PM to announce roadmap today to ensure food supplies countrywide


Prime Minister Imran Khan will announce a comprehensive roadmap today to ensure uninterrupted food supplies across the country.

This was stated by Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan, while briefing media persons about PTI’s Core Committee meeting chaired by Prime Minister in Islamabad.

She said the Prime Minister renewed his pledge to ensure delivery of ration and food supplies to deserving poor families across the country at their doorsteps.

The Special Assistant said due to ongoing lockdown to prevent spread of coronavirus, national economy is being affected and chain of daily use items has slowed down.

She said the Prime Minister advised Minister for National Food Security to ensure availability of food items, including flour.

Firdous Ashiq Awan said there is no shortage of edible items in the country and the committee expressed the resolve to treat hoarders and profiteers with an iron hand.
