensure regular monitoring of the prices and asked the Price-Control Magistrates to take action against those involved in the unjustified increase in flour-price.

Similarly, administrative machinery should ensure availability of wheat and flour at fixed rates. The CM made it clear that prices of wheat and flour would also be monitored by him and he would check the rates by conducting raids if and when required.

The people could not be left at the mercy of illegal profiteers, the CM emphasised.

He asserted that an increase in rates of essential edibles was unacceptable after a decrease in petroleum products.

He said that the Line Departments should perform proactively and avoid lip-service. Public interest was dear to the government and steps for providing relief to the people should be visible at the grassroots, the CM added.
