Severe rains have damaged around 1.6 million tonnes of wheat stock, stored in government warehouses in Larkana division.

As per details, the Sindh government failed in saving wheat stock during the recent rains and 600,000 tonnes of wheat stock, stored inside warehouses and ten lacs of wheat lying under open sky in Larkana district were completely damaged.

Due to damage to the wheat stock, it is being feared that flour prices will hit Rs200 per kg in the near future, which is currently being sold at Rs120 per kg.

Meanwhile, the hoarding of wheat is also underway after the Sindh government fixed Rs4,000 wheat support price.
