Pakistan Flour Crisis: Balochistan province has been facing a flour crisis for the last three weeks amid the ongoing inflation in the country. Mill owners have blamed the provincial government for failing to procure the required wheat this year. According to the report of ARY News, representatives of Balochistan chapter of Pakistan Flour Mills Association (PAFML) said that there is a huge gap between demand and supply, which has led to the crisis. “The flour mill owners were being blamed for the crisis, while in fact the provincial government has imposed inter-provincial and inter-district restrictions on the transportation of wheat during the harvesting season,” he said.

According to the report of ARY News, earlier on September 13, the flour mill owners had blamed the provincial government for the ongoing flour crisis in the province. Let us tell you that Pakistan has increased the prices of wheat and flour by 10-20 percent. In Balochistan, a 20 kg bag of flour was being sold for Rs 2,380 to Rs 2,500. That is, the price of flour per kg has reached about one hundred and fifty rupees per kg.

Vegetable shortage across the country

According to The Express Tribune, Ismail Iqbal Security Head of Research Fahad Rauf said, “The prices of vegetables have gone up because of the floods.”
