People involve in artificial shortage of urea to be dealt with iron hands: PM

By

Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Friday that Pakistan produces 25,000 tons of urea daily, which is enough to meet its needs.

On Friday, he is presiding over a meeting to review the supply and demand of fertilizers in Islamabad.

During the meeting, the Prime Minister stated that those who artificially create a shortage of urea in the country will be dealt with by iron hand.

He said last year, the country produced record bumper crops of wheat, sugarcane, cotton and maize, adding that due to the government s agriculture friendly policies, farmers earned an additional 822 billion rupees in the fiscal year 2020-21.

Imran Khan went on to say that increased income has resulted in higher purchase of urea by farmers.

He said government is focusing on providing adequate amount of fertilizer for maximum production of wheat to ensure food security in the country.

The Prime Minister instructed the relevant authorities to take all possible measures to effectively manage the urea supply chain for rabbi crops.
