Prime Minister Imran Khan while chairing a meeting of the Federal Cabinet said the purpose of making public the sugar inquiry report was to bring facts and reasons of an increase in sugar prices before the nation and to reform the system by rectifying its demerits in the light of its findings.
The purpose of taking such measures was to ensure that in the future the people could be protected from exploitation and the burden of an unnecessary increase in commodity prices, he added.
The cabinet was briefed about future strategy and further action by the relevant authorities in the light of recommendations of the sugar inquiry report.
The meeting received a detailed presentation on the progress of the wheat supply by the provinces and the future estimate of its demand and supply in the country.

It also decided to form a high-level committee to make recommendations in this regard, in addition to proposing reforms regarding flour mills.
The prime minister directed the interior secretary to present recommendations of the task force about countering of smuggling so that further action could be taken in that regard.
