The flour crisis intensified again, and it became difficult to obtain expensive flour
The flour crisis has intensified across the country, causing severe hardship to citizens.
Due to the flour crisis in Lahore, oven owners have decided to increase the price of plain bread, after which the price of bread is likely to be raised to Rs 10 from tomorrow.
The president of Nan Bai Association says that the price of bread of Rs. 8 has to be increased. A 15 kg bag of poor quality flour has also crossed Rs. 950 while a 20 kg bag of Rs. 860 is nowhere to be found.
He said that during the last 10 years the price of bread has remained at Rs. 6 but this year alone the price of everything including bread has gone up many times.
On the other hand, citizens in Peshawar are also worried about rising flour prices and those who cannot afford it have to stand in long queues to get government flour.
Citizens collect a photocopy of their identity card and buy a 20 kg bag from designated dealers for Rs. 860.
On the situation of flour crisis, vendors say that flour dealers are crying over the high price of flour from Punjab.
Vendors said they sell a 20kg bag of flour for Rs 1,320 and a bag of fine flour for Rs 1,400, earning a profit of only Rs 10-15.
Citizens say that the quality of government flour should be improved and the quota should be doubled so that they can easily buy flour without wasting time.
