ISLAMABAD, AUG 20 /DNA/ – In view of rising inflation and poverty in Pakistan, an international organization of overseas Pakistanis has launched a campaign to sell flour at Rs.20 per kg. Initially, the campaign is being launched in Karachi and Islamabad.
Speaking to reporters here at National Press Club, the founder and Chairman of “I am Pakistan Worldwide Movement”, Syed Ahmed Ali said that inflation is skyrocketing in Pakistan while the rising price of flour has deprived the common man of the right to have two meals a day – that is the reason Pakistan Movement has decided to sell flour in Pakistan at only Rs.20 per kilogram.
Syed Ahmed Ali said that free distribution of flour was not being done because many people did not accept charity. “The campaign is being run purely to help white-clad families”, he added.
According to the Chairman of the Overseas Pakistanis’ Organization, initially 100,000 kg of flour will be sold daily in Islamabad and Karachi.
