I bet there are many such warehouses in Punjab storing food hence the price hikes. Some of them will have Noon league involvement I suspect. How else can home grown food double in price suddenly.

UNDER WHİCH LAW THE LEMONS WERE SEIZED AND AUCTIONED? IS THERE A LAW TO PROHIBIT TRADER TO STORE HIS TRADE COMMODITY IN STORAGE? sUPPOSE IF THERE IS A LAW, WHY THE TRADER WAS NOT WARNED NOT TO STORE HIS COMMODITY?WHY THE OFFICERS INVOLVED IN CRACKDOWN SHOULD NOT BE TRIED IN COURT OF LAW AND FINED?
