Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) Chairman Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao on Saturday asked the federal and Punjab governments to help lift the ban on the movement of wheat, a press release said. He expressed these views while talking to a delegation of women party workers at Watan Kor, QWP headquarters in Peshawar. Aftab Sherpao said the flour prices had soared in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa due to the ban on the supply of the commodity from Punjab. “This ban has caused resentment among the residents of KP,” he said, asking the government to help lift the restrictions to facilitate the people. Rejecting the ban, he questioned whether KP was not part of the country. The QWP leader demanded an end to the illegal and unconstitutional ban on the wheat movement in the province. He feared that the prices of flour would go up further if the government did not intervene and took steps to bring down the rates. Expressing concern over the law and order in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, he asked the government to take concrete steps to bring the situation under control. The QWP leader said that the people felt insecure due to the poor security situation.
