No Mafia can take advantage amid the crisis: PM
Lahore, 5th April: With the pandemic crisis already looming in the country, we are facing the sugar and wheat shortage which has caused a sudden increase in their prices by a Mafia in Pakistan.
According to reports of Baaghi TV, Prime Minister Imran Khan has taken the notice of such hoarders and profiteers and has promised to look into the forensic report, after which he will take action as soon as possible. He said that even the Mafia would no longer be able to benefit by harming the people.
I await the detailed forensic reports now by the high-powered commission, which will come out on 25 April, before taking action. InshaAllah, after these reports come out no powerful lobby will be able to profiteer at the expense of our public.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has set up an inquiry commission on the recommendation of the Investigative Committee, expressing its determination to punish those responsible for the sugar shortage in the country.
The commission has been established under the Inquiry Act 2017 and has already begun its work. Nine teams of the inquiry commission are conducting a forensic audit of the sugar mills benefiting from the crisis, including the sugar mills of Jahangir Tareen.
The government has issued a statement on the reports of the Investigation Committee on the sugar and flour crisis, stating that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Prime Minister Imran Khan regard transparency and accountability as the basic principle of democracy and good governance.
Two inquiry committees are set up by the PM, which are being headed by the DG FIA to determine who is responsible for the flour crisis.
