Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif Wednesday formed an investigation committee to probe into the scam of billions of rupees of the wheat import scheme.
According to the 24News HD TV channel, the PM appointed Justice (Retired) Mian Mushtaq as the head of the committee.
The sources said that the committee will investigate the loss of billions of rupees to the country's exchequer due to the unnecessary import of wheat.
Sources have further said that the committee will submit a report to PM Shehbaz Sharif in two weeks after a complete investigation.
On the other hand, the PM has taken notice of farmers' complaints regarding the procurement of wheat and issued orders to the concerned government department to procure wheat from farmers last week.
Last Saturday, the PM also increased the federal government's wheat procurement target of 1.4 million metric tons to 1.8 million metric tons.
The Prime Minister also issued orders to PASCO to increase the wheat procurement target and ensure immediate procurement.
The Prime Minister directed PASCO to give priority to transparency and convenience of farmers regarding the procurement of wheat.
