Heavy rains & floods have damaged around 1.6 million tonnes of wheat stock, stored in government warehouses in the Larkana division.
As per details, the Sindh government failed in saving wheat stock during the recent rains and about 600,000 tonnes of wheat stock, stored inside warehouses and ten lacs of wheat lying in the open sky in the Larkana district were completely damaged.
Due to damage to the wheat stock, it is being feared that flour prices will raise up to Rs200 per kg in the near future, which is currently being sold at Rs120 per kg.
Meanwhile, the hoarding of wheat is also underway after the Sindh government fixed the Rs4,000 wheat support price.
Remember that already wheat & flour Prices raise up to Rs 120 per kg. The raise in the flour Prices is just due to the heavy rains & floods that have destroyed the wheat farms & also affected the stocked wheat in warehouses.
