LAHORE (92 News) - People are forced to purchase flour at a high rate after disappearance of the subsidized flour from shops.

People told 92 News that shopkeepers were selling a 15kg bag at Rs1,210 after unavailability of 10kg and 20kg bags at subsidized rates.

The Food Department is providing 16,700 tons of wheat to flour mills.
