Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Sunday that, after seeing a detailed forensic report on the preliminary findings, he would take action against those responsible for the rise in sugar and wheat prices.
“I await the detailed forensic reports now by the high-powered commission, which will come out on 25 April, before taking action,” the prime minister said in a tweet.
“After these reports come out no powerful lobby will be able to profiteer at the expense of our public,” said the premier. He added that the preliminary reports into sudden price hikes of sugar and wheat have been released immediately without and “alteration or tampering”.
“This is unprecedented in Pakistan’s history. Previous political leaderships because of their vested interests and compromises lacked the moral courage to order and release such reports,” the prime minister added.
