Govt giving subsidy of Rs 80b on flour to masses: Punjab Minister
Punjab Senior Minister Abdul Aleem Khan has said that the government has increased the support price of wheat from 1400 rupees to 1800 rupees per 40 to benefit the farmers.
In a statement, he, however, said the price of flour will not be changed despite the increase in the support price of the wheat.
He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan wants to ensure supply of flour at low-cost flour to citizens at all costs hence subsidy of 80 billion rupees is being provided to maintain flour price at current rate.
