The biggest beneficiary of the sugar and flour crisis was Jahangir Tareen of the ruling party
He said that the government was responsible for the rise in sugar prices due to the Economic Co-ordination Committee (ECC) and the cabinet and it proved that the Prime Minister was incompetent and corrupt.
He said that the commission was informed orally today but if necessary, they can also give it in writing.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the price of sugar went up due to the decisions of ECC and Cabinet. The export of sugar continued for 16 months but the government did not take notice of the increase in price. ECC and Cabinet members should be called and asked why export. Not stopped? The ECC and the cabinet will have to respond to the sugar issue.

The former prime minister said that the record of corruption is the decisions of the cabinet and the minutes of the meeting of the ECC. He told the commission of inquiry that they will come when called. We gave a subsidy of more than Rs 20 billion but when we gave the subsidy, the Chinese The price of a penny did not increase.
