Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader and opposition leader in the Sindh Assembly, Firdous Shamim Naqvi, blamed the provincial government on the flour crisis in Sindh, blaming the provincial government on artificial turmoil until the country was right.
During a press conference with other PTI leaders, Halim Adil Sheikh and Khurram Sher Zaman in Karachi, he said, "Although there is little credibility, it is the compulsion of the country, unless it is valid that we have to use military institutions."
In his explanation, Firdous Shamim Naqvi said, 'Because there (in the military) there is still some discipline and accountability'.
He said new discoveries about the flour crisis are coming up in Sindh.
The provincial leader said, "It is important to know who owns the flour mills in the Sindh government. Each member of the Sindh and the National Assembly has two flour mills."
In addition, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (Sindh) leader Halim Adil Shaikh has said that Sindh government raised only one lakh tonnes of wheat from Pasco to create artificial wheat crisis while the rest is in warehouses.
He said that 'Prime Minister Imran Khan provided 4 lakh tonnes of wheat to the Sindh government but the present Sindh government did not provide the flour to the flour mills'.
He said that the Sindh government also sent 4 million tonnes of wheat into the market.
Halim Adil Shaikh said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had terminated the PML-N government's contract to export wheat to Afghanistan last July, after which the Sindh government claims that the wheat was being supplied to Kabul.
He said that it is the responsibility of the Sindh government to maintain control over the prices of flour, for which their performance is disappointing. Food department of Sindh owes Rs 90 billion.
Halim Adil Shaikh sought response from the Sindh government and asked why the Food Department was owed Rs 90 billion and how? Out of 8 million tons of wheat, where did 4 million tons of wheat go? What is the payment for the wheat delivered to the creditor overseas?
He said the purchase of wheat after the 18th Amendment was the responsibility of the provincial government
In addition, Khurram Sher Zaman said that Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah had failed completely.
He said that the Sindh government would have to respond to the wheat crisis
