During his visit, Amir Mir ex­pressed his disappointment over poor arrangements.

Additionally, he ordered suspen­sion of Naib Tehsildar Narang Mandi Noor Muhammad for failing to ensure adequate arrangements. Amir Mir praised Assistant Commissioner Zain­ab Tahir for her efforts in investigating the scam and directed that all available resources be utilized for making the free flour scheme a success, to provide relief to the common man. He empha­sized the importance of making cor­rupt elements an example and directed the establishment of information desks at the distribution centers to end long queues.

He reiterated that every eligible citizen should receive free flour and the relief should reach the common man in every possible way.
