No decision about wheat export yet taken, PM informs NA

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif informed the National Assembly on Wednesday that the government has not yet taken any decision regarding export of wheat.

Responding to a point of order raised by a parliamentarian, he said, “No decision has been made for the export of wheat. I want to bring it on record before the House that there is no such decision for the wheat export.”

PM Shehbaz Sharif while referring to the PTI government’s sugar and wheat scams recalled that it was also on record that in the past wheat and sugar were first exported and later imported and where the billions and trillions of rupees went was part of the history.

The prime minister hailed Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq for showing “generosity” to give floor to the opposition leader which was not practiced during the speakership of Asad Qaiser.
