He informed the senate that report was sent back to FIA for explanation and assured that government will submit report in next session.
He emphasized that government will take strict action against mafia involved in sugar and flour crisis.
Raja Zafar-ul-Haq claimed that government returned the report because it wasn’t supporting government’s stance.
