Sindh govt responsible for sugar crisis: Shahbaz Gill

sugar crisis

Islamabad-: Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill on Sunday blamed the Government of Sindh for the recent sugar crisis in the country.
Addressing a press conference, Shahbaz Gill said that the Sindh government went against the national interest of the country just to gain some political benefit.
Shahbaz Gill said that the sugar mills which used to start operation in October were deliberately closed by the provincial government. He added that; however, the public knows everything.
A day earlier, a spokesperson of Finance Ministry Muzzammil Aslam Saturday said that increase in demand for sugar and a delay in crushing sugarcane caused a hike in the price of the commodity.
Muzzammil Aslam, while addressing a press conference, said that the government has had sugar stock for 22 days but the Sindh government is not asking the Centre for cheap sugar nor is it starting crushing sugarcane.
Muzzammil Aslam said that price of sugar is a provincial matter and because of that Punjab government raided several warehouses which were hoarding sugar which reduced the price of the essential commodity but on the other hand, the Sindh government did not take any such action and is just busy in blaming the federal government for the hike.
