Karachi, March 13, 2015 (PPI-OT): The Home Department Government of Sindh has under Section 144 Cr.P.C. imposed complete ban on movement/inflow of wheat across the borders of Sindh Province and on movement of wheat flour to Karachi from other districts of Sindh Province for a period of sixty (60) days with immediate effect.
It is mentioned here that the Food Department Government of Sindh is starting procurement of Wheat Crop-2015 with effect from 15-03-2015 and there is likelihood that the wheat may get its way from Punjab province to Sindh through bordering districts and reach Karachi being main consuming center.
