HUNZA (APP): There is no shortage of wheat in any district of Gilgit-Baltistan as ample quantity was being supplied to the upper areas before the start of winter season, said Director Civil Supply Ikram Ullah on Tuesday.
Talking to APP he said warehouses had been established at various main points of all the districts and supply of wheat at these warehouses was continued.
He said the department had always worked to facilitate masses and no negligence, in this regard, on the part of any official would be tolerated.
He said the department officials were discharging their duties honestly in all the districts.
Responding to a question he said he would not bear a single penny of corruption in civil supply.
“It is our duty to provide wheat to the masses at their door step,” Ikram added.
He said stern action would be taken against the dealers who would try to sell wheat in black.
