Government may miss wheat target, claims Wattoo

President Punjab PPP Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo has expressed his apprehensions that country may miss the wheat target for this year due to water shortage following the load-shedding as farmers are not able to run their tube wells. He said that the impression of present government as anti-farmers government was strengthening with every passing day. All the representatives organisations of the country are against the government, he observed.

He pointed out that the rice growers had been devastated due to the abject support price this year and the government's step-motherly treatment meted out to them was unforgiving. He said that the government even did not discuss the issue of compensating the rice growers not to speak of extending subsidy to them to dispel the impression of its hostility towards them.

He thanked the Prime Minister for forcing the people of the country including him to cook food by burning woods because the gas had become a scarce commodity. This government has driven the nation to the Stone Age. He added that the people of Punjab were getting ready to beat the heat with handmade fan invented by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in the face of anticipated agonising load shedding of electricity in the summer season.
