KARACHI (APP) A spokesman of Trading Corporation of Pakistan (TCP) said Sunday that the corporation did not receive any request from provinces including Punjab for the supply of sugar. The spokesman said that the corporation can only release the sugar on request by the provinces or directed by the federal government. Commenting on the news of non-supply of 15,000 metric tons of sugar in the media, he said it was unfounded and baseless. A Trading Corporation of Pakistan (TCP) official said that the corporation has a stock of 300,000MT of sugar which is sufficient for Ramazan and Eid. He said that last year, Trading Corporation of Pakistan has released sugar quota for all provinces, but none of them lifted the sanctioned quantity despite repeated requests. He said that Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the Cabinet issued orders to the corporation for import of commodities whenever demand is felt during shortage. Sugar can be supplied to provinces if requests are received, he added.
