Islamabad: The Sugar millers in Pakistan have opposed the government’s move to control the increased sugar prices and demand that the government should allow them to do business without any restriction as per the Constitution.
According to the news report published Tribune.com.pk, the All Pakistan Sugar Mills Association (APSMA) has stated that the step taken by the government is against the sugar industry.
The APSMA has written to the Prime Minister requesting him a meeting and giving them a chance to clarify their stand on the issue.
The APSMA has stated that this is an organised campaign launched to damage the sugar industry of Pakistan which is the second largest industry.
Pakistan is reeling under high sugar prices. According to the statistics department, in major cities of the country prices crossed Rs 100 per kg. In the recent past, Pakistan had issued many international tenders to purchase sugar. The country in 2020 had approved the import of sugar to meet the domestic shortage.
