60 wheat flour sale points established in Attock.

TAXILA -- Deputy Commissioner Dr Hassan Waqar Cheema has said that the district administration has set up 60 sale points in Attock to provide wheat flour at a subsidised rate to the masses.

While giving details to journalists during his visit to a sale point in Attock on Saturday, Mr Cheema said five sale points were established in each tehsil and 30 in the Attock city.

Responding to a question, Mr Cheema said that the district administration and officers of food departments were monitoring the sale of wheat flour at fixed prices on a daily basis.

He said that earlier only 30 sale points were established in the district which was increased to 60 during the current week, keeping in view the artificial shortage made by the stockists and retailers.

'To discourage hoarding and profiteering by stockists and retailers, the district administration has established sale points in which millers supply flour to the consumers under the supervision of officials of the district administration'.
