In various operations on Saturday in Rawalpindi, Punjab, the Punjab Food department discovered over 66,000 kg of flour that had been stockpiled, according to ARY News of Pakistan.

The food department is keeping an eye on the stocks using its tracking system to help the citizens.

 

According to information, during various searches on godowns in Rawalpindi, the deputy director of the food department found more than 66,000 kg of wheat flour that had been stockpiled.

 

Six persons have had cases filed against them, and a flour mill has been sealed. According to the deputy director, the recovered wheat flour will be distributed to the general public at a certain price set by the government.

 

In light of the severe wheat shortage, the Punjab food department had decided to investigate the track record of the flour mills.

 

According to specifics, the food department requested three months' worth of documents from flour vendors and store owners.

 

As many retailers worry about the shortage, the officials inquired as to whether the flooring that the government provides to floor mills also reaches the shops.
