After the strike of flour mills in Karachi, the price of flour has reached Rs150/kg.
The raise in flour prices are deepening as the commodity is disappearing from the market due to strikes in flour mills. Sindh Flour Mills Association chairman Chaudhry Aamir said 90 flour mills in Karachi are closed meanwhile, the Sindh food department is trying to force them for reopening the mills.
The flour mills in Karachi are on strike for an indefinite period against the ‘illegal’ raids. The association’s spokesperson on Thursday said in a statement that six flour mills were ‘illegally’ sealed by the authorities in Karachi and Nawabshah yesterday.
The association demanded the government reopen the flour mills and provision of cheap and standard wheat.
The flour mill owners announced that they’ll be going to extend the strike until the government fulfills their demands.
