LAHORE –FAP held an emergent meeting chaired by its president Tariq Bucha strongly criticised the wheat procurement policy adopted and implemented by provincial Food Department and PASSCO, says a press release.

Government failed to ensure fair prices to the farmers because of poor purchase policy including wheat bags distribution to the farmers through Food Department and PASSCO.

Government should increase its target of annual wheat procurement.

Wheat storage facility should make sure that wheat is stored properly without losing its quality. Government inefficiency on the export front needs a permanent board that should look after such issues but should not be boards like they have made in other areas which have become victims of politics.
