Fakhar Imam said that federal government, in collaboration with the provincial governments, is making all-out efforts to ensure uninterrupted supply of wheat and flour to common man in the country on affordable prices.
The minister also called upon the Provincial Government of Sindh to release wheat from its stocks in order to make the prices of the commodity sustainable in local markets.
