Perhaps, it is the reason that the Sindh government decided to provide cash to the poor families so that they could buy flour and other edibles from the places of their choices.
On other hand, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif directed to improve the free flour distribution and ensure immediate registration of deserving people enabling them to get free wheat flour being distributed by the government.
During his visit to a distribution center at Company Bagh in Sargodha, he said setting up of NADRA and BISP counters at the distribution centers must be ensured.
On the occasion, the Prime Minister distributed free flour bags to deserving people and checked the quality of flour.
Later talking to media, Shehbaz Sharif said any negligence in the process of free flour to the people would not be tolerated.
The Prime Minister also heard complaints of the people and issued directions to resolve them.
