In a statement issued here, the minister said Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif contacted the federal government for restoration of subsidy on fertilisers and to protect the future of farmers.

He said Sindh government should also ensure the sale of fertilisers at subsidised prices. A huge stock of fertilisers was available in Punjab and, “We will not allow any body to deprive farmers of benefits of the subsidy,” he added.
