HYDERABAD – Special Assistant to Prime Minister Dr Arbab Ghulam Rahim on Tuesday expressed concerns over delay in start of cane crushing season in Sindh and demanded the Sindh government to ensure the crushing of sugarcane immediately.
In a letter addressed to Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Ghulam Rahim said the crushing season was supposed to start from
October 1, 2021 but due to delaying tactics from the provincial government, the season had still not started despite passage of one month resulting in financial losses to cane growers.
He said that majority of the sugar mill owners belonged to the provincial ruling party and more than 17 sugar mills owned by the Omni group.
He further said the provincial government was protecting the interests of the sugar mill owners instead of the growers by not starting crushing in time, adding that the Sindh government was responsible for the sugar, wheat and vegetable price hike.
Arbab said the Sindh government and the provincial ruling party was agitating and taking out protest marches against hike in the prices of sugar and other basic necessities despite the fact that price control was a provincial subject.
