Due to the continuous increase in flour prices, the Muttahida Nanbai Association decided to close business in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for an indefinite period.
According to sources within the Nanbai association said the announcement of the date for the closure of the business in Punjab and KP will be announced after a joint meeting of the association.
Sources further said further increase in the nan and roti prices due to increases in flour prices will be an injustice to the masses.
It is pertinent to mention here that the flour crisis has intensified across the country, with prices of the commodity have skyrocketed.
The flour prices skyrocketed in Lahore while the commodity was not available in most shops across the province. The 15kg flour bag is being sold for Rs 2,050 now, after the increase of Rs 150.
