Written by The Frontier Post

PESHAWAR (APP): The meeting of the Executive Body of Pakistan Flour Mills Association Sunday said that banning wheat supply on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by the government of Punjab is unacceptable and such steps would be challenged at all forums.
The meeting was presided over by the Chairman of the Pakistan Flour Mills Association Sabir Ahmed Bangash here. Apart from the Divisional Senior Vice Chairman of Pakistan Flour Mills Association, senior leaders of the association also attended the meeting of the Executive Body. Flour Mills Association Group Leader Muhammad Naeem Butt was also present on the occasion.
Addressing the meeting, Sabir Ahmed Bangash, Chairman of the PFMA, said that Punjab province has started banning the supply of wheat to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which is not justified at any level. All these restrictions are unconstitutional and illegal, Mr. Sabir Ahmed Bangash said. He said the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government should take stern notice of these restrictions. These sanctions are a gross violation as far as the right of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and its people is concerned, he concluded. He said such banning of the Punjab government would be challenged at all forums.
