Sindh government released 6-year old wheat stocks; a matter in discussion.
In a recent meeting, the cabinet discussed the release of wheat and sugar stocks from provinces’ reserves. The act of the Sindh government was quite suspicious when it released 6-year-old wheat stock.
It is said that the Sindh government released 32,000-ton of wheat stocks from six years. In addition to this, did not furnish information on recent sugar and wheat stocks’ release which has contributed to a hike in essential commodity prices.
The cabinet said that a large quantity of wheat was wasted which has made laymen suffer in terms of food price inflation.
In a separate matter, the federal cabinet was also informed on the developments made on the Sugar Inquiry Committee report following which many sugar millers approached courts. It was notified that the NAB is examining the matter.
During the meeting, it was said that some 370,000 government employees would receive a salary increment.
The source also informed that the PM inquired about the vacant top positions in the government offices which the federal cabinet confirmed were 86 seats.
