The prime minister Imran Khan is keen to fulfill his promise of punishing those who are involved in wheat and sugar crisis.
He seemed adamant on taking action against anyone who will be found guilty or involved in the sugar and wheat crises.
It is worth noticing that on Saturday, an FIA report had cleared that senior PTI leader Jahangir Tareen and Bakhtiar’s brother have benefited the most from the sugar crisis that took place in January this year.
He took to his twitter handle and wrote, “After these reports come out no powerful lobby will be able to profiteer at the expense of our public.”
I await the detailed forensic reports now by the high-powered commission, which will come out on 25 April, before taking action. InshaAllah, after these reports come out no powerful lobby will be able to profiteer at the expense of our public.

“This is unprecedented in Pakistan’s history. Previous political leaderships because of their vested interests and compromises lacked the moral courage to order and release such reports,” he had earlier tweeted.
Earlier, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan has cleared on Monday that PM Imran had proved that “there were no sacred cows” in Pakistan.
While saying this, Dr. Firdous was actually referring to the prime minister’s cabinet reshuffle.
She informed the masses that PM has kept his promise of introducing the self-accountability.
“These decisions also reflect his bright thinking of caring for the masses rights instead of a few individuals. And, there is no precedence in 70 years of Pakistan of this self-accountability and it also reflects that the focus and center of his policies are the masses; for their facilitation and resolution of problems and issues,” she noted.
Meanwhile, Jahangir Tareen has informed that he will challenge the sugar crisis probe committee if he will be held responsible.
He said, “I’m in constant contact with the prime minister and I stand with him.” He also informed that he had provided 20,000 tons of sugar to utilities stores at Rs67 per kilo.
“If I had not sold sugar at Rs67 a kilo, I’d have donated Rs250 million to the Prime Minister’s Corona Relief Fund,” he added.
While cooperating with the FIA in its investigations, he, however, makes sure that he “will challenge the committee if it holds me responsible.”
